Vulnerability is not constant. It is variable and can be dependent,
independent, or time dependent. The identification of vulnerability is critical
to the larger security program at your organization’s business. Effectively
identifying, classifying and implementing a vulnerability reduction program
isn’t easy, especially in the potential absence of supportable security incident
data, credible intelligence or peer experience. The ability to work effectively
on a day-to-day basis with the concepts of threat, risk and impact will
significantly assist in the determination of vulnerability and how it can be
effectively reduced.
–– Clarification of the elements of vulnerability
–– The interaction of resilience and vulnerability
–– Leading practice with respect to classifying vulnerability
–– Effects of threat, risk and impact on vulnerability
–– Threat identification – known and reasonably foreseeable
–– Vulnerable asset criticality
What Participants Will Learn
This one-day program will address the concepts of threat, risk, and impact
and how they specifically relate to vulnerability. It will identify how these
elements can be qualified and quantified and what role they individually
play with respect to the concept of vulnerability. Regardless of whether
vulnerability is considered people, process or technology-based, it needs
to be defined in conjunction with the nature of the potential adversaries and
to what extent they will need to be equipped to successfully exercise those
types of vulnerabilities.
This program draws on the experience of The Banks Group Inc., their
work in the ASIS International Physical Security Council and recognized
leading practices within the security environment. By the end of this one day
program attendees will have a template to assist them in their organization’s
vulnerability reduction efforts.
