I am pleased to announce our collaboration with Boise State University College of Engineering Cyber Operations and Resilience (CORe) Program to develop the Cybersecurity Risk Quantification course. CORe has been rated a 2023 top cybersecurity program by Forbes Magazine
A special thanks to Sin Ming Loo, Ph.D. Program Director for agreeing to open this course up to cyber professionals and offering continuing education units. Thank you!
I believe this is the first course of its kind being offered to undergraduates, graduates, and cyber professionals.
This is not a lecture series; it's a hands-on skills development course. Students will be involved in every aspect of cybersecurity risk quantification.
This course is based on my years of experience providing cybersecurity risk quantification services for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC). It also includes a complete set of models and proven methods that are easy to understand and use. In fact, no prior experience is required. With these models, you can complete basic and advanced analyses.
Open Education Resource
In conjunction with this course, I'll be releasing the Cybersecurity Risk Quantification Textbook as an Open Education Resource. That means that educators from around the world will have free access to use this course pack and teach using the same material. We hope this provides a standard level of education for effective methods of quantifying cybersecurity risk.
The CyberRiskModel Educational Bundle is a complete set of tools and models that are also being made freely available as an Open Education Resource. To learn more, go to the Educators menu option.
When you're ready to progress beyond the course, we offer implementation workshops and custom model development.
Quantifying cybersecurity risk shouldn't be difficult. It should be the norm for describing and communicating risk.
Join us by spreading the word.
