This training is taught in English.
Continuous assessment of threats and vulnerabilities is a common practice in a security programme. As a CISO, you will set up, manage and measure the threat and vulnerability process. In this module, we will explain the basics of the threat and vulnerability management.
We start with the common ways how security events are identified and logged. Tools such as SIEM (Security Incident and Event Management) will help you to capture and correlate logs. SOC (Security Operating Center) is used to monitor alle the events and correlations, in order to be able to respond as soon as new events are detected. We will discuss frameworks such as MITRE Att@ck, a knowledge base and model that reflects the various phases of an attack lifecycle. It documents attacker tactics and techniques based on real-world observations.
During this module, we will discuss different types of hacking. To start with, we will learn you the in and outs of white board hacking (aka Threat Modelling). Next, you will learn how Penetration Testing by ethical hackers fits into the threat and vulnerability management programme. We will discuss what kinds of penetration tests you can set up, such as blue, red and purple teams. We will also discuss the insider threat, as employees sometimes are the first “hackers” you will be confronted with.
In the last section of this course we will focus on vulnerability and patch management. In order to prevent you from threats, the management of vulnerabilities is crucial. A well defined and properly managed management of vulnerabilities increases your security resilience.

Educational approach of this course
When it comes to establishing and running a proper Security Governance Programme, there are a variety of approaches. A one-size-fits-all formula doesn’t apply.
And it’s for that reason that this course has a two-fold objective. It aims to introduce you to the current standards and frameworks available and to supply you with the practical skills required to apply them correctly within your organisation.
To accomplish this, we’ve lined up highly skilled professionals who have been in the trenches for years. They share practical advice and workarounds and teach you the core of what you need to know. The course itself blends theoretical models, frameworks, and standards to give you an overview of what’s out there, combined with practical exercises for applying what you’ve learnt in real-life situations.
You’ll be awarded a certificate of completion at the end of the course. This module does not entail any exams or official certification.
Note: Have you got plans to pursue the entire ‘Certified CISO’ programme? In that case, you’ll need a certificate of completion for all modules, and they must have been obtained within the past two years. The first six modules must be completed to start the 7th and final module, the ‘Master Project’, where you will apply the content of the previous modules to a single integrated project. Once finished, and if you obtain a positive evaluation, you’ll be awarded the ‘Certified CISO’ certificate.
Your bonus training package includes:
- Training material (printed and PDF format): handouts of the presentations with notes
- A list of useful links with additional information on standards and frameworks discussed during class
- The exercises and their solutions (where applicable)
How to prepare yourself
This is a classroom-based, non-technical course. Bring something along (e.g., a laptop, notebook, tablet) to take additional notes.
- A basic understanding of IT
- Some experience in a corporate environment as a manager could be beneficial but is not essential.
