In-Company Course "Design of scenarios in security and cybersecurity" and document on Best Practices

  • Starting 2019, among its course offering, ARPEL provides a new in-company training designed to present and discuss the scenario analysis technique applied to security and cybersecurity as a new capacity in the challenge to anticipate emerging threats and risks.

    The topics addressed in the course include: characterization of the current scenario: volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous; understanding the digital risk; characterization of the cyber risk; analysis of some cyberattacks and their context; conceptual and methodological foundations of security and cybersecurity; basic theory of planning by scenarios; modeling scenarios in security and cybersecurity, and practical application of design of scenarios in security and cybersecurity.

    Meanwhile, the document "I3 Model. Attracting the interest of the board of directors in cybersecurity” may be downloaded from the ARPEL web page.

    This report, written by Jeimy Cano, introduces the model I3 (Imaginarios, Interrogantes e Inmersión) to develop some strategies that attract the executives of organizations regarding the challenges of cybersecurity, and how to articulate their decisions to motivate a business transformation in the face of the challenge of a digitally modified world.

    "In an asymmetric scenario of information and with constant changes at the political, economic, social, technological and regulatory level, organizations are in a state of continual tension to face the discontinuities caused by new proposals from emerging players in different sectors. In this context of uncertainty and instability, and the increase in information flows between the different players in the supply chain and trusted third parties that articulate the dynamics of their business, the challenges of cybersecurity are evident now in business relations that are enabled through technological convergence and digital ecosystems."

    The document states, "Business cybersecurity as emerging organizational capacity establishes an unprecedented point of reference for corporations since, as long as they understand they are part of a digital business ecosystem, they can identify not only how they can be affected by third parties, but also how they can impact with their activities and actions on the members of this ecosystem (Hogg, 2017). As a result, executives must not only be clear on how to protect their interests and corporate assets, but on how to consider the dynamics of information flows with their peers and trusted third parties."

    This course has a duration of 8 hours (8:00 to 12:00 and 13:00 to 17:00), and is designed for a maximum of 20 participants per course.
