Strategic Thinking and Assessing Risk is a comprehensive, hands-on course that takes you through the process of a risk assessment, reviewing industry best practices, techniques, and frameworks such as OCTAVE, CoBit, NIST, and ISO27001. During this course, we provide you with the techniques to identify, assess, and treat risks within an enterprise environment.
