Cyber security is fundamental for the smooth functioning of the organization’s core processes and it is increasingly essential for future innovations and data-driven business models. But how do you use cyber security as a strategic tool for enabling strategy execution and achieving business goals? In this masterclass you will receive scientific insights and practical approaches for developing and actually implementing cyber security as a business enabler.

You gain insights into the important challenges of making and executing the right strategic decisions in a rapidly changing world. We discuss how to bridge the gap between the business, IT and cyber security. How do you get visibility into the risks and vulnerabilities of your organization?

How do these relate to your strategic goals? How do you choose the right focus, so that you realize the strategy without overload in the organization, with the optimal balance between short and long term. Summarized, we take the participants through the “what and how” of strategy execution in the context of cyber security.
