Cybersecurity risk management is both an art and a science. Organizations must first identify the risks to their data and information assets to mitigate them effectively. This talk will cover qualitative and quantitative risk analysis techniques that can be used to identify and quantify both accidental and malicious threats to computer systems within an organization. In addition to technical solutions, the talk considers strategies and policies that will provide cost effective and highly secure systems.
Attendees will learn the following at this talk:
• Determine high level security requirements by analyzing the mission and business critical processes of the organization.
• Conduct security assessments to identify the security risks to the organization and develop solutions to address those risks.
