Program Description:

Your organization’s information is highly at risk in the cyberspace. Cybersecurity risk management comprises the full range of activities undertaken to protect information and data from unauthorized access and other cyber threats, to maintain awareness of cyber threats, to detect anomalies and incidents adversely affecting the privacy of sensitive information and data. President Trump’s Cybersecurity Executive Order sets a 90-day deadline for each Federal Agency in the Executive Branch to submit a risk management report. It would describe their security measures and what are deemed to be significant risks.

During this session, Dr. Barry will discuss risk management approaches commensurate with the risk and magnitude of the harm that would result from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, disruption, modification, or destruction of critical information assets and data privacy.

The focus of this session is Federal Government, but many of the principles apply in the private sector as well.
