Understanding, managing and responding to risk is one of the core functions of any information security program. However, for many organizations risk assessment is cumbersome and time consuming process. IT leaders, as well as security regulations, are demanding risk management practices that can deliver quick and actionable results.
Rapid Risk Assessment is a new approach to risk management that dramatically reduces the time, effort, and complexity for IT security risk assessment. Using the existing principles of risk management defined in NIST 800-30 documents, Rapid Risk Assessment can deliver more actionable and reliable results empowering business leaders to make sound decisions about risk. The key to this approach is a unique combination of skills, organization, and documentation that accelerates every aspect of the risk management process.
In this presentation, IT Security veteran Andrew Plato will describe how current risk management practices are broken and how Rapid Risk Assessment fixes these problems. The presentation will also provide examples of how to define threats, compute probability, and use security assessment data to reinforce risk concepts.
