This course will provide a basic awareness of the principles of technical risk assessment, risk treatment and risk management. The course emphasises that information risk management is part of overall business risk management. It explains the benefits of a common methodology and language for risk management but stresses that a rigid adoption of a process model is often not appropriate and that each aspect of risk management must be considered in the context of the business requirements and its appetite for risk.
The course objectives are:
- To explain the principles of risk assessment, risk treatment and risk management
- To describe the available methods for completing a basic risk assessment
- To enable delegates to understand the application of security controls to risks and the importance of adequate assurance.
- To explain how risk management can be conducted in the context of the business.
