EnergySec’s “Reducing Cybersecurity Risk: Tactics and Strategies” course is designed to provide participants with the cybersecurity, framework, and communication theory required to get a grip on cyber security risk management and reduction. Rather than walk you through the same tired old risk management principles, this class will decompose the causes, sources, and nature of the problem and teach approaches and techniques which can be, together, applied to this difficult (and still poorly understood) problem. While utilizing existing tools and models, the class will go far beyond them and focus on fundamentally missing or underrepresented topics. Some of these include:

  • The Essentials of Cyber Security (How it is important and Why it is so difficult)
  • Framework Skills Development (How can we build and use focused, practical frameworks)
  • “Cyber” Management Skills Development (Concepts such as metrics and organizational behavior that are necessary to get a grip on your environment”
  • Filling out the NISTCSF and C2M2 gaps
  • Understanding and applying Risk Management practices

Note: The Reducing Cybersecurity Risk: Theory and Tactics course can be combined with the NERC CIP Audit Workshop the previous two days for a discounted rate. Click here to register for the bundled courses.

Any cancellations received more than one month before the start of the session will be refunded 50% of the tuition of the course registered. Any cancellations that are received less than one month before the start of the session, will not be eligible for a refund. The cancellation must be sent in writing to info@energysec.org or to EnergySec, 8440 SE Sunnybrook Blvd Suite 206, Clackamas OR 97015.

One postponement without a penalty fee is permitted. Any further request for postponement cannot be guaranteed and may result in a forfeiture of the course tuition.
