Critical Thinking and Design Thinking Meet Cybersecurity

Our coursework on critical thinking and design thinking fills the gap in cybersecurity that insufficiently challenges prevailing views, observes behavior, applies systems thinking to discover the root cause, values speed and internalizes feedback.

When critical thinking and design merge into design thinking, we get not only innovation in product and service but also the ability to challenge assumptions. Design thinking is crucial because if we are to reengineer our cybersecurity methods, we must first understand the assumptions that have gotten us to where we are today.

Learners who complete this coursework will challenge assumed models of cybersecurity, eliminate artificial structures inherent in traditional approaches and foster design thinkers who can create new models of cybersecurity designed not upon the assumptions of the past, but based instead on our understanding of multiple potential futures.
