Isn’t cybersecurity somebody else’s job?
Basic cybersecurity literacy is becoming increasingly vital to business executives and leaders across an array of industries, sectors, and nations. Cyber attackers, ranging from hactivists to organized crime networks and even nation states, are targeting vulnerable networks and are frequently successful in stealing funds as well as valuable intellectual property.
Congress, international organizations, and industry groups continue to call for cybersecurity best practices to better manage the multifaceted cyber threat facing the private sector. However, it is not always clear what those practices should be, or how to implement them in a dynamic, global regulatory environment.
The Global Cybersecurity Foundations digital badge program will enable you to answer these questions and more, equipping you with the tools you need to spot cyber threats and opportunities in an increasingly crowded and risky global marketplace. You will gain a thorough understanding of trends in cybersecurity litigation and federal cybersecurity policy, as well as how other cyber powers—in particular the US and Europe—are approaching common problems such as managing security and privacy concerns in the burgeoning Internet of Everything.
