"Over my long career, I have experienced many courses from the perspective of a participant and a lecturer. I can honestly say the Certified Cyber Risk Officer stands as one of the best I have experienced. It is obvious the course has been developed by experts and has been designed primarily around the student, the content and the delivery. While the course is indeed intense, it is by no means overwhelming. Considering the subject matter, the ability to make the course easily digestible is a massive achievement and credit to the team involved. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to understand and demystify the cyber world in which we now operate."

"I thought this course would be too technical for me not being in IT, but it is very well paced. The learning materials are easy to follow and concise and the forum collaboration and support is great. The course ties in so many factors across the business from board level to teams that give you a really well rounded approach to cyber security and you can see each week how you can apply this in your everyday roles. Highly recommended!!"

This is an excellent course full of information and relevant material for any organization. I have recently completed a Masters in Cyber Security and I would say this CCRO course has been more practical and useful in my day to day role. I would safely say the Head Tutor Paul C Dwyer knows everything there is to know about managing Cyber Risk in todays business environment.
