According to ISACA’s 2019 report on the state of the cybersecurity the findings are: (1) technically proficient cybersecurity professionals continue to be in short supply and difficult to find, (2) retaining cybersecurity professionals is exceptionally difficult and the current enticement of employer-paid training and certification are not ensuring retention, (3) gender diversity programs may be declining and their effectivity is directionally lower and (4) cybersecurity budget increases are expected to slow slightly.
While based on the 2019 annual study of cybercrime by Accenture and Ponemon Institute, they presented the following insights: (1) targets are evolving, from information theft to destruction and disruption of core systems such as industrial cost systems, (2) Impact is evolving, from data being copied (confidentiality), now it’s being destroyed or changed (integrity) and (3) techniques are evolving, cyber criminals are adapting their attack methods against humans – the weakest link through increased phishing and malicious insiders. It also highlights the increase of average cost of cybercrime in 2018 as compared to 2017 from $11.7M t0 $13M or 12% increase and 72% increase in the last five (5) years. The value at risk of from direct and indirect cyberattacks amounts to $5.2T.
Therefore, it is necessary for organizations to have a structured and efficient program face these cybersecurity challenges. This course will assist participants in identifying their critical assets and services, identifying cyber risk scenarios that will impact its confidentiality, integrity and availability, analyzing these cyber risk scenarios as to likelihood and impact and defining and implementing the necessary countermeasures to minimize the impact and likelihood of these scenarios.
This course is intended for all professionals who are interested to approach cybersecurity from a strategic view.
