Oxford Announces New Executive Education Program in Cybersecurity

Apr 16, 2015 2.5 day course to launch in June

The University of Oxford's Saïd Business School has announced plans to launch a new executive education course with a focus on cybersecurity. 

"The Cyber Risk for Leaders Program" is designed to help senior executives identify and manage cybersecurity threats.

"Cyber security is no longer the preserve of the IT Manager," says professor David Upton, who's a co-director of the Cyber Risk for Leaders Programme.

"The scale and potential costs to an organisation means that responsibility for managing that risk lies with the most senior executives – it has to be taken as seriously as any other operational, reputational or financial risk. The problem is that many executives feel unprepared to contribute to the debate and are concerned that they don’t know what questions to ask or how to process the advice they are given to lead their organisations’ response."

The 2.5-day program will pull its curriculum from a variety of disciplines, to help  managers analyze risks to their organization and ask the right questions of the right people.

The new program is set to launch in June. For more information, please see Oxford's Cyber Risk for Leaders Program webpage.
