Course description

It’s nearly impossible to completely eliminate risk, but there are steps you can take to reduce it. This nine-video series on risk management takes a close look at risk management: definitions, tools, notable risk frameworks such as the NIST Risk Management Framework (RMF) and other Special Publications and the process of calculating risk. We also touch on threats and threat agents, the difference between due diligence and due care, and tips and best practices for ensuring that your employees are security-conscious and aware of risks. People are always the weakest link, so take an hour to learn how to strengthen them.
