OSP Cyber Academy are offering their next One-Day Cyber Risk & Resilience Board & Executive Awareness Course with a 25% discount for ScotlandIS members.

For board members including Non-Executive Directors and Executive Managers who need to provide governance and implement strategy for cyber risk, including data protection and resilience, this course aims to provide delegates with the opportunity to explore and discuss cyber risk and resilience and how to provide effective governance, risk management and strategic implementation.

The course objectives are to provide better:

  • Understanding of the business issue and context of cyber risk & resilience;
  • Understanding of how to structure cyber risk & resilience strategy, governance, risk management and capability;
  • Understanding of cyber risk & resilience governance, risk management paradoxes, decision-making and questions to ask


Part 1 The Business Issue “What is going on here?” Addressing the core strategy question of not just deciding what to do, but the more fundamental issue of comprehending the situation; and why resilience is an imperative. This will include hard trends (will happen) of opportunities and dangers and the associated paradoxes, VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) regulatory, legal and geo-political environment in the UK, USA and internationally.

Part 2 The Value of Information A short exercise to consider the value of information for business, therefore what needs to be enabled and protected by resilience.

Part 3 “Making it Real” A simple scenario exercise, to consider a technology based business investment for a new business service, to consider the risk and return on

investment, before stepping through a a simple breach of that service and whether that changes delegates understanding of the risk?

Part 4 Strategy and Capability Development An approach based upon UK NCSC Capability Assessment Framework (CAF) and US NIST Cyber Security Framework (CSF),

including the use of scenario testing to understand and manage risk.

Part 5 Next Steps Discussion and a simple set of leading questions for boards to ask of themselves and their organisations.

The next course is being delivered virtually on Tuesday 7th July – find out more here.
