About

The Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) in any given organization serves a leadership position, protecting the data and digital systems that a company’s employees as well as its customers depend upon.

This Cybersecurity - The CISO's View Certificate, as part of the Essentials of Cybersecurity Professional Certificate from EdX in partnership with University of Washington - UWashingtonX, delves into the role that the CISO plays in cybersecurity operations.

Throughout the lessons, learners will explore answers to the following questions: How does cybersecurity work across industries? What is the professionals' point of view? How do we keep information secure?

Coursework will fully explore the CISO’s view from the top, as well as the position’s toolkit, which includes policy, procedures and practices, technologies, awareness training, and audit. It will also dive into the approaches taken in private industry, government, academia, and the military.
