e-Leadership Master Class cycle on ‘Information Security Management’ launched

We are pleased to announce the start of the newly developed ‘Cyber Security Programme’ addressed to CISOs (Chief Information and Security Officers) as one of the target groups for e-leadership programmes. The programme will start on 22 January 2015.

It was developed and is offered by TIAS School for Business and Society, a Tilburg-based business school in the Netherlands and the Antwerp School of Management in Belgium. It is based on requirements expressed by the EuroCIO Cyber Security Council running with over 15 CISOs who demanded this type of more formal education programme for Security Officers. At a EuroCIO Program Management Committee meeting on 7 October 2014 agreement on responsibilities for all logistics, contracts and marketing activities related to this programme took place. The intention is to later complete this course with the award of a European e-leadership certificate currently under development within the above European initiative. A Program Design Board (about the content of the course) took place on 23 October, while the first Program Management Committee meeting (responsible for all logistics, contracts, marketing) already took place in early October.

The programme’s objectives are to enable participants to learn how to develop information security and risk management strategies and policies suited to the organizational needs and to become an intermediary between management, the IT department and operational units within the organization with regard to information security fostering the creation of urgently needed a European Cyber Security Managers. It is offered in three modules of two days over a period of three months.
