Cyber threats and attacks are among the top challenges facing organizations and governments around the world. Cyber risks are increasing at a rapid rate due to digitization, the use of cloud services, remote work, and sophisticated attacks and threats. In tandem with these trends, jobs that call for cybersecurity skills have surged in BC, Canada and globally.
The new UBC Micro-certificate in Cybersecurity Strategy and Risk Management was developed in consultation with leading BC cybersecurity experts, consultants and academics. Designed for leaders and professionals, the 55-hour part-time micro-certificate prepares participants to create strategic cybersecurity policies and manage cybersecurity threats in their organizations.
