Essential Security

What is this foundation class about?

Cyberattacks are a daily reality. Companies face operational standstill due to critical system unavailability or must pay ransoms to reclaim their data. The result? Enormous losses and reputation damage. Every company, irrespective of its size or sector, faces these threats. Unfortunately, cybersecurity no longer means purchasing a firewall and organizing security awareness training. Present-day cybersecurity is a comprehensive and intricate field, requiring a deep understanding of the core assets an organization must safeguard.
The rapid evolution of cybersecurity necessitates that even non-security professionals possess a common understanding of the risks and threats and gain knowledge of security processes and mitigating technologies.

Embrace the practice of co-creation and collaboration with other key stakeholders in your organization. In our masterclass, tailored to enrich your expertise in developing secure solutions, we'll delve into the intricacies of working seamlessly with teams and experts while adhering to regulatory requirements, ensuring that security remains a priority in every design.

Our masterclass focuses on:

  • Effective communication of security intent, fostering a culture that prioritizes safety without compromising innovation.
