Exploring how cyber-security affects businesses: Nanyang Technological University’s Business School launches first risk management course

English translation of summary of the article:
• From Mid-August this year, Nanyang Business School started to offer cyber-risk management and insurance courses
• 22 out of 52 students who minored in Risk Management and Insurance chose to take this course
• This course is different from that offered by the School of Engineering – instead of tackling technology-related issues, the course focuses on the impact of cybersecurity on enterprises
• Hopefully this will help business school students have a knowledge of cyber risk, to master methods of quantifying cyber threats and use this to evaluate similar future threats
• Prof Wang brought up the example of Equifax, to show that a lack of cyber security knowledge may result in great loss
• Two students were quoted in the article: 
   -  One observed that cyber security has been a popular topic and many students seek to understand how cyber threats impact enterprises and learn how to reduce them
   -  Another pointed out that as we are living in an era of virtual currency, a knowledge of cyber security will help us to better manage risks and protect our digital wealth.
