“Surviving Cyber: The Jumpstart Course”, is a self-study online education course that gives the owners and managers of small knowledge-based businesses the jumpstart they need to create their first Cyber Resilience Plan. It concentrates on the essential steps that are achievable in a relatively short period of time. This may be their first Cyber Resilience Plan, but it will not be their last.
This course comes from the lessons learned both in my years as a financial risk assessment expert and from my journey of discovery during the last 3 years. I hope that my personal experiences and professional background make me a suitable choice to guide small business owners in this hazardous environment.
Each session deals
with one topic and each topic builds on the previous one. Each Section includes
teaching, presented through a series of pre-recorded videos, a Poll to gather
your views, a Q&A feature, slide deck handouts, supporting PDF
handouts and Action Points to be taken.
All the content for each Section is held on Ruzuku, the Learning Management System. The course video material adds to approximately 3.75 hours of video content. All content is available on joining the course and the Sections can be completed on demand at your own pace.
Student support is available by email.
This course delivers a transformation in the way that business owners and managers think about cyber risk. You will:
The course material is organised into 4 on-demand sections covering:Section 1: Mindset
An email 'hotline' to submit questions to me if you have any issues with the course and to send feedback to me.
"Criteria for selecting an IT service provider for cyber risk services", a downloadable PDF checklist to help assess your IT Service Provider.
"Suggestions to reduce your exposures to popular Social Media platforms" a downloadable PDF with privacy and security settings advice.
If you decide to invest in the course, you receive the outlined benefits and the bonuses. 30 days from now, you could have completed your new learning, assuming that you complete one module per week, and have begun to implement your first Cyber Resilience Plan.
In doing so, you will significantly reduce your exposure to Technology risk and will have started to consider People risk and Governance risk. You will have moved away from worry and will feel empowered by the action you are taking and the progress you are making. You are now in control of this problem and have begun your journey to Cyber Resilience.
" What happens if I don't take this course? "
The likely answer is that nothing changes, except perhaps, the threat environment may worsen as cyber risk continues to evolve. You will have at least the same risk that a cyberattack could happen at any time and your worry may well increase until you decide to tackle the issue.
Cyber risk will remain on the "long finger" - to be dealt with another day. That approach may work but you are hoping that your business does not join the large number of small businesses that have already experienced the trauma of a cyber attack and not survived for very long afterwards. The problem with this approach is that hope is not a great strategy!
“Surviving Cyber: The Jumpstart Course” is available now to my “first-year” customers at a price of just € 242 (exclusive of Irish VAT where applicable). The price for UK companies is GBP £ 215 and no Irish VAT will apply. The course fee can be paid by credit card.
Naturally, there are alternative ways to address cyber risk and each carries a cost.
You could consider increasing your spending on technology products and services from your IT Service Provider in the hope that technology alone will address the issues. The cost of this option could be catastrophic if your IT Service Provider does not have the cybersecurity skills to deliver “what’s best for your business”.
You could also consider waiting until you are hacked without a Cyber Resilience Plan in place and risk losing your business and potentially, your livelihood. The financial cost of this outcome is catastrophic, not to mention the personal price of continuing to worry that one day your business will be a victim of a cyber-attack
