Cyber Information Security Leader

The Cyber Information Security Leader (CISL) is an education that trains future cyber security managers to lead organizations safely through the challenges of digitalization. Despite the high priority of cyber security within top management, cyber security leaders still experience barriers. The course accommodates this need with a focus on strengthening participants’ ability to navigate on executive-level managing politics, culture, and the corporate reporting game – in short, stakeholder management.

The program is tailored for current and aspiring cyber security leaders, enabling them to navigate the corporate landscape. 

With an emphasis on personal leadership and the importance of people management in a competitive market for talent, participants will be equally prepared to build and nurture diverse teams coming from odd corners of the IT universe and neighboring skills areas.

This is not a course that focuses on the technical aspects of cybersecurity – but this is also where I feel comfortable with my knowledge. This is a hands-on approach to leadership presented by industry-experienced instructors, who know what they are talking about – and that has been very inspiring

Lars Gottschalk, Detection & Response Teamlead

Having completed a range of other accredited certifications, I was looking for a certification in cybersecurity with a corporate focus and with emphasis on the board's view - this is definitely it. Its business and corporate approach to cybersecurity with concepts of quantifying risks, and the training in corporate communication towards C-level as well as board-level stakeholders, is highly relevant and rewarding.
