As a manager I am looking for employees with logical and creative thinking, analytical and problem-solving skills. This Cyber Security Training programme helped my team develop these even further. It helped them work with internal and external parties as they carry out their responsibilities to maintain a secure working environment.
I selected the Risk Analysis specialism because I wanted to develop my understanding and skills around cyber risk assessment methodologies, threats, trends, audit and assurance. I wanted to understand and appreciate the associated legal standards and regulations relevant to cyber security.
