Recognise cyber threats and make swift, informed decisions during security breaches, where calm working environments transform into high-stress battle zones.

This programme is designed to educate senior leaders about cybercrime and incident response. You will review a scenario based on real-world intrusions by a sophisticated attacker, examining tactics and technologies from both the attacker’s and victim’s perspectives. This scenario illustrates the most common method that attackers use to establish a foothold and remain undetected in the victim’s network.

The programme also covers the pros and cons of follow-up actions available to the victim and provides critical insight into the many issues investigators and victim organisations face when defending networks and responding to security breaches.
