Foundations of Risk Management

PRESENTED BY: Jason Winder, Founding Partner, Aerstone

SUMMARY: With the digital transformation of business, and the redefinition of core business functions as cloud-hosted services, we see a changing threat and risk landscape that both helps and hinders security posture. Evolving technologies such as blockchain security provide tremendous promise, even while new trends such as social media create new risks that security officers must not fail to address. And despite all these enormous changes, the basic tenets of sound security architecture have not changed. In fact, it is critical that security decision makers understand the core principals of security engineering.

This course is a hands-on working seminar that will explore the eight domains of security engineering, provide information and background on their evolution, and ultimately tie each domain to real-world threats and risks. Examples of well-known security breaches will be used to highlight the dangers faced by modern companies as they attempt to implement a secure and functional enterprise. Finally, a risk management framework will be presented as a toolset for analyzing risk and implementing proper mitigating strategies.
