TechDogs-"Diligent Institute Launches Cyber Risk & Strategy Certification for Corporate Directors and Executives"
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Diligent Institute, the global corporate governance research arm and think tank of Diligent, today announced the launch of its premier Cyber Risk & Strategy Certification. The program builds on the company’s existing Climate Leadership and ESG Leadership certifications, and comes in response to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) proposed rules which require board members to participate more closely in cybersecurity oversight.

“The cyber regulation landscape is rapidly expanding, and more is being demanded from board members as cybersecurity evolves from an IT risk to an enterprise risk,” said Dottie Schindlinger, Executive Director of the Diligent Institute. “With U.S. proxy season around the corner, now is the time for directors to enhance their knowledge of cybersecurity risk. We hope this program provides leaders with the skills and confidence to better respond to cybersecurity challenges.”

The self-paced e-learning experience includes access to an exclusive curriculum developed in collaboration with experienced cyber professionals including attorney Sandy Garfinkel, Co-chair of the Privacy & Data Security Group at McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC, Masha Sedova, Co-founder & President of Elevate Security, and more.

The certification gives directors and executives access to the cyber experts they want to hear from most, with content curated to the necessary depth and breadth directors need, all at a manageable and self-paced schedule.

Courses will be available on March 1, 2023 and registration is open now. The registration fee is $3,500 per person, however, registrants can access early bird pricing at 50% off until February 1, 2023. Learn more on our website.
