Cyber Risk Assessment Training

Category: Tag:


This course will give you a skill that most managers don’t have and gives you a competitive edge over colleagues. You’ll learn about operational risks in information assets, as well how to view risk assessments within the context of your organisation’s strategic objectives; this is important because it helps us make better decisions about what type or level risks we should take!


About the course:

There are nine modules in this course and covers the Eight Steps in Conducting a Cyber Risk Assessment.

It comes complete with all templates and training on how you conduct a Cyber Risk Assessment as per the Software Engineers Institute recommendations.

The Operationally Critical Threat, Asset, and Vulnerability Evaluation (OCTAVE) Allegro™ method developed by the Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh USA.

The OCTAVE Allegro™ approach provides the Public and Private Sectors a comprehensive methodology that focuses on information assets in their operational context. Cyber risks are identified and analysed based on where they originate, at the points where information is stored, transported, and processed. By focusing on operational risks to information assets, participants learn to view risk assessment in the context of the Public and Private Sectors strategic objectives and risk tolerances.
