Enrolments now open for IRM’s all-new Digital Risk Management Certificate

Enrolments are now open for the Institute of Risk Management’s (IRM) new Digital Risk Management Certificate. Awarded by the IRM and developed in tandem with support from the WMG Cyber Security Centre at the University of Warwick in addition to the same university’s Department of Politics and International Studies, this qualification has been deliberately designed to equip individuals to apply and develop their skills in what is nowan increasingly digital world.

The course covers how to carry out digital risk assessments, provides a detailed grounding in cyber security principles and practices and also looks at the ethical issues surrounding both privacy and machine learning. The qualification launches at an introductory price of £995.

Carolyn Williams (director of corporate relations at the IRM) explains more in this YouTube video.

The IRM will be holding a free introductory webinar on Monday 10 December at 11.00 am during which there will be a panel discussion involving several risk management experts. They’ll outline how to protect your organisation in a digital world and offer more information on the new Digital Risk Management Certificate.

Speakers on the day will include Stephen Treece CFIRM (head of corporate risk at NHS Digital), Steve O’Neill (from the Credit Risk Skills and Risk Academy at Barclays) and Alexander Larsen CFIRM (president of Baldwin Global Risk Services Ltd).
