Cybersecurity Fundamentals for Finance and Accounting Professionals Certificate - IL

Develop your fluency in cybersecurity.

According to CSO, an online resource dedicated to security and risk management, cybercrime damage costs are expected to hit $6 trillion annually by 2021 and cybersecurity spending will exceed $1 trillion from 2017 to 2021.

Organizations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that they are managing threats, and that they have effective processes and controls in place to detect, respond to, mitigate and recover from cybersecurity events.

Cyber-attacks can:

  • Disrupt businesses
  • Result in financial losses
  • Destroy an organization's reputation
