  • How can you know what administrative, technical and physical safeguards your information security program should have until you have identified the threats you need to guard customer information against?
  • When is the last time you performed a threat assessment?
  • Are you in danger of discovering the "hard way" that your risk assessment (and therefore your information security program) is inadequate?
  • Have you used tools to facilitate your risk assessment and to ensure a consistent and standardized approach?
  • Have you formulated your assessment team prudently?
  • Have you developed scenarios and ranked their risk?
  • Do you have a process in place for identifying new risk factors on an ongoing basis?
  • Are you incorporating newly identified weaknesses or emerging security threats into the test and evaluation process?
  • Is your process for identifying areas of vulnerability, types of damage and potential consequences well thought out?
One of the most crucial components of a solid information security program is the risk assessment. Identifying the threats that could lead to alteration, destruction, misuse, or unauthorized disclosure of customer information is not only the first step in constructing a program, but also a critical ongoing task. Only with that information can you continually enhance your program to include appropriate prevention, detection and response components.

This Webinar will take you, step by step, through three of the key components for risk assessment: information gathering, analysis of the likelihood and potential harm from various risks, and prioritization of responses. It will acquaint you with critical success factors in the risk assessment area. As part of the program, you will receive tools to help you get the job done and we'll make you aware of additional resources available to you.

This program will help you understand how to use measurements such as ARO (Annualized Rate of Occurrence) and SLE (Single Loss Expectancy) to quantify risks. It will focus on the risk continuum and the business decisions associated with deciding where you want to be on that continuum, based upon the levels of potential impact of different types of threats.

This webinar will equip you with a framework from which you can make the adjustments to your information security program that are necessary to truly safeguard your customers' information to the degree required by the regulators and expected by your customers.

You will have an opportunity to compare a laundry list of threats against those you have identified. Don't miss this important training.
