After participating in this course, you will be able to: 

  • Establish or improve your cybersecurity and privacy management program using international standards, allowing you to effectively perform core cybersecurity and privacy activities at work, and in your personal life; in all locations where personal and sensitive data is located.
  • Implement cybersecurity and privacy controls to meet compliance requirements, prevent security incidents, protect privacy, and improve safety in work, public, and personal living environments.
  • Identify personal data and other sensitive data throughout work and personal systems, then determine security and privacy safeguards needed to protect personal and sensitive data (such as financial, design, and project data) during collection, storage, transmission, and processing.
  • Understand current and common cybersecurity and privacy threats and vulnerabilities (ransomware, other malware, supply chain partners, social engineering, zero-day threats, etc.) and associated protections to protect against them.
  • Have access to additional resources to use to maintain ongoing privacy, security, and associated safety protections.

This course provides a succinct overview of cybersecurity and privacy risks of which all engineers and technical professionals need to be aware, and how to effectively mitigate the risks within organizations and in the personal lives of personnel. Examples of the concepts are provided, along with descriptions and advice for planning how to address the risks, and the next steps to take practical and effective actions to mitigate the risks.

Real-life use cases of cybersecurity and privacy incidents will be reviewed, and explanations of the types of actions that could have been taken to have prevented the incidents will be discussed.
