Overview

Auditors and security professionals are constantly trying to provide advice to the business, working to limit risk. Have you had the experience that management sometimes does not react to what you view as very risky issues in the business? In this webcast we will walk you through a risk assessment technique that is very useful for creating operationally aligned findings and talk about how to effectively communicate these findings to the business in a way to motivate change.

This webcast is just a small piece of a full six day course that covers not just risk assessment and communication, but assists security managers, engineers and auditors to both analyze their organization and build continuous monitoring and reporting systems within the business. If you need to improve the state of security in your business, you need to take this class!
