Now for something completely different: I guess that the link between business and security is one of the big challenges of today. How can we make security more relevant for the business or coming from the other side, how can we enable the business to understand, what we do in security?
A few months ago, I was asked by gsem – Swiss American Graduate School of Business & Energy Management whether I would be willing to talk to students in a course they are offering to fill this gap. Together with the University at Albany they are offering a four week course giving business people, auditors and other not too-security-related roles insight into the subject and link them with people in the real world having to run security.
I guess that this is a very interesting approach and it will be even more interesting to see, how successful the program will be. If you are interested, this is the flyer and here would be .
BTW: I do not own any shares at gsem but think that this initiative is well worth supporting
