How much security against cyber attacks is enough economically in today’s business world? That’s the focus of this two-day program instructed by Tyler Moore, Ph.D., University of Tulsa Associate Professor of Computer Science, Tandy Chair of Cyber Security and Information Assurance, 2016-17 New America Cybersecurity Fellow.
Anyone who has the responsibility of protecting the security of a company’s IT infrastructure but does not have formal training in cybersecurity will benefit from attending.
“Great class. Included excellent information on what to collect to determine risk in our environment.” – Justin, Security Engineer, QuikTrip Corporation
“Enjoyed the material & group discussion time.” – Patrick, IT, Calyx Energy
“This course is excellent for both cyber security practitioners to help understand the business side of cyber security and instrumental for anyone tasked with convincing CSuite Execs to invest in security.” – Erin, CSOC Lead, QuikTrip Corporation
Participants will learn, through HANDS-ON EXERCISES, how to answer the question, “How much security is enough?”, using three different methodologies:
1. They will understand that when compliance regimes dictate investments, meeting those obligations could be enough.
2. They will understand how to apply security investment frameworks and identify ‘enough’ spending when the controls recommended by the framework are applied.
3. They will learn how to compute quantitative metrics which calculate return on security investment, as well as conduct cost-benefit analysis to determine when security investments bring more benefits than they cost, spending is ‘enough’.
But Most Importantly:
4. Participants will understand the advantages and disadvantages of each approach, and be comfortable using each to guide investment decision.
