Cybersecurity Executive Program

The rapid evolution of digital technology has inevitably crept into every industry, academia, and governmental institutions, demonstrating a need for cybersecurity knowledge at every level of an organization. The Cybersecurity Executive Program is the first program of its kind to address the need for cybersecurity education for non-cyber executives. Developed in collaboration with the San Diego Law Enforcement Coordination Center (SD-LECC), City of San Diego Office of Homeland Security (OHS), the San Diego FBI Field Office, and InfraGard San Diego, and launched in 2017, the program’s curriculum ensures that non-cyber executives have a sufficient understanding of cybersecurity to make well-informed decisions in their fields. Each program runs for six consecutive Friday mornings from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. For more information about this program and possible future dates, please contact us at cybercenter@sandiego.edu
