The pilot Course “Becoming a Cybersecurity Consultant” just closed – What’s next?
Mid May we have successfully ran a 3 half-days webinar, the second part of the pilot course addressing the Cybersecurity Consultant role profile.
The Course “Becoming a Cybersecurity Consultant” was developed and deployed by applying elements of the CONCORDIA Methodology for creating courses for cybersecurity professionals [Link].
The Course is structured in two parts and is organized around three main learning objectives:
- Threats – Get updated on the existing and emerging cybersecurity threats, the assets possible to be impacted, and the latest models of attacks.
- Technology – Become knowledgeable about specific technological threats, learn how to anticipate and prevent them, while developing proactive management skills.
- Economics – Get an understanding of the economics behind cybersecurity activities within your organization. Learn about risk management and information security to protect the corporate reputation and preserve customer loyalty.
For WHO? and HOW?
The Course aims at helping individuals already active in the cybersecurity area acquire a set of knowledge and skills we have identified as relevant and important for the European market. The Course is suitable also for individuals planning to follow a career in cybersecurity, including middle managers and executives.
We invite you to check the Course page [Link] to discover the set of knowledge and skills covered by the course, and the content of the two parts: the online module, and the face-to-face module.
We attached to the Course “Becoming a Cybersecurity Consultant” the skills certification scheme “Certified Cybersecurity Consultant”. People attending the course will get access to the Certification exam – C3 by CONCORDIA.
