Fostering a Risk-Based Approach to Information Security

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Institutional functions must go on but how do we create a secure environment that will not interrupt or stop the business, research or information side? There are many demands, processes and procedures around protecting the University's information assets. Some University-wide risk and security procedures may be obvious, whereas others are less obvious.

Join an interactive information risk panel discussion with various representatives from Identity Services, Internal Audit, Legal, Risk Management and the Office of Information Security. The panel will offer several real-life scenarios that required risk decisions to be made when the answer or process was not clear or obvious. Throughout the discussion, participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how each area functions, both individually and collectively. Participants will also have the opportunity to:
  • Gain a better understanding of the relationship between Internal Audit, the Office of Information Security, Identity Services, Risk Management and Legal
  • Learn about available resources to make better risk-decisions
  • Understand the legal ramifications and enforcement behind non-compliance
  • Discover risk mitigation techniques
