Course Overview

Cyberattacks and threats are no longer a case of if, but rather when. Cybercriminals can use phishing emails to gain passwords and credit card details, install malware that disrupts or destroys a computer network, or even use ransomware to hold information hostage. What can you do to protect your business? The Cybersecurity: Managing Risk in the Information Age online short course from Harvard’s Office of the Vice Provost for Advances in Learning (VPAL), in association with HarvardX, offers an in-depth exploration of this complex landscape. This course will help you grow your ability to guard the integrity and confidentiality of your company’s digital information. You’ll learn how to identify and manage operational, litigation, and reputational risk. As you progress through the program, you’ll gain the tools and confidence to conduct vulnerability assessments and locate weaknesses within your organization’s networks, systems, and data, and develop strategies for responding to a cyberattack.Cybersecurity isn’t an IT or tech department responsibility, it’s an organization-wide imperative. That’s why this cybersecurity course is aimed at business leaders and executives, as well as specialists in web security, security administration, or information security roles. In fact, it’s for any professional who wants to understand the full implications of a cyber breach, and have the skills to communicate this to their company and stakeholders. The C-suite or senior management team will learn how to lead their organization in a time of rapidly increasing cyber risk. These leaders will also gain insight into setting an appropriate budget that allows the experts to prepare for and mitigate cyberattacks. This program is also suitably in-depth for cybersecurity professionals – risk analysts, technology specialists, and information security professionals. It unpacks the most common types of cyberattacks, provides strategies for protecting an organization from a threat and its associated risks, and will help professionals develop and lead a cybersecurity plan.
