NYU Tandon Cybersecurity Industry Partner Badges
When Cyber Fellows earn an NYU Cybersecurity Industry Partner badge, they gain real world industry experience as they work on their MS degree.
Digital Cyber Academy Badge
Immersive Labs is a cyber skills development platform. Using scenario-driven games, real-time threat intelligence, and current cyber frameworks, it immerses students in challenges with the goal of developing skills that reduce cyber risk. Students earn points for each lab they complete. Students complete technical challenges in real-life cyber scenarios via labs and from across the globe compete against each other on a gamified platform featuring a leaderboard. The Immersive Labs Badge is awarded when 20,000 points are earned.
Wavestone Cyber Regulations & Financial Institutions Badge
At the confluence of management consulting and digital and innovation consulting, Wavestone supports leading companies and organizations in delivering their most critical transformations. The firm offers the services of over 2,800 employees on four continents, with the ability to operate seamlessly across regions.
With the digital revolution, private and public organizations’ exposure to cyber threats have faced a rapid acceleration over the past several years. The number and impact of attacks have steadily increased, causing major losses estimated at $600B worldwide in 2017. As financial services have long been a primary target due to a higher potential for profit, US regulators such as the FED or the NYS DFS are increasing their scrutiny and reshaping their requirements. This is also being seen internationally as the topic of cyber security, especially data privacy, is being challenged by governments and regulators globally.
Through this in-person workshop, cybersecurity experts from Wavestone, a global consulting firm, will present the evolving regulatory landscape, and explain how it pushes financial institutions to rethink their approach to cybersecurity. Students will need to complete a workshop assessment to earn the badge.
Workshop Date (in-person): May 30, 2019, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m., NYU Tandon School of Engineering
Details regarding a remote version of the workshop are forthcoming.
