In this integrative course, students assess the information security risk associated with an identified management problem. Students then develop a risk mitigation strategy which integrates principles and techniques of risk analysis, project planning, and change management.
By the end of this course, the student should know or be able to:
To assess the level of risk in an organization with respect to an identified Information Security management problem.
To formulate a strategy to mitigate the identified Information Security risk, while limiting liability exposure.
To evaluate the defined strategy to ensure that it either reduces, mitigates, or transfers risk, or results in an acceptable residual risk.
To develop a project plan for implementing the chosen strategy that addresses resources, schedules, and organizational change management requirements
