TORONTO APRIL 14, 2018

ORION is bringing one of the most well-regarded cybersecurity leadership training programs to Toronto on April 30-May 1 in conjunction with their 2018 THINK conference (http://www.thinkconference.ca/). CCISO (https://ciso.eccouncil.org/cciso-certification/) is an ANSI 17024-accredited training and certification program which is the first program of its kind, aimed at producing top-level information security executives. The CCISO workshop focuses on the application of information security management (https://iclass.eccouncil.org/our-courses/certified-chief-information-security-officer-cciso/) principles from an executive management point of view. The program was developed by sitting CISOs for current and aspiring CISOs. The training focuses on governance, project management, strategic planning, and finance – areas not covered by more technically-focused certification and training programs.

According to a recent report from Cybersecurity Ventures, cybercrime will cost the world more than $6 trillion annually by 2021. The demand for cybersecurity experts is expected to rise to 6 million globally by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million, cybersecurity personnel has become one of the most sought-after resources in which organizations are now looking to invest. Danish Arshad, the Executive Director of EC-Council said, “Canada is seeing a massive paradigm shift towards the issue of cybersecurity and for the first time in 2018 both the Federal government as well as private companies are taking very strong measures to bring the cybersecurity maturity of Canadian enterprises and institutions on par with other developed countries.” ORION’s CCISO workshop will help current and prospective cybersecurity leaders learn critical skills and to help build a strong cybersecurity posture, strategy, and infrastructure for their respective organizations.

“ORION has listened to our constituents and they’ve told us that security training is a top priority,” says Alfonso Licata, President, and CEO of ORION. “We’re committed to helping Ontario’s research, education and innovation community maintain the security of their important assets. Everyone should have access to the best training available – so we’ve partnered to bring it to their own backyard. The more than 2 million students, researchers, educators and other innovators that we support across the province deserve it.”

The CCISO training program includes case studies and examples of real-world situations CISOs face in their daily jobs. Participants will be challenged to develop a business continuity plan for an organization in a particular situation, use metrics to communicate cyber risk to different audiences, and describe how to align a security program with the goals of the organization.
