Strategy in a Post-Pandemic World: Cognizant Security Strategy (CSS) Certificate Program

Security in a Post-Pandemic World

USF’s Strategy in a Post-Pandemic World: Cognizant Security Strategy (CSS) Certificate Program offers a fresh approach to the outdated security methods that are no longer useful to organizations in a post-pandemic world. Security departments have erroneously functioned in a reactionary – rather than proactive – role for decades.

This certificate will ensure your team does not act as spectators. It will help break your staff out of the mindset that they are solely operating in a responder role. At the same time, it will help leadership resist the temptation to micro-manage tactical situations rather than providing direction at the strategic level.

Much like a combat mission or intelligence operation, your security strategy needs to be organic. Decisions are based upon the fluidity of the threat environment and 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. The Strategy in a Post-Pandemic World: Cognizant Security Strategy (CSS) Certificate Program equips your company to incorporate that organic security strategy.
