Threat, Vulnerability and Risk Assessment Course (TVRA)
The first step of every professional security manager is to understand the threats and risks that might pose harm to those persons and assets that he is charged with his protection. In this course, participants will learn how to look at their operations from the attacker point of view and understand what an attacker looks for while planning an attack. You will learn the difference between a Threat and a Risk and how to measure it in a way that other managers and stakeholders will understand and cooperate with you. Knowing the processes of your organization is sometimes more crucial than understanding how many exits and entrances you have. Processes such as public entrance to a shopping centre are different from the contractor’s entrance to a shipyard- how do they differ, what are the risks, and how do we mitigate those risks?
