Programme Overview: 

This programme series aim to empower participants from all industries with the fundamental knowledge
of cyber security for them to make strategic decisions around cyber security. ​

Key Takeaways:

Upon completion of the series, you will:

  • Obtain a practical understanding of cyber security and its implications to your business

  • Get latest technology developments and insights from world-class academics and industry
    leaders to translate theory into practice

  • Connect and communicate with like-minded professionals to explore and expand
    the business opportunities

    “…i always emphasize cyber security or security is a field that you cannot ignore the reality. You cannot just go theoretical because as I always emphasize, security itself is meaningless until you know what you want to protect  and security as a concept cannot exist on its own… so that's why when we learn security we always need to strike a balance and ideally learn both the concept as well as how it exists in real world and what are the problems that you want to solve in real world… the point about what type of job also depends on after you learn about the basic security concepts or the important security concepts what are the other application domain you want to apply to… it (level of abstraction) gives you a two-dimensional perspective to what you can learn and what you can do in this cyber security industry or in this profession...
