Cybersecurity Risk Program Training Academy- Risk Management Strategies - Windsor, CT (CCS)

About this Event

New cybersecurity risk regulations for all organizations are approaching faster than you might think.

"Computers, software, programming and algorithms are all parts of a cybersecurity risk program, but it is the interaction with the "humans" that makes all the difference in world."

An effective cybersecurity risk program requires an organization to have everything from program policies to incident response plans to specific breach notification procedures. Banking and insurance organizations also have to certify compliance to their regulators. It is important to learn how to approach cybersecurity risks on a holistic basis and what you can do now to start managing cyber risk before a risk event occurs.

This training program focuses on describing the effective components of a modern cybersecurity risk management program. The attendees will be prepared to start the evaluation of an existing program. They will then be able to discuss with senior management, the audit committee, and the board of directors how to proceed in improving cybersecurity risk management. Five main components of an effective program are reviewed: data, control implementation, verification, breach preparedness and risk management.

This comprehensive training course is for anyone who wants to have a strong base of knowledge and understanding of the essentials of cybersecurity risk management. We cover an overview of ten principles that need to be considered within a Cybersecurity Risk Management Program in a short video available on YouTube. Here is a link to it:
