Why is security risk assessment vital? There are millions of potential threats from terrorism, insiders wishing to cause harm, theft or coercion by organised crime and many more. Security risks can cost billions of dollars’ worth of damages to companies that are unprepared.
Without mitigation strategies in place, your organisation stands vulnerable to any number of these risks. This begs the question, how much risk can your organisation tolerate?
This course will provide your organisation’s senior management with the ability to explore a range of frameworks for conducting security risk assessments and suggests a number of resources to obtain further information and assistance.
It will also provide you with tools, templates and applications that can simplify and add efficiencies to security risk management for your organisation.
