WASHINGTON, July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- CyberVista, a cybersecurity training and workforce development company, today launched a Digital Cyber Risk Program designed specifically for company and government boards and executive leadership. The program is 100% online and hosted in an intelligent learning management system that is accessible on mobile, tablet, or desktop allowing busy executives to access anytime from anywhere. The program is the third launch in the Resolve Board and Executive series and is designed to dovetail with CyberVista's existing board and executive leadership custom in-person program and table-top exercise solutions.
"Survey after survey reports cybersecurity as the #1 concern for boards," said Amjed Saffarini, CEO of CyberVista. "Our Digital Cyber Risk Program helps boards and executives, individually and as a leadership team, get up to speed on enterprise-wide cyber risk issues and confidently make informed risk decisions for their organizations."
CyberVista's program is designed to be more than just a course, it's a comprehensive resource comprised of 20+ relevant modules—covering everything from cyber's role in M&A to CISO evaluation. Senior leaders use the program on an ongoing basis to help oversee cyber risk and meet compliance requirements.
"Given today's litigious and regulatory-laden environment, executive cyber oversight is no longer a nice to have but rather a must have," said Jeff Welgan, Executive Director of Executive Training Programs at CyberVista. "Once a leadership team is knowledgeable, they often invite us into the executive suite or boardroom to facilitate a tabletop exercise so they can put their new knowledge to the test, or will ask for a deep dive session on hot topics such as GDPR."
The online program, with an introductory annual license of $1,495, includes high-quality, bite-sized video modules, downloadable materials such as case studies, worksheets, recommended actions/considerations, key questions, and a cybersecurity glossary, subject matter expert interviews, and monthly executive-focused newsletters and video briefings that put cyber knowledge into action via current events.
Key topic areas include understanding and measuring cyber risk, cyber threat actors and motives, protecting crown jewels (most valuable assets), understanding your cyber attack surface and 3rd party risks, M&A cyber due diligence, cyber risk dashboards, auditing and benchmarking, and cyber crisis preparedness and response – all from a leadership perspective. Executives learn how to ask the right questions of their security leaders, understand the answers, and ultimately guide their organization to make the informed cyber risk decisions.
"We find that CISOs and CROs are actively looking for training programs for their boards and executive teams that foster stronger and actionable cyber risk knowledge so that updates become meaningful discussions about cyber risk initiatives – and this program delivers," continued Welgan.
