So You Think You Know Risk Management

Infosec officers are coming around to the idea that their job is more about managing risk than putting the entire organization on permanent lockdown. But do security pros understand risk management as well as they think they do?

Risk Management at the Business Driver Level
The one thing that I picked up from this video and concur with is, that many security professionals, especially those that are technology focused; do not equate threats with business drivers. They equate threats with threat actors meaning a particular threat that exists "somewhere out there". When we ask ourselves what are the threats to my business drivers (how I do business, etc), we start identifying what our true risks are. We can then mitigate those risks to an appropriate level corresponding to the organization's particular risk tolerance.  This does two things for us: it allows us to cost effectively apply security controls and secondly, prevents us from throwing security controls haphazardly at a perceived threat.

This to me is the key point of what John said: that we need to think risk first, and security second. It makes sense, but it's definitely a shift in mindset

Re: Pending Review
How are we still having this debate. Some basics....First deal with what you know, e.g. new threats appear every day, what risk do those threats pose to the organisation, how are we dealing with those threats. Second, do we understand whats truly business critical, what are the threats/risks and how are we dealing with those. Third, do we have ownership, because without it you dont have responsibility or accountability, so not even at first base. Fourth, who's tying all these strands together. Fifth, is all this being reported.
