RSA 2020, NIST CSF, and Dark Reading

First off, I’m very pleased to announce that I will be presenting again next year at the RSA Conference. My session is called “Maturing Cyber-Risk Management Practices: Framework and Next Steps” (EZCL-R01).¬† This will be done as a Collaborative Learning Session (a new RSAC format). I’ll lead a discussion then turn it over to the room to begin analyzing their risk management program and assessing its maturity.

ISSA Journal – The Future of ITRM will be Quantified

The December issue of the ISSA Journal was released and my article on the Future of IT Risk is on the cover. The¬†theme for this month’s Journal is “The Next 10 Years” and I wanted to highlight where I saw the industry going. I begin with a look back on the progress away from ordinal scale, verbal risk labels and project out on where things will go. I cover regulatory, insurance, and customer pressures to quantify as well as outline a path forward where risk quantification can be used as a competitive advantage.
