Risk Management for SMEs

  • Jim Herbeck

Managing information- and IT-related risk is a big undertaking for large organizations. It can be even more challenging for small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). One of the first steps in the risk management process is risk assessment. Often the risk assessment methodologies used by large corporations don't work well for SMEs. Some risk assessment methodologies can take 6-12 months, or longer, to perform. "That simply doesn't work for SMEs," says Jim Herbeck, presenter of this webcast on information security for SMEs. "SMEs need results--something that validates their expenditures for risk management and information security, not just paper reports that accomplish nothing tangible," Herbeck says. This webcast offers an overview of risk management along with pragmatic ideas for how to accelerate the risk assessment process. The webcast is appropriate for anyone who's responsible for managing, developing, or implementing information security at an SME.
