Driving digital strategy is gaining momentum; it is certainly a ‘hype’ term for most reputable business schools and their students. That is why, for the 3d year in a row, we are opening the international EMBA Kingston/RANEPA programme with the topic “Big Data and Business Analytics”. Big Data, along with AI, UX, Data Science, cybersecurity, is currently at the top of world rankings of the key competencies of today’s and future business leaders.
It is but natural that during the October-2020 study module of the EMBA programme we invited guest speakers from kaspersky: Andrey Suvorov (General Director of ‘Aprotech’) and his colleagues with a master class on the topic “Cyber security for managers”. Such master classes with top-notch local experts that add to the British modules of the programme are a good tradition and the hallmark of our international programmes.
In addition to the interactive lecture with real business cases, useful "features", lots of new information, kaspersky offered a game simulation on the basics of cyber security. EMBA students had an opportunity to assess their level of cyber security literacy as acting heads of departments and companies via real-life cases: working with PCs and mobile devices, managing their personal accounts, e-mails, working with third-party websites, social networks and messengers.
Many thanks to the kaspersky team for such useful and relevant content, we look forward to continuing our cooperation in the form of a customized course on information security!
