Knowing how to build a cyber defense strategy, what legal tools require consideration, how policies can be written and embedded, are all vital ingredients to successful in-house cyber security practices.
In this unit the learner will bring together knowledge acquired from previous units and build on this in relation to developing plausible strategic plans, executive buy-in and legal compliance. Key questions and challenges are posed: What is ‘strategy’ and what can a ‘cybersecurity’ strategy’ look like? How do we achieve senior-level buy-in? How do we monitor and safeguard compliance, particularly if our operations are dispersed across a multinational environment? What are the key legal requirements and industry standards that can assist and enhance our cyber security strategies and practices?
