This SRMC® Level 7 course has been designed to build advanced knowledge, capability and confidence for security and risk professionals who aspire to excel in their field. The course will allow you to develop your critical thinking and analytical skills, support your career development and helping you to gain access to post graduate and master’s degrees at UK universities.

The SRMC® course is designed at postgraduate level to enable students to match their learning to the levels of knowledge that employers increasingly expect from their specialist, management and leadership teams. Through evaluating, analysing and determining strategic approaches to the subject matter, our students will build confidence in their understanding of the issues and risks that face organisations now and will become increasingly impactful in the future. Students will evaluate the impacts of new and emerging technologies, using them within organisations but also recognising the threats that their use by adversaries and competitors may bring. There are increasing issues related to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Sustainability and Governance (ESG) concerns and the implications of compliance and demonstrable support to these particular aspects of organisational behaviour. These increasingly important aspects of organisational resilience form a key component of the Course.

The aim of this unit is to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills necessary to develop organisational capabilities for engagement with strategic governance in risk and management. It considers the financial and economic aspects of organisational activity that may impact, or be impacted by organisational risk considerations.
