All levels of leadership within the organisation need to create policy, strategy and plans that enable effective exercise of accountability, ownership, management, assurance and reporting.
There are numerous factors affecting human interaction with better Cyber Security practices.
Often these behaviours are seen as ‘blockers’ to engagement and therefore progress.
Understanding leadership and its interactions with the workforce is crucial to embedding good Cyber Security practices across a business or organisation.

Delegates will develop a deep understanding of leadership responsibilities and practices to mitigate Cyber risks and ensure business continuity and organisational resilience.

Testimonials from organisations & delegates

The course pulled together all the aspects of what is expected of the SIRO and more. It provided a sensible level of detail and depth to enable a SIRO to engage with a board and with technical teams with improved confidence.

The knowledge and experience of the course instructor was second to none. He was able to provide highly relevant personal insight across all the course content and to expand around all the course topics with real world examples.

Immensely informative, a real eye opener for some as to our current position and cannot fault the templar team at all for their hard work and commitment to us throughout the whole process.
