Security Analyst Program

Why the certification is relevant

This rise in the widespread use of technology brought with it a rise in security problems and cybercrime.

For hackers, the possibilities increased exponentially, along with the potential rewards. Cybercrime now permeates every facet of society and is for most organisations critically important. Independent of size or industry every business starts to take necessary precautions to protect their information systems and technology from unauthorised access, particularly if such access is made by individuals with malicious intent.

The Security Analyst Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by LEADing Practice and the Global University Alliance.

Focus of the Security Analyst

Advancing your career as a Security Analyst to take control of your enterprise’s security strategy, implementation, and testing is a good place to start.

In general, Security Analysts are tasked with identifying weaknesses in current security systems and developing solutions to close security vulnerabilities. To perform this task well, ideal candidates will have highly advanced technical skills, a proven ability to communicate with all levels of an organisation and experience applying both skillsets to solve real problems.

The Security Analyst certification program covers technology, systems and business analysis. It covers an analytical and modelling framework for integrating IT, technology platforms and infrastructure with strategy, innovation, value, requirements and complexity management.

The Security Analyst Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Security Analyst education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

The participant will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in both innovation and transformation projects.
