TRAINING COURSE 2 - Cyber Risk Assessment and Quantification

Johan Botha, chair, South Africa Chapter, FAIR Institute

Cyber security is being considered as a top-three organisational risk by most organisations today, as cyber attacks, online fraud and internal threats make a material impact on their businesses. Those responsible for cyber security, from the board and the CEO down, are urgently looking for better ways to measure and report risk that will enable well-informed decision-making. This two-day training course is aimed at delegates wanting to understand how to assess, quantify and report cyber risk in financial terms in order to bridge the communication and reporting divide between IT and information security on the one side, and the board and executive management on the other.

By attending this course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of:

  • The basic concepts of cyber security risk analysis;
  • Cyber security risk analysis and quantification taxonomy and terminology;
  • The process of cyber security risk analysis and quantification;
  • How to develop, interpret and report cyber security risk analysis results; and
  • How cyber security risk elements can be measured.

Who should attend?

  • Individuals who require a basic understanding of the cyber risk quantification using the Open FAIR Body of Knowledge.
  • Professionals who are working in roles associated with a cyber risk analysis project, such as those responsible for information system security planning, including:
    • Execution;
    • Development;
    • Delivery; and
    • Operation.
  • Information security and risk analysts who are looking for a first introduction to the Open FAIR Body of Knowledge.

What to bring/experience required:

No previous knowledge or experience in cyber risk quantification is necessary, but a background in information/cyber security would be preferable.
