To help make your life easier, we have drafted an email capturing most of the information employers often request.

You can download it here.

What are my payment options?

Full payment — via credit card or bank transfer — must be received before the program start date. If you would like to arrange for a payment plan, please speak to your enrolment officer about available options. 

How long is the program?

The learning content is self-paced, and we have carefully designed it to fit your busy schedule. We, however, recommend completing the program within the standard six weeks to maximize the value of weekly collaborations with fellow participants. 

What happens if I am unable to complete the program in 8 weeks?

If, for any reason, you are unable to complete the program in the recommended six weeks, you can request a deferral at no extra cost. 

Alternatively, you can ask to be re-enrolled into the next class, should it suit you. 

If your employer has paid for your course, you may need to seek their approval first.

How do you deliver the program?

We have designed the Executive Cyber Resilience Program for busy professionals. All learning happens online so that you can watch the pre-recorded modules in your own time, at your own pace. That said, we encourage participants to do their best to keep up with the weekly lectures to maximize the value of group interactions. Modules are downloadable as video, audio, or transcript.

We host highly interactive Zoom calls where participants ask pressing questions, openly share career-defining mistakes and success stories in a safe environment. If you miss any of these calls, you can request a complete voice recording or transcript. 

If you have a question specific to Phil, Darren, or Jan at any stage over the eight-week program, you can contact them via WhatsApp or email. 

How many hours required per week?

Participants should devote an average of 20-40 minutes per week to earn their ECRP badge. 

We estimate participants to allocate their weekly time commitment as follows: 

1 hour to go through online lectures, and 1 hour to study and revise content. Additionally, there are two weeks where an extra hour should be allotted for Zoom calls. 

What time is the Zoom call?

Because of the global reach of our program, we have no pre-set times for our Zoom calls. Once the enrollment for a specific class is finalized, we organize the weekly Zoom calls, considering various time zones. 

How long will I have access to the videos/materials?

Upon completing the ECRP, you will have full access to the program content (online lectures and transcripts) for twelve months. Furthermore, you will retain full access to the Cyber Leadership Hub for 12 months — an online repository of hundreds of high-quality strategy toolkits, playbooks, frameworks, and more — giving you full ammunition to thrive in your cyber leadership role.

How long have you been running the course?

The three co-founders (with combined experience spanning more than 70 years) have been practicing and teaching these proven leadership principles for decades. That said, our first formal ECRP cohort graduated in August 2021. 

How will people know I’ve completed the program?

Once you have fulfilled the ECRP requirements, you will receive a Credly digital badge that you can use to showcase your solid grasp of cyber leadership essentials on LinkedIn or other platforms that matter to you. Credly, trusted by several large global brands, hosts the largest and most connected digital credential network.
