The International Compliance Association (ICA), a leading professional body for the global regulatory and financial crime compliance community, announced it has partnered with the International Cyber Threat Task Force (ICTTF) to offer a new program in cyber-risk management.

The new 8-week online program from the ICTTF, which is suitable for managers in either the first or second line of defense, covers a range of topics from identification of cyber-risks to risk management options. The course has been designed to equip professionals with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need in order to protect the digital assets of their organization and support the efforts of, or lead the implementation of, a cyber-risk framework. Professionals can now enroll in the “Certified Cyber Risk Officer” course, which commences June 4, 2020.

“We know that our members are contending with many new challenges right now, and managing the increasing risk of cyber-crime while so many employees are working from home is one of these challenges,” said ICA President Bill Howarth in a press release. “We’re delighted to be working with the ICTTF to offer this highly practical online course that will equip compliance professionals with the tools and skills they need to work collaboratively with other parts of the business to manage cyber-risk more effectively.”

The International Compliance Association is a sister company to Compliance Week. Both organizations are under the umbrella of Wilmington plc.
