Risk Management through Security Planning

Presenters: David Sherry, CISO, Brown University & Patty Patria, CIO Becker College

Security and risk are both important for any enterprise, and while related, are most often in separate areas. However, all security practitioners at any level are risk managers in some sense of the word. This presentation will offer a combined view by two practitioners of how sound security planning is a risk management technique. While this is a very broad topic, it is the intention of this discussion to be a great primer for those starting the journey, or a valid benchmark for those with such programs in place. We will compare and contrast between a small, local college and a large Ivy league research school to show that the thought processes are the same, and no matter what your size, you can have results.
