Due to the impact of the SolarWinds cyberattack and its direct impact to executive leadership teams, our firm has decided to reduce the price of our Hacking The Cyber Threat Cybersecurity Leadership Program to $999.00 ($3500). This price reduction will allow private and public sector executive teams the flexibility to purchase additional training for their organization’s leadership teams. Thank You!

Today's Most Significant Threat

There are more cybersecurity attacks, incidents and data breaches today than ever. The magnitude of impact resulting from a breach is significant in a variety of ways. There is an underlying fear and hope by some of today's executives that it won't happen to their respective organization.

There is an accompanying problem that compounds the one just described. We have a shortage of cyber-savvy executives and business leaders. Why?

  • Historically, executives have seen cybersecurity as an "IT issue" not a strategic enterprise risk and executive leadership issue
  • Fear and lack of understanding of the technology, terminology and acronyms associated with cybersecurity
  • Lack of desire to learn a challenging, new skill that's not only required in today's world but complex and constantly changing
  • The cost and time commitment required for cybersecurity training and certifications.
