Achieving resilience in the cyber ecosystem

Speaker: Kartik Shinde


Traditional security measures have to be revised for organisational survival in the emerging cyber ecosystem. Businesses need to progress beyond perimeter security and defence in depth. Today’s cyber-resilient organisations leverage exceptional resilience leadership, culture, networks and change readiness to create a sustainable advantage over other organisations, cyber criminals and other malicious actors. This Mastercourse will discuss these issues in-depth and help you adapt these measures to create a cyber-resilient organisation.
