Today, more than ever, organizations like yours have to develop and implement a security architecture that enables the in-depth protection of your most valuable business assets. And you’re the person they’re counting on to do it. Good news. This course will show you how. Here, you’ll learn to design business-driven security architecture by recognizing the main risk exposure and defining security-control measurement metrics to efficiently manage organizational risk.
