Cyber Security and Modern Business

Almost every modern business is now digitally active, whether it be through e-commerce, business partners, cloud storage or the activities of their staff.

However while heightened digital activity has brought us greater efficiency and connectedness, there also comes an increased range of potential threats to our organisations.

This short course provides Directors, CEO’s and Managers with a practical toolkit to take back to their businesses, building understanding of key cyber threats and more importantly, knowing what questions to ask of their organisations to ensure business continuity in the modern world.

This course is a collaboration between the University of Waikato Management School and the globally recognised Institute for Security and Crime Science.

Date: Late 2018
Venue: TBC
