This uniquely positions security teams to not only protect the business, but more importantly, to help shape the business.

We compiled insights from our National Advisory Board comprised of industry-leading information security officers, survey results from over 3000 executives, and content detail from over 100 focus groups to design and make available the CCI Cybersecurity Leadership Academy. This 12-week fully facilitated online leadership program is like none other you have experienced.
