The global cybersecurity landscape is expanding and changing rapidly. Organizations large and small are facing heightened risk as traditional security methods give way to the emergence of real-time identity authentication methods. Accenture polling indicates that 68% of business leaders feel their cybersecurity risks are increasing. However, the low level of existing protection maybe even more concerning—on average, only 5% of companies are properly protected (Varonis). Leverage data science to increase cybersecurity.
A key element in the cybersecurity toolbox is the strategic understanding of the role of data science in increasing cybersecurity resiliency at an enterprise level. Leaders can harness data science methods to manage cyber risk to improve and in some cases create new control capabilities to achieve cybersecurity resilience.
This program will provide you with:
The cybersecurity market is expected to be worth $352.25 billion by 2026, growing 14.5% annually.
On average, only 5% of companies' folders are properly protected.
Cybercrimes cost the world nearly $600 billion each year, equivalent to 0.8% of the global GDP.
This course was designed to provide cybersecurity and data science professionals with a strategic understanding of how data science can be used to manage cyber risk, positioning them for career progression as cybersecurity specialists.
In this program, you will examine the unique role of machine learning and data science in creating effective cybersecurity environments. You will also learn how these disciplines combine to increase an organization's cybersecurity resiliency and explore the changing landscape of cybersecurity as advanced authentication choices become more prevalent.
