Cyber Risk Professional Certification

Executive Education Certificate Programs

Cyber Risk affects our businesses, our economy, our healthcare, our critical infrastructure, our workforce, our social system and even our political system. Many of the world’s top CEOs identify cybersecurity as one of their biggest challenges, and in 2017 Forbes magazine announced one million job openings in cybersecurity on the business side (not just in IT).

To address this accelerating problem, an interdisciplinary team of CISOs, executives, and business thought leaders at Pepperdine Graziadio are providing a Cyber Risk Professional (CyRP) Certification.

CyRP is designed for business professionals and leaders regardless of technical background or the business verticals they work. Business leaders with this certification will be prepared to identify, evaluate, prepare for, and mitigate cyber security risk. CyRP is designed and taught by the same faculty who teach in the globally recognized Pepperdine Executive MBA program as well as CISOs from companies in Silicon Valley and professionals engaged in addressing cybersecurity across the US.
