Role-Based Cybersecurity Certifications
The Executive Level of the SBS Institute is geared at the top-level of your financial institution, namely the Board of Directors and the C-level executives. Certifications at the Executive level are meant to help your organization understand the high-level areas of risk, set the institution’s risk appetite, and ensure sound security practices are implemented and tested.
The Manager level of education is built around certification programs that help the institution manage and implement different aspects of your Information Security Program, as well as how to measure some of your ISP components and report findings upstream. Roles at the institution that the Manager level certifications would best suit include the ISO, IT Manager, Auditors, or Compliance, Security, or Operations Officers.
The Technical level is aimed at those that are responsible for implementing the technical, day-to-day risk-mitigating controls at your institution, such as managing and monitoring a firewall, managing mobile devices, performing a digital forensic investigation, or learning techniques that a hacker would use to break into the network so that you can build up your perimeter defenses. Roles that best fit the Technical level certifications include IT Managers, Network Administrators, and IT Specialists.
