The learning experience at Navigator is as much about the peer-to-peer exchange as the curriculum itself. An unparalleled alum network from some of the world's leading organisations has already graduated from the programme since its inception in 2020. Here are just a few.

What Alumni Say

Time well invested - with a tight schedule indeed. A great lineup of faculty members. Great learnings and tools, too, from former CISOs and a cohort of leading CISOs from EMEA and worldwide. Amazing case studies provided invaluable insights into what worked and what did not.

The Academy's mission is clear: make cyber resilience not just a tech focus but a business one. And through the Navigator programme, they're empowering senior tech and cybersecurity leaders, like myself, to champion this cause.

Senior Director, Global Information Security,

I can honestly say this is the best executive education course I've been on. Each session was well thought out, curated and delivered by the excellent teaching lineup and guest speakers. The takeaway from the week was clear: information security and cyber resilience are vital functions in all organisations.
