Introduction 

Cybersecurity threats are no longer confined to companies in information and communications technology sector. More Singapore companies across sectors are also adopting cloud storage and cloud data threats are getting more prevalent. To empower more Singapore companies, especially SMEs, to handle cybersecurity threats more effectively, Singapore Business Federation (SBF) is partnering Strategic Technology Management Institute (NUS)  to raise companies’ cybersecurity capabilities quickly, to ensure they are resilient to ride on business opportunities quickly. 

The cyber threat landscape is ever evolving and cyber security needs to be considered as a continuous effort to enable better protection, detection and mitigation of attacks. This course introduces companies’ management (with no technical background) to the concepts and terminologies in cyber security. It also brings these decision makers up-to-date on the latest cyber threat landscape, and enables them to better understand and appreciate cyber security.

The course also covers the recent attacks and threats, as well as explanation on each of their mechanics in layman’s term for the participants to acquire a deeper understanding and knowledge on what goes on under the hood. The aim is to enable Singapore companies, especially SMEs to be better prepared and more resilient against cyber threats and attacks.
