CYBERSECURITY: Measuring the Performance and Effectiveness of Critical Cybersecurity Controls


While many senior managers and board members are aware of the potential cyber threats and the risks they cause to their vital business information. Many businesses are struggling to clearly and simply present the state of an organisations cyber security posture and improvements made over time.

The Workshop

Serianu Limited, a Pan African based cybersecurity and business consulting firm is pleased to invite you to a 5 day training workshop that will enable participants to answer critical questions including: Are we spending an appropriate amount on securing our business and infrastructure? Is the investment going to the more critical areas of risk, and is it having the desired effect? Perhaps most critically, we lack a clear approach and methodology to answer the deceptively difficult question “How secure are we?”

Target Audience
  • IT and Information security professionals
  • Risk management and Audit officers
  • Legal and Compliance Officers
  • Finance and Strategy managers
