Course description

All current "best" practice organizations today are promoting a risk-based approach to managing security. Risk management has been identified as a critical component for success. The institutionalization of both risk and security management practices into every system development life cycle promote a risk- and security-aware culture for the organization. Your knowledge of risk management strategies and frameworks will aid you not only in the test, but also in the course of your work.
