‘jargon free’ cyber training from Kaspersky


Fostering a stronger security culture within the organization, the new training program aims to raise attendees’ awareness about the modern cybersecurity threat landscape and introduce them to the proper use of cybersecurity skills, as successful cyberattacks and breaches lead, at best, to headaches for a company’s IT, with minor disruptions to internal systems.

Kaspersky has launched an all-new Cybersecurity Executives Online Training. The cybersecurity training is essential for risk management, crisis response, while also empowering business leaders when making effective informed decisions during security incidents. The Cybersecurity for Executives Online Training was created by Kaspersky’s top managers and leading cybersecurity experts. 

Course participants learn the basics of cybersecurity through a tutor-led online video course, covering six main learning modules:

· Introduction to cybersecurity;
· Cyber risks for businesses;
· Cyberattacks and attackers’ tools;
· Protecting yourself and your company from cyberattacks;
· Managing the consequences of cyberattacks;
· The future of cybersecurity.

Eugene Kaspersky, CEO, Kaspersky, said, “Digital technologies have a profound impact on business – bringing greater opportunities, cost optimisation, the ability to scale globally, and many other benefits. As the security and reliability of these technologies have a direct impact on an organization’s performance, overseeing cybersecurity is turning into one of essential duties of a responsible business leader. With this course, we aim to help those in leadership positions by training them on cybersecurity fundamentals, and sharing considerations that executives need to take into account to ensure that their businesses stay one step ahead of the cybercriminals.”

With cybersecurity requiring the active involvement not only of CISOs and IT, but of non-technical leadership as well, with a shared commitment to building a culture of cybersafety throughout the organization, course attendees also benefit from access to materials that can be used on a daily basis and distributed throughout any organization.

In total, it contains 50 lessons of three-to-six minutes each. It can be provided via access to a cloud platform or in SCORM to be integrated into a company’s learning management system. To reinforce new knowledge, the course includes practical tasks for attendees and self-assessment questions at the end of each topic. When users have completed the program, they will receive a Kaspersky certificate of completion.
