What you will learn

Cybersecurity leadership and management are two high-level competencies required to successfully administer a cybersecurity division that produces the essential level of security, trust and stability (STS) demanded by an organization. Although leadership and management are prerequisite expertise for all information systems security officers (ISSO) and/or chief information security officers (CISO), they must always be intentionally cultivated. Using industry standards, frameworks and models as guidance, this learning path will focus on the key objective elements (KOE) by discussing the information security strategies’ alignment with the organizational strategy, regulatory systems and operational excellence.
