NICF- Cybersecurity Risk Awareness

Overview

In our current digitally disrupted era, cybersecurity has now become more critical and the stakes are much higher. Daily cyber attack occurrences demonstrate the risks posed by cyber-threats – from individual, opportunistic hackers, to professional and organised cyber criminals groups with strategies to systematically steal intellectual property, disrupt businesses and even threaten our safety.

Investing in cyber technology alone to address cyber threats is no longer sufficient. The biggest risks of cyber attack lies in the effective management of humans – the weakest link in cyber threat. This requires putting in place the right governance and the right supporting processes, along with the right enabling cyber technology. Such complexity cannot be an excuse for anyone within an organisation to differ accountability and responsibility to technical “experts” – the cybersecurity professionals. It is essential that the organisation takes control of allocating the right resources to address cyber threats, actively manage governance, risk and responses to cyber threats and incidents. This includes creating an informed and knowledgeable organisational culture that emphasises that cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility – no exception.

This course is part of the CyberSecurity Series offered by NUS-ISS.
