Concise, interactive seminars designed for business users
September 22nd 2010 Espion, the Irish based information risk and security specialist today announced the ‘Espion Information Security & Risk 101 Sessions’ – a series of free seminars designed for the business user looking to learn more about this increasingly important topic. This series looks to provide participants with an overview of the most common risks information is exposed to, the potential impact risk may have on a business and how to effectively manage risk to an acceptable level.
“We work with organisations from a wide range of industries, all with unique IT infrastructures and business processes. What they all have in common is a reliance on corporate data”, said Colman Morrissey, managing director with Espion. “Ensuring that risks to critical information are managed is no longer just an issue for the IT department. Corporate governance and compliance requirements are forcing senior management to better understand and manage their risk posture. Customer data, financial records, Intellectual Property are of primary concern to functions across the entire organisation. Information Risk is an issue that needs to be addressed in a broader business context.”
Limited to 101 minutes, the seminars will give a comprehensive grounding in the topic and the impact it can have on an organisation. An interactive element to the agenda will encourage the attendees to look at their own organisation and assess the risk posed. On leaving the attendees will not only have a better comprehension of the subject, they will understand how it applies to their situation and how to start addressing it.
