Critical thinking and good decision-making, supported by structured analysis and evidence, are core practices of what makes a good information security professional. Whether you work in risk management, in compliance, in incident response, or in a red team, every day, your job consists of providing constructive security ideas and solutions to your team members and influencing them into implementing your recommendations. This course prepares you for achieving these skills.
The individuals who would benefit from this course are professionals who wish to develop critical-thinking and decision-making skills that go beyond using their intuition.
Mossé Cyber Security Institute teaches you, proven, structured analytics techniques, taken from the US Intelligence Community, and adapted by us into the corporate world. These techniques will help you make better cyber security decisions, and increase the likelihood of security solutions being championed by other teams because they have a stake in them. Theses are advantages and heavy-duty techniques to add to your toolbox.Outcomes:
You will learn to use structured critical-thinking techniques that will help you:
Anyone involved in cyber-security decision-making. That obviously includes information security professionals, but also to security-savvy business executives, senior managers and, any other staff members.Trainer(s):
We begin the course by defining what Structured Analytics Techniques (SATs) are, their purpose, and their history. We will present a high-level overview of other thinking approaches and explain why SATs are of high-value to you.
We proceed with presenting the different family groups of SATs and how they are linked to one another. You are taught the guidelines on when you should employ SATs, and how to select the right SATs for any given situation.Module 2: The Structured Analytics Techniques
In this module, we teach you the Structured Analytics Techniques that are most relevant to cyber security and the ones that are the easiest to employ in the corporate world. The main groups of SATs taught include:
In this module, you receive pre-prepared templates for selecting the right SATs depending on the problem, subject, or outcome you wish to resolve or accomplish. We also teach you how to create your own templates so that you may rapidly create new business processes, draft plans, and produce intelligence products.Module 4: Facilitating Critical-Thinking Sessions
In module 4, we teach you how to formally run critical-thinking sessions within your organization using SATs. What materials do you need? How can you run a session over the phone? What if, some of the people involved in making the decisions are unable to communicate with each other due to personality conflicts? How can you keep people engaged and interested?
We will answer all these questions, and many more.Module 5: Master Exercises
Finally, we conclude the course with half-a-day of exercises where you will practice using SATs to work on complex cyber security topics. We offer some pre-prepared topics for you to work on with other students as a group, and we also invite you to suggest topics of your own that you would like to work on during the class.
