University of Salford introduces post-graduate course for risk and security managers
09 July 2020
TO HELP companies deal with increased risks and uncertainties, the University of Salford – working in partnership with Security Exchange – has launched a new post-graduate pathway aimed at those who manage risk as part of their job.
Taught entirely online, the Risk and Security Management course will fit around a full-time or part-time role. The teaching draws on Salford Business School’s academic excellence and Security Exchange’s experience as a global crisis management consultancy.
The world has become a dangerous and unpredictable place. COVID-19, terrorism, Brexit and the rise of cyber crime have all added uncertainty to everyday life and this has a particular impact on business.
Looking at risks posed to business from a broad range of security threats, the course covers cyber security, information security and crisis management in a number of sectors including oil and gas, entertainment, aviation, food manufacturing and the media.
Dr Kevin Kane of the University of Salford’s Business School will lead the course. He explained: “As this course has been created with our industry partner Security Exchange, it will provide the skills and knowledge necessary for immediate use in the work environment.”
He continued: “In a world of heightened risk, organisations face increasing threats from data theft, sophisticated cyber attacks, global terrorism and the possibility of business disruption. There’s now a high demand for qualified and experienced security professionals to enhance operational resilience and protect individuals, assets, information, data and organisational reputation. This course aims to fill the skills gap that these new threats have created.”
The learning programme is highly practical and covers a wide range of topics using industry-specific Case Studies, contemporary and dynamic content and the tutors’ personal experiences to help develop knowledge, strategic understanding and practical skills.
Caroline Bashford, head of training and resources at Security Exchange, said: “If you’re looking to enhance your knowledge of the security industry, our new Risk and Security Management course offers essential learning. The threats faced by businesses change, but they don’t go away. It’s essential for the business sector to be as prepared as it can be in this uncertain world.”
