Course Description

Risk assessment allows you to identify and prioritize risk, while risk management allows you to analyze, mitigate, or accept risk. In this course, you'll explore risk assessment and management. You'll begin by examining the role Business Impact Analysis plays in risk management and what it accomplishes, before moving on to learn about various risk assessment and analysis approaches. Next, you'll explore the importance of risk mitigation and having a strategy for it, as well as how risk mitigation strategies fit into the risk management effort. You'll learn about the NIST SP 800-37 risk management framework and the steps involved, as well as the Risk Maturity Model and the associated five levels of risk management competency. Finally, you'll explore ongoing risk management, including what causes risk responses and acceptance to change, and the importance of patch management.
