Join us on Friday, November 6th, 2020 for “Hacking Risk Management: An hour of critical thinking on how we’re allocating resources against our risk posture”.


Cybersecurity IS risk management. The concept of full security is a misnomer. Security professionals are always balancing risk for the sake of the business. What are all the factors that go into creating a risk profile and how do security professionals work with the business to balance that risk and heck, know if they’re even doing a good job.

Joining me for this discussion will be:

In preparation for the event, be thinking about the following questions:

  • How do you create a baseline risk assessment? Are questionnaires enough?
  • When and why is it important to bring in a third party to do an assessment?
  • Where do you go about dealing with risk issues first?
  • How do you go about rating yourself against similar companies?
  • How do you know if you’re effectively managing (and maintaining) your risk posture?
  • How do you know if managing a certain risk is far too costly?
