This executive education program, the first joint offering by the center and Tuck Executive Education, was designed for information security managers of Global 1000 companies and their direct reports.

Sponsored in part by Dartmouth's Institute for Security Technology Studies, the program was developed through the center's research and through its workshops with leading CISOs from Global 1000 firms.

The program set out to convey business concepts and skills that would help the information security professional to better understand how business leaders think, to appreciate organizational dynamics, to build an information security strategy, and to create a business case for security investments.
