As featured on...

The Cyber Strategy and Transformation Program was developed by cyber industry leaders for business and technology executives who have responsibility for leading cybersecurity and resilience strategies across their organizations.

The program is delivered by the team of CISOs and senior cyber-resilience executives who developed it. Each are industry leaders with experience helping executives and board members of leading global enterprises rapidly develop high-impact cyber-resilience skills and programs.

You’ll receive state-of-the-art practical guidance and coaching from them to rapidly advance your ability to create high-impact strategies that quickly deliver resilience to cyberattacks.

When faced with the challenge of developing your cybersecurity strategy and selling it to stakeholders, you generally have two choices.

You can educate yourself or someone else on your team. The trouble is, there are many cybersecurity courses and certifications, but they can be too academic, overly technical, or simply not very valuable.

Alternately, can appoint cybersecurity consultants to develop the strategy for you, but it’s a costly step and the time required for them to develop the roadmap can’t deliver the risk reduction you need quickly enough. 

The Cyber Strategy and Transformation Program offers all of these unique benefits:

  • An intensive 8-week online program delivered by a team of CISOs and senior cyber-resilience executives
  • Created specifically to empower business leaders with the skills and tools they need to mature their cyber resilience frameworks rapidly
  • Presents practical strategies to accelerate cyber resilience
  • Enables compliance with tightening data-protection regulations and meet rising customer expectations for security Offers 
  • Provides ongoing access to expert mentorship and support
  • Includes Premium Membership in the Cyber Leadership Hub

The Cyber Strategy and Transformation Program is the transformational learning model the industry needs 

Unlike the usual academic program, it combines practical cyber resilience education by industry leaders, expert mentorship, and membership in a highly engaged community of business leaders who support one another, share and co-create methods and toolsets.

Designed specifically for executives driving cybersecurity and resilience strategies

  • CISOs who would like to manage cyber resilience more holistically
  • Technical cyber security professionals who want to take a leadership role in driving cyber-resilience strategy
  • Small business owners facing significant cyber risk
  • Startup founders who need to demonstrate to their stakeholders and customers that they’re effectively managing cyber risk
  • Cybersecurity consultants who want to increase the value they deliver to clients

A comprehensive step-by-step program

You’ll learn the real-world skills to:

  • Assess your cyber risks and capabilities, so you can rapidly develop a cyber-resilience strategy with strong foundations.
  • Mature your cyber resilience, using the right KPIs and metrics to track your progress.
  • Manage cyber risks in a measurable and predictable way
  • Make the important link between cyber strategy and business strategy to deliver value and build trust with stakeholders
  • Sustain your resilience by monitoring the evolving threat landscape and adapting cyber strategies to deliver resilience against new threats
  • Adopt governance structures that allow you to adapt to changing business circumstances.

Ensures you have full ownership of your strategy and its implementation

You’ll be prepared to involve and guide the people who know your business and IT environment bestAs a result, you’ll no longer need to rely on the latest shiny technology a vendor presents, throw money at the problem by building layers of defense that can become unmanageable, train someone else to do the practical work, or appoint a costly consulting firm to develop a roadmap that simply can’t deliver the risk reduction you need quickly enough. 


What kind of professional should enroll into the program?

We have designed the Cyber Strategy and Transformation for executives in charge of cyber-resilience strategies. Created specifically to empower business leaders with the skills and tools they need to mature their cyber resilience frameworks rapidly.

What experience is required?

No leadership skills are required to enter the course, but there is an expectation that you have a background and experience in the world of cybersecurity and/or information technology.

If you’re unsure, schedule a call.

Where are you located?

Our headquarters are located right in the heart of the central business district in Sydney, Australia, where Phil Zongo and Jan Schreuder currently reside.

Our chairman Darren Argyle, originally from the United Kingdom, lives in Singapore, where he works as the Global Chief Information Security Risk Officer at Standard Chartered Bank.

Can my employer pay for the course?

Yes — some of our previous attendees formally request their employers to fund for their participation in our programs. You, however, must familiarize yourself with your company employee training policy in this regard.

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 eight 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 eight 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 CSTP to empower business leaders with the skills and tools they need to mature their cyber resilience frameworks rapidly. All learning happens online so that participants can watch the pre-recorded modules in their own time, at a pace comfortable for them. That said, we encourage participants to do their best to keep up with the weekly lectures to maximize the value of group interactions. Transcripts for all online videos are also available online for those who prefer reading.

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 per week?

Participants should devote an average of 4-5 hours per week to earn their CSTP badge.

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

2 hours to go through online lectures, 2 hours to complete the strategy competition project, and 1 hour to attend the Zoom calls.

What time is the Zoom call?

Because of the global reach of our program, we have no preset 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 CSTP, 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 — 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 CSTP cohort started in August 2021.

How will people know I’ve completed the program?

Once you have fulfilled the CSTP 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.

Visit their website for more information

Are there many exams, assignments, or tests?

There is no standard exam or test at the end of CSTP. To receive their CSTP digital badge, however, participants must complete the cyber strategy competition project.

Over the course of the eight weeks, each participant develops a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy with detailed mentorship directly from Phil, Jan, or Darren. During week 7, we select three finalists and invite them to pitch their strategies to the entire cohort during the last Zoom call.

The winner receives a scholarship to Insead’s Leadership Communication with Impact Program, valued at EUR1,500, to further deepen their executive communication and persuasion skills.

What if in Week one, I feel the program is not for me?

If you aren't deeply satisfied with the first 30 days of our industry-leading course, simply let us know, and we'll give you a full refund.

Are there still positions available in the upcoming enrolment?
