In order to effectively manage risk, we need to be able to effectively measure risk. Before we can ever hope to effectively measure risk, we should all agree on exactly what is the definition of risk. When something as elementary as defining risk can sow confusion, caveats and so many questions, you know we need to do a better job.
I am joined on this episode of the Security.Exe Podcast by some experts in risk. I have Alex Hutton, formerly of Verizon and now a top risk officer at a top 25 financial institution, Ben Tomhave (@falconsview) of LockPath and finally last but not least, Jody Brazil of Firemon.
Of course as most of you know I have been looking at risk an awful lot lately as part of working with Jody and the Firemon guys around their Risk Analyzer product. But getting a few really smart people to talk about a concept is a great way to learn. I learned a lot listening to the folks on this episode. I think you will too!
I am thinking of expanding this discussion into perhaps a panel for a conference talk. Let me know what you think.
