Information Risk Management – The Rosetta Stone of Cybersecurity with Stan Stahl, PhD

Your Cybersecurity Resource for Financial Institutions

Title: Information Risk Management – The Rosetta Stone of Cybersecurity

Speaker: Stan Stahl, PhD, SecureTheVillage Founder & President

Description: Effective communication is at the very heart of management. Yet effective communication between IT and management is often blocked by the simple fact that IT / Information Security and management seem to speak two different languages. Like the Rosetta Stone, Information Risk Management provides a common language that both IT / Information Security and management understand. Information Risk Management may also provides a legal basis for the argument that one’s information security practices are defendable.

Drawing on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Risk Management, the Center For Internet Security (CIS) Risk Assessment Method, and the Sedona Conference, Dr. Stahl will describe Information Risk Management and demonstrate how it can be applied in making information security management decisions.

  • How much protection is my information security spending providing?
  • Is the reasonableness of our security practices defendable?
  • Am I spending my security budget in the right place?
  • Where can I get the greatest additional security by investing another $X in information security?
  • Compared to other corporate resources, is this the best place to spend $X?
