CyberSecurity: visions and future professions
We are careful in intercepting emerging needs from the workplace.
We think it is necessary to create a learning ecosystem capable of enhancing the transfer of know-how and continuous dialogue between students, universities and companies.

Today technology permeates every aspect of our lives, radically changing the way companies and PAs carry out their activities and triggering a growing attention to the risks connected to them.

These phenomena have a strong impact on corporate strategies that must be rethought and acted by professionals capable of ensuring and managing the security of data and systems in the round, predicting in advance impacts and consequences of the choices made and of the behaviors implemented. New professions, new visions, new skills and new abilities that go beyond technical-computer skills and enter the sphere of behavior.
We intercepted the signs of our vision in the Master of Science in Cyber Risk Strategy and Governance jointly launched by Bocconi University and the Polytechnic of Milan, which combines managerial vision and scientific rigor.
Our partnership with the two Milanese universities wants to contribute to building a learning ecosystem capable of enhancing the transfer of know-how and collective intelligence and also of involving, motivating and promoting dialogue and continuous discussion between students, universities and business experiences.
"... the program has a threefold soul that combines technical information and analytical methods with social sciences such as management, economics, law, ethics and soft skills, [...] because companies are not enough good technicians, but they want professionals capable of negotiate, skilled in speaking and making themselves understood ”.
