Course Description

If a threat agent exploits an IT asset's vulnerability, then the consequences for a business could be detrimental. In IT security terms, the likelihood of this happening and the potential impact if it did constitutes the concept of risk.

Those responsible for the operational security of assets need to know how to reduce risk sufficiently. Use this course to learn the many ways to identify, assess, and manage risk related to IT infrastructure.

Explore, in detail, various risk management techniques, such as risk visibility and reporting, threat modeling, and risk treatment. Examine legal and regulatory concerns when managing risk. And see how to implement organizational security awareness and training.

Upon completion, you'll know how to bring risk magnitude down to a pre-defined acceptable level. You'll also be further prepared to sit the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) 2021 exam.
