Program Overview

Cognizant Security Strategy (CSS) is a fresh approach to the antiquated security methods no longer useful to organizations in a post-pandemic world. Security departments have erroneously functioned in a reactionary – rather than proactive – role for decades. Much like a combat mission or intelligence operation, security strategy needs to be organic. Decisions are based upon the fluidity of the threat environment and the on-the-ground realities involved. As conditions change (whether that means an escalation or de-escalation of a crisis) the organization - and subsequent teams responsible - must dictate the pace and direction of the event. They cannot be spectators and they must break out of the mindset that they are solely operating in a responder role. At the same time, managers must resist the temptation to micro-manage tactical situations rather than providing direction from the strategic level. CSS is meant to help you quickly decipher your security posture and provide an actionable roadmap for how your organization makes decisions about security.

Cognizant Security Strategy (CSS) Certificate

Enhance your decision-making skills, build your credentials and learn that important difference between strategic and tactical thinking, as it relates to your organization’s security posture, as well as business in general. This highly interactive course utilizes lecture, case study and Q & A format to deliver the principles of Cognizant Security Strategy. Certification is granted through Security Management International and the University of South Florida Corporate Training and Professional Education Division.
