Workshop

Enterprise GRC by Design: Blueprint for an Effective, Efficient & Agile Enterprise GRC Management Program

Enterprise GRC by Design is something an organization does and not something an organization buys. GRC, done properly, is what is achieved throughout the business and its operations. By definition, GRC is “a capability to reliably achieve objectives [governance] while addressing uncertainty [risk management] and acting with integrity [compliance].” This requires that GRC needs to be understood in the context of enterprise strategy, objectives, architecture, and processes. GRC by Design requires an enterprise/organization architecture approach to the organization and how it operates.

Workshop

"REAL" Cyber Risk Quantification: How to model and build a Cyber Risk Quantification program as a strategic and operational decision support system

The need for effective cyber risk management based on quantification has been recognized for many years as a prerequisite for success. Many of the models to date provide lots of promise but fall woefully short of delivering effective, scalable, and viable solutions to support near-real-time decision-making and prioritization. In part, this is due to the fact that the models focus almost exclusively on loss avoidance and are scenario-based. In this workshop, you'll get an up-close-and-personal overview of how Asset Value-based Risk Quantification works, how to model it in any business vertical, and how to get started on this pioneering approach to "real" risk quantification and management.
