Cybersecurity for Executives Professional Development Program

Cybersecurity for Executives, offered by Professional & Continuing Education at Chico State, in partnership with Zschool, was created to address the growing concern of cybercrime. Cybersecurity is no longer solely the realm of the Chief Information Officer. Protecting your company’s information requires executive commitment and that of other non-technical departments. Today’s executives need to be knowledgeable about the language and framework of cybersecurity. Whether you attend our four-day, on-site immersion program or participate in the online program, you will learn from our cybersecurity faculty made up of experts, innovators, and regulators. They will show you how to address cybersecurity from a business point of view and develop a culture of cybersecurity at your organization.
