Cyber Security Overview for Managers is designed for managers and other stakeholders who may be involved in decision making regarding their cyber environment but do not have a strong technical background. Discussions will not focus on specific technologies or implementation techniques, but rather cyber security methodologies and the framework for providing a resilient cyber presence. The course aims to help managers better understand how people and devices work together to protect mission critical assets and more effectively evaluate their cyber posture.

  • Why should you take this Course ?

    Awareness programs provide a great way to educate personnel and keep the company’s IT security policy fresh in their minds. The idea behind a campaign is to motivate people to take information security seriously and respond accordingly, as Steve Durbin, a managing director of the Information Security Forum (ISF) emphasized in a CIO post. Any technical defense measure would be useless if the entire staff is not cyber-aware; a good security program has everybody involved by staying current with new technologies and understanding the common types of threats or attacks that can affect business operations.

  • Why security awareness is important for managers?

    Is security awareness only for employees? Certainly not. Experts agree it is time for managers to move into a more active role when it comes to IT security. Nowadays, managers are required to be technologists in addition to business leaders, with the ability to address security concerns as well as manage somewhat complex technologies.

  • How often should I back up my data?

    It depends on how critical that data is. If it's important that your data be accurate and available (to you or others), you should consider backing it up often. For example, you may want to back up critical project data at the end of each day or week.

  • What is an IT device?

    An IT device is any device that is used to access, process, store, or transmit University information and that uses the University's IT infrastructure, including the University network. Examples of IT devices include desktop computers, laptop computers, smartphones, tablets, network devices, and printers.

  • What is information security?

    Information security is the practice of protecting information and information systems from unauthorized disclosure, modification, and destruction. It encompasses the security of all IT resources, including both University information and the IT devices that access, process, store, or transmit it

  • What is confidentiality?

    Confidentiality is the preservation of authorized restrictions on University information access and disclosure, including means for protecting personal privacy and proprietary information.

    Confidentiality has to do with the privacy of information, including authorizations to view, share, and use it. Information with low confidentiality concerns may be considered "public" or otherwise not threatening if exposed beyond its intended audience. Information with high confidentiality concerns is considered secret and must be kept confidential to prevent identity theft, compromise of accounts and systems, legal or reputational damage, and other severe consequences.

Security Awareness for Manager

IT-Parofessional Image

Developed for managers and those who supervise employees, this course will introduce concepts and techniques that will help managers in developing their staff into a security-savvy workforce, capable of defending against attacks from cybercriminals and other threat actors. This course is centered around a multi-point plan that when followed, will guide managers through the successful implementation of an effective security awareness program.

"Our Managers are too busy to be involved in our cyber security awareness and training program." We hear this statement a lot from our customers every day. This course provides practical, to-the-point training for the busy managers, in everyday language, complete with examples that are easy to understand.

Why Security Awareness is Important for Managers?

Security awareness shouldn’t be limited to just staff only. Managers, executives and even owners should be a part of the security campaign. As a matter of fact, having credentials from executives, managers are far more valuable to a hacker because of the level of access given to them. Managers can also be promoters for security and protection of assets.


Since managers understand their team, they are beneficial for their organization of the program. Managers can identify employee weaknesses in security education and address the issue with additional training. They can also organize groups and schedule the right training among teams.


The result of manager training leads to positive impact on security for the organization.

Managers are a Group That is Most at Risk

IT-Parofessional Image

Managers have more access to sensitive data and systems, making it paramount that they are educated about the risks of handling this information. We have seen countless phishing attacks that target on the highest levels of executives, managers and ignoring these staff in training could be a costly oversight and loophole in your end user security plan.

Health and safety are critical parts of a risk manager’s role. They actively seek out problem areas in the organization and look to address them. They use data analysis to identify loss and injury trends and implement strategies to prevent them from reoccurring.. This clearly benefits employees in physical work environments, such as construction, but can also help office employees and those in similar positions through methods such as ergonomics. A safer workplace is better for everyone and is dramatically impacted by risk management.

They're Setting a Good Example for Staff

When Managers take training, they're ensuring their department takes training more seriously. For the laggards in their department not completing training, having the head of the department ahead of them is a convincing argument for them to complete their assignments. Even better, it's a great step in creating a culture of more secure behavior.

Anyone not participating in the new security measures constitutes a possible weak link. If everyone isn’t fully engaged, it’s all for nothing. This particular practice also assumes that all departments (e.g., HR, Legal, Security) must buy-in and help make it a reality.

Security awareness shouldn’t be limited to just staff. Managers, executives and even owners should be a part of the campaign. As a matter of fact, having credentials from executives is far more valuable to a hacker because of the level of access given to them. Managers can also be promoters for security and protection of assets.
