In 2015, 81% of French companies suffered a cyber attack. High-risk applications are used every four minutes. Over the past three years, data leaks have increased by 400%. And 35% of cybersecurity incidents were caused unintentionally by company employees. How can you better prepare managers to prevent and manage the risks associated with cybercrime? Grenoble Ecole de Management and EPITA were approved to deliver a training program that prepares participants to pass the professional certification for the management of information security and risks (MSRI).

The program includes content such as anticipating risks and taking corrective measures to fix a security breach.

The training program will run until March 2018 in Paris. It will include 52 days of training spread out over seven months. Classes include expert input on cybersecurity and case studies. Applicants must have a master's degree or equivalent as well as a minimum of five years' work experience. TOIEC or equivalent proof of proficiency in English will also be requested.
