What Is a Cybersecurity Manager?

Cybersecurity managers must ensure that the risk to information assets is minimised by implementing well designed security measures. They are responsible for staying abreast of the threat landscape to prevent (and design policy to respond to) malicious actors. They implement cybersecurity management frameworks and ensure that all employees and vendors operate within these frameworks. They advise and guide their business on national, EU and international laws for dealing with personal data, credit card information, health care data and other personally identifiable information. They have governance responsibilities ensuring cyber risks are identified and quantified according to well defined metrics and implement systems that mitigate these risks. Cybersecurity managers also need to have the digital skills in enterprise security architecture to work with teams in procuring and developing IT systems, the transversal skills to determine what risks/vulnerabilities/ attacks these systems identify/detect/prevent, the management skills to be capable of prioritising cybersecurity resources and will have leadership skills in working with diverse teams. In order to perform the role required learners will undertake a series of modules designed to develop these skills.
