 In Uncategorized, Webinars

2012 has been a dynamic year in IT governance, risk, and compliance. With the increasing importance of data security for both consumers and corporations, solid governance policies surrounding ISO 27001 and PCI DSS compliance are crucial. It’s important to be both up-to-date on regulations and prepared for any potential attacks. That’s not easy, though, with the threat landscape and compliance needs in constant evolution.

Let’s learn from 2012 while preparing for 2013. These leading experts give you a primer on the most essential issues facing your industry, which is why they’ve been chosen as the top five webinars of the year.


1. The Transition to a Modern Approach to Risk Management

Seminal talk here. A fantastic primer on risk analysis in IT security. It changed the way I think about Risk Management from a pie-in-the-sky statistician’s time-sink into a reality-based framework for understanding the frequency, level of exposure, and cost of security threats. Thank you!
