Information Risk Management: Strategies for Preventing and Mitigating Information Security Breaches
||Online Training Course
Stolen laptops, misplaced USB drives, network infiltration by hackers or viruses, crippling denial-of-service attacks—the threats to an organization’s sensitive data are many and continue to grow, even as more and more sensitive data and personally identifying information are maintained and transmitted electronically. The costs associated with information security breaches continue to grow also, partly because of increasingly stringent regulations that hold organizations financially responsible when they fail to secure their sensitive information.
So how should organizations respond to these threats? With a comprehensive, coordinated plan that employs both physical and electronic measures designed to keep sensitive data and personally identifying information out of the hands of cyber criminals and identity thieves.
This course details the extent and potential costs of the information security problem, describes the key components of a well designed information security plan, and outlines strategies that can go a long way toward protecting one of an organization’s most valuable assets—its information.
