Conducting a Risk Assessment Using the New ANSI/ASIS/RIMS.RA.1 Standard

Risk assessments provide the informational foundation for decision making in business and risk management. Security and risk management practitioners need to conduct risk assessments that support the achievement of strategic, tactical and operational objectives of their organizations. The new standard, developed jointly by ASIS International and the Risk and Insurance Management Society (RIMS), brought together more than 200 experts from around the globe to share best practices and develop a reliable and repeatable risk assessment process. The standard complements the risk management approaches described in the ISO31000 and ISO31010. The session will describe how to implement this risk assessment process in any type of organization.
