Course description

This new specialist Certificate, awarded by the IRM and 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 qualification provides an introduction to the concepts of digital risk management and explains how new technologies and digitalisation are disrupting businesses, changing the risk environment for organisations of all types and posing new ethical challenges. It explores how appropriate risk management tools and techniques can be applied, adapted and developed in the digital context and provides a detailed introduction to cyber security principles and practices.

In the video below, the IRM's Director of Corporate Relations, Carolyn Williams, introduces the new Digital Risk Management Certificate and answers some key questions about the qualification.
