How to protect your facility from cyberattacks
April 7, 2021
WATERLOO, Ont. – Public and private sector organizations in Canada and around the world are under increasing pressure to protect sensitive information and critical infrastructure from cyber attacks. Threats to information system assets come from state actors, organized crime and hacktivists who now routinely attack our electoral, financial, healthcare and public utility systems.
The purpose of this online program is to provide practical cyber cybersecurity management strategies and recommendations to help minimize the occurrence or impact of cyber-related losses. Our focus is on risk management – identification, management and mitigation of risks – and how to use the various tools and resources to build awareness and cyber resilience.
This program is based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity framework (CSF).
This program is for non-technical senior staff who need a general understanding of cybersecurity practices to protect critical information assets and who need to work with their organization’s IT and cybersecurity experts.
Upon completion you will be awarded a McMaster University – NIHI Certificate of Attendance in Cybersecurity Management. A certificate of attendance is a non-academic certificate acknowledging that the recipient has completed a minimum of 10 hours of education/training in the subject area.
