Enterprise Security is a top-of-the-mind issue with CIOs / CTOs today.  With every new emerging technology such as Cloud, Distributed Computing, Mobile Computing etc., Enterprises are becoming more open and connected, thus increasing the likelihood of security attacks.  Management also has to comply with a maze of Governance and Regulatory compliance requirements.

This talk discusses a methodology for comprehensive security risk assessment of the enterprise, creates a risk scorecard with detailed ratings, and develops risk mitigation strategies.  It also includes cost / benefit analysis for each mitigation strategy proposed.  Using these, Management will be able to prioritize risks and come up with a plan to build the necessary risk controls to minimize unforeseen losses.
