Cybersecurity 360 kicked off its U.S. Module at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business on November 5, 2018.
A joint programme by UC Berkeley Executive Education and EIT Digital, Cybersecurity 360 is a two-part executive education programme taking place in both the United States and in Europe.

There were also topics hinging on region-specific expertise, such as "Silicon Valley's Response to Cybersecurity" and "Cybersecurity, Venture Capital, and Legal Challenges".
The programme was taught by faculty comprised of industry leaders from the Silicon Valley community, such as Mark Egan (former CIO of Symantec and VMWare), Lars Rabbe (Yahoo's first CIO, also former IT Director for Steve Jobs), and Andrew Isaacs (Cybersecurity 360 U.S. Faculty Lead and Faculty Director of UC Berkeley's Center for Executive Education).
The U.S. Module concluded with a visit to Salesforce in San Francisco where participants met with Salesforce's privacy and security experts - Taher Elgamal (CTO, Security, who is also recognized in the industry as the "father" of SSL) and Maco Stewart (Sr. Corporate Counsel, Privacy).
