Given the facts, the business focus and taxonomy must shift from an IT and security narrative to that of resiliency. The CEO, senior management and board must be asking if their business is prepared for and able to carry on business operations during and after a cyber crisis. To survive and even grow your business, an organisation must put cyber resiliency at the heart of its cyber and digital strategy.
Cyber Management Alliance’s Executive Briefing and Awareness Session (EBAS) is specially designed for executive management, CEOs and boards of directors, engaging them in a business context to help explain the threats and risks from cyber-attacks, and providing them with simple, tactical and strategic steps to help improve their resilience to reputation-damaging cyber crises.
A cyber-crisis is often invisible and near impossible to detect in the early stages. In many cyber-attacks, by the time a business detects the attack it is often too late. The data has been stolen, the newspapers know about your attack, and your customers are worried about their personal data being in the hands of criminals.
The Cyber Security Awareness Training for Executives is structured around key topics and based on our experience with clients from different sectors around the globe. However, it is flexible and can be tailored to the type of audience and business.

In almost every situation we recommend at least one pre-workshop, 2-hour preparation session to ensure that we have a good understanding of the purpose, requirements and key outcomes of the session.
During this session, we also aim to understand the attendees, their vision and objectives, and the unique challenges the business is facing in the current environment.
Where the session needs to be tailored to bespoke requirements, we will work with the client to ensure the session meets their requirements.
The Executive Briefing and Awareness Session structure is based on our experience with a broad range of clients from different sectors. This can be customised as per your requirements.
