For those learners who are enrolled in the full module, you have a task as homework that you need to complete before beginning your next short course: Risk Management.

Your task

Read this article Companies must start taking cyber risk seriously (Crumpton 2019) and identify how the ‘introduction of 5G and the spread of artificial intelligence’ will see threats of cyber crime rise, and how this will affect an organisation’s attitude to risk management.
Students on the full Digital Security Risk module, and therefore students of Coventry University, can access the UK Financial Times website using the institutional subscription for free.
The purpose of this activity is to encourage you to read critically and enhance your understanding of the cyber security and risk management world.
You might find the University study skills guide on reading, thinking and writing critically useful for this exercise.
