CSI announces ICTTF partnership

 In News

Crime Stoppers International (CSI) has announced a new partnership with the International Cyber Threat Task Force (ICTTF). 

In partnership with ICTTF, CSI has launched an opportunity to study with Paul C Dwyer – one of the world’s foremost experts in cyber, security, risk and privacy. Successful completion of the course will see attendees awarded the title of Certified Cyber Risk Specialist, as recognised by the International Compliance Association.  

CSI Board Member and recent graduate of the course, Dr Vince Hughes noted that cybercrime is one of the key issues causing company directors and business managers to lose sleep, and this course is ideal because it has been specially developed for those without extensive cyber knowledge. 

It is aimed at equipping everyone from the boardroom to non-technical executives and managers with an understanding of the cyber risk management needed in our digital, online worldResponsibility for cybersecurity no longer sits just within an organisation’s IT department”, said Dr Hughes. 

ICTTF President, Paul Dwyer agreed and added“The answer to the cyber challenge is leadership and business leaders need to be informed. Measuring and managing cyber risk is now an intrinsic part of most people’s roles.  ICTTF is really pleased to be working with CSI on this initiative.
