The Cybersecurity Leadership Program in Costa Rica, a combined effort of the Pratt School of Engineering, Sanford School of Public Policy, Department of Computer Science, Duke Law School, and the Universidad Latina de Costa Rica brings together private sector leaders from various sectors and government officials for an intensive three-day program.

Participants will engage with a world-class faculty from academia, government and industry on topics at the intersection of technology, law, and policy. By the end of the program, participants will be able to do the following:

  • Identify and address cyber-related risks to organizations
  • Develop best practices relating to supply chain and other third-party risks
  • Be better prepared to prevent and respond to cyberattacks
  • Better equip their organizations for engaging with relevant actors and share threat and vulnerability information

Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate of completion from Duke and ULatina. All participants will also have the chance to test for the Duke University Certificate of Board Readiness upon conclusion of the program. Those who complete the program will have the opportunity to join other alumni with ongoing access to updated Duke cybersecurity education content.
