Cyber Security Risk Specialist Course starting 20 July - Online Delivery

The Cybersecurity Risk Specialist course provides you with a comprehensive understanding of cyber security risk management. It has been designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence you require to protect the digital assets of your organisation and to support or lead the implementation of a cyber risk framework.

The CCRS (Certified Cyber Risk Specialist) course and certification is completely aligned with the CCRO (Certified Cyber Risk Officer) syllabus. The main difference is in relation to the format. There are no live ILT (Instructor Led Training) sessions or assignments on the CCRS course. Students learn at their own pace over a 90 day period and complete online exams at the end of each module.
