AI and Digital Security

As our world, and with it business, becomes more digitized, so too increases the risk for organizations. Cybercrime and cyberattacks are in the news daily, and many companies are vulnerable. But is this strictly an IT problem or do we need to look at a broader range of issues and measures?

Our Module AI and Digital Security teaches you how you can prepare your organization for cyberattacks and the role Artificial Intelligence can play in this, as well as looking into the possibilities of using AI in growing your business.

What will you get out of it?

  • Knowledge about cyberattacks; crime, espionage or theft of funds or intellectual property.
  • Insight in the measures you need to take against cyberattacks on the one hand, and safe innovation on the other.
  • A strong foundation on current crises and compliance management theories and concepts.
  • Insight in Artificial Intelligence and how it can help you counter cyberattacks as well as realize new possibilities for your organization.
  • Intense discussion sessions with your peers and our experts train you to take a viewpoint and defend it, honing your understanding of the topic.
  • A paper in which you show how you have applied what you have learned during the module in your business case.
  • A certificate that proves you have successfully completed the module.
  • Content incorporates your work practice and you meet experts from the field
  • Developing by learning from each other
  • Create your very own MBA and determine your own pace

What will you be doing?
