Information Security Risk Analysis

Cybersecurity - Managing Risk in our fast changing information age. Develop a strategy to mitigate risk and implement security controls.



This workshop provides participants with the fundamentals of information security risk management, and cost/benefit analysis of implementing security controls.


The workshop is supplemented by a case study that will allow the participants to

  1. conduct a risk analysis using the Harmonized Threat Risk Assessment process 
  2. and conduct a cost benefit analysis of implementing a security control



By taking the workshop, the participate will:

  • Understand when a Threat Risk Assessment (TRA) should be conducted within the lifecycle of an Information Technology (IT) service
  • How TRAs fits into an information security risk management life cycle

  • Understand how to prioritize information security control requirements based on risk level

  • Experience conducting a TRA, so to obtain an understanding of some of the challenges of conducting a TRA

  • Understand how to apply the concept of cost/benefit analysis towards determining the economic value of an information security control

  • Experience conducting a cost benefit analysis on an information security control, so that one obtains an understanding of some of the challenges of doing so.
