Webinar: Seeing the Risk Management Forest for the Trees

Date: 2/19/2020   Time: 12 to 1pm  CPE Credit(s):1
Presenter: Jeff Sisolak, CISM, CISA

The National Institute of Standards and Technology or NIST has issued a comprehensive library of special publications related to cyber security, risk, and their own risk management framework. The framework is compulsory for Federal systems but also gaining popularity in commercial enterprises because they are free, ubiquitous, and often necessary for doing business with government entities anyway. However, the sheer volume of this body of work can be daunting. While thoroughness and precision can be an asset, it can also make it difficult to see the forest for the trees.

This presentation will define the foundational elements of any meaningful cyber security risk management program using the NIST Special Publications (SP) as a guide, with an emphasis on what it means for the internal auditor. It will cover the more common documents such as 800-37, and 800-53. It will cover more obscure documents such as SP 800-18, SP 800-60 vol. I & II, and other related documents not published by NIST. It will conclude with tips and techniques for any cyber security risk management audit program, regardless of the actual framework in use.

Building a Vulnerability Management Program Webinar

Date: 1/16/2020   Time: 12 to 1pm  CPE Credit(s):1
Presenter: Erik Wille, Director, Information Security – Penske Automotive Group

Join Erik in talking about building a thriving vulnerability management program that focuses on improving business risk through refocusing efforts on the vulnerabilities that matter most.

Vulnerability Management is one of the most important, but least sexy, components of an Information Security program coming in at number 3 on the CIS Top 20.  Despite its criticality, many organizations fail to get a program off the ground leading to low hanging fruit for attackers.  Overwhelming volumes of vulnerabilities, lack of asset visibility and missing foundational components to support a vulnerability program are just a couple of reasons programs fail.

Webinar: To FAIR or not?

There are several ways to get the risk assessment wrong. If the risk is considered a “thing”, and not a “quantity”, we probably got it wrong. Werner Enterprises adopted the FAIR (Factor Analysis of Information Risk) framework to perform quantitative risk assessment of information security and operational risk. Dave will walk the audience through their process of adopting FAIR, what worked, what didn’t and the lessons learned as they go through their risk management journey.
