Arguably, the single most valuable skill that you can learn in Information Security today in order to improve your security posture for tomorrow is Risk Management. The simple process of identifying your risks, planning your mitigations, and performing reviews puts your company squarely in the drivers seat when it comes to justifying its security expenditures in order to reduce risk. SimpleRisk is the only free and open source alternative to the bloated and expensive Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) platforms out there and is being used by corporations of all sizes, around the world, to perform their risk management activities. During this half-day seminar, Josh Sokol, the Creator of SimpleRisk, will walk attendees through the basics of risk management using hands-on activities and the SimpleRisk tool. By the end of the course, attendees will have the knowledge necessary in order to deploy SimpleRisk in their environment, use it to manage their risks, and have a firm grasp on the processes involved in managing risks.
Josh Sokol, CISSP, graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a BS in Computer Science in 2002. Since that time, he has worked for several large companies, including AMD and BearingPoint, spent some time as a military contractor, and is currently employed as the Information Security Program Owner at National Instruments. In his current role, Sokol manages all compliance, security architecture, risk management, and vulnerability management activities for NI. Sokol created the free and open source risk management tool named SimpleRisk, has spoken on dozens of security topics including the much-hyped “HTTPSCan Byte Me” talk at Black Hat 2010, and currently serves on the OWASP Global Board of Directors.
