The Institute of Risk Management has opened enrolments for its new certificate in digital risk management.

This specialist certificate, developed with support from the WMG Cyber Security Centre at the University of Warwick, and the University's Department of Politics and International Studies, has been designed to equip individuals to apply and develop their skills in an 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 examines the ethical issues surrounding both privacy and machine learning.

The qualification is launching at an introductory price of £995 ($1,260). It can be taken on a standalone basis and will involve approximately 180 hours of study time. 

The IRM is holding a free introductory webinar on the 10 December at 11.00 GMT where experts working in risk management will discuss how to protect your organisation in a digital world and more information on the certificate.

Tom Sorell, professor of politics and philosophy at the University of Warwick, who contributed to the development of the study guide and syllabus, said:

“The course will introduce learners to digital as a disruptive force both in products and services, as well as offering clear explanations around cybersecurity risks in business or the public sector.

“It is designed to develop a clear understanding of digital products and risks, and the tools and techniques which can help businesses stay protected.”
