Model, Measure, and Prioritize Your Risk in Dollars and Cents

Learn a common language and framework that allows information security professionals, senior executives, and independent directors to communicate and partner effectively to manage cybersecurity risk.

Workshop Overview:

This workshop is designed to introduce information security professionals, senior executives, and independent directors to the current state-of-the-art in measuring information risk in financial terms.  Participants will acquire the foundational skills used to identify, assess, and communicate risk in business terms using a common vocabulary and methodology through demonstration and hands-on exercises.


Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the workshop, participants will gain skills necessary to:

  • Understand risk as a function of the likelihood and impact of an event within a specified context
  • Compare the use of risk matrices (heat maps) with current value at risk (VaR) quantification models
  • Evaluate the sources of data used to quantify risk, including security logs, publicly available breach data, surveys, and calibrated expert opinion
  • Apply the Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) standard in describing and characterizing risk scenarios
  • Use stochastic simulations to measure the financial impact of information risk
  • Quantify the relative value of controls to reduce risk for a sample  scenario
