The Emergence of Cyber Risk
What was once solely an IT issue, cyber risk management now impacts the entire lifecycle
of an organization. Large consumer breaches and political investigations have put
cybersecurity in the forefront of the general public. Increasing digital operations
have added pressure for executive teams to effectively navigate and protect their
companies and consumers from cybersecurity breaches. Unlike many free training options,
the Butler Executive Education and San José State University Cyber Risk Management
Certificate is highly tailored to the needs and busy schedules of today’s professionals.
This certificate provides a concise, self-paced overview of current cyber risk management
trends, tools, and techniques – and how to easily apply them within any organization.

Managing Cyber Risk Organizationally
Adopting a cyber risk management approach changes the role of cybersecurity from “gatekeeper” to “business enabler.” But to be successful, cyber risk management requires buy-in and participation at all levels of the organization – from IT and security staff to managers and C-suite. Financially, cyber risk management enables efficient allocation of cybersecurity dollars by focusing security efforts on the resources and goals the organization values most. This prioritization provides the greatest per dollar reduction in the organization’s cyber exposure - the biggest “bang” for the organization’s cybersecurity “buck.”
