Overview

Security and risk management practitioners involved in the practical implementation of risk analysis and management for information systems. Business managers and risk decision makers who need a good understanding of information risk analysis, assessment and management disciplines in order to make business risk decisions aligned with corporate governance principles.

 

The management of risk is critical for any organisation in achieving its business objectives and this is certainly the case in the areas of information security (IS) and business continuity (BC).  In both areas, the business impact analysis and risk management are the foundation and corner stones to best practice IS and BC management systems.  Without these, organisations are making decisions in the dark about which controls need to be prioritised and implemented.  We can assist you in developing your risk management capabilities through consultancy, our purpose designed risk assessment tool (Abriska) and through our training courses, most notably our multiple certified Practitioner Certificate in Information Risk Management, where not only will you develop your risk management skills but are also able to gain a certificate to demonstrate your competence.

 

This 5 day course, which is delivered by trainers with practitioner backgrounds, leans heavily on practical exercises to provide you with extensive hands-on experience of all the key components of the risk management process.  You will gain invaluable experience in conducting an information risk assessment including business impact analyses and threat and vulnerability assessments.  You will also learn the importance of evaluating risks, selecting controls and presenting results in a way which will form the basis of a risk treatment plan.  As a BCS Gold Partner, we will aim to provide you with the skills and knowledge to enable you to return to your organisation and make a significant contribution to the risk management process.


The PCIRM training course makes full use of current and relevant international standards such as the ISO 27001 Information Security Standard, as well as ISO 31000 and ISO 27005.  The course culminates on the final afternoon with a BCS invigilated examination, which consists of scenario-based, multi choice and short answer questions.

 

Who should attend?
The course will primarily benefit those involved in information security, audit and those engaged in the implementation and operation of formal information risk management, including those charged with PCI DSS compliance and any corporate governance compliance requirements.

 

Benefits
By the end of the course, delegates will have a detailed understanding of all the key components of risk management and be able to return to their organisation and make a significant contribution to the risk management process.


Delegates will benefit from the practical and extensive experiences of the trainers who are all practising risk management specialists.
