Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) is a strategic security program management approach that ties an organization’s security practice to its mission and goals using globally established and accepted risk management principles. In this two-day course, you will explore the philosophy of ESRM, learn how to implement or transition to an ESRM-based security organization, and participate in practical exercises designed to help you develop and present security solutions with an ESRM approach.
- Gain a better understanding of ESRM, and the role of security and business leaders in an ESRM program.
- Learn how to develop a security program in the ESRM model.
- Discover how to use a business approach to communicate security concepts to business leaders.
Implementing ESRM - The Basics
In this session we will walk through the steps of the ESRM life cycle and discuss the processes involved in setting up a security program that aligns with the ESRM approach. We also cover the essentials for ESRM success.
What Is Your Role in ESRM?
Explore the ESRM view of the security leader’s role in the organization to ensure their internal business leaders understand security risks and tolerances and have sufficient information to make business decisions around implementing security risk mitigation programs.
Exercise: In the Beginning
You and your team will be introduced to a fictional organization for which you will develop an ESRM solution. You will have an opportunity to ask questions of the company executives to learn about the organization, your new business partners, and their concerns.
Transitioning to an ESRM Approach
In this session, we will look at the steps to transition from a traditional, tactically focused security management program to a strategic, risk-focused security program approach.
Security Governance - an ESRM Approach
Examine various options for how organizations might choose to govern their security programs in an ESRM implementation, ranging from executive sponsorship to extended security councils.
Exercise: Building the Base
Discuss potential security governance models with your team and draft a security policy and governance charter for your new program.
Manage Your Security Department Through ESRM
Explore how to manage a security department or program through ESRM. Items for discussion include skills needed by your team, potential structures and team roles, and aspects of the security budgeting process.
Risk, Data, and Metrics
Learn how to present reports and metrics that can lead to a better understanding of the state of security risks in the organization. Different types of reports for different audiences also will be explored.
Exercise: Developing a Risk Management Response
In this group exercise, your team will be presented with a security threat facing the organization. You’ll discuss as a team and come up with potential risk mitigation recommendations.
Lunch and Working Break
Talking Security Risk with Executives
In this session, we will explore ways to have factual, not fear-based, discussions about security risk with business executives. Tips and tricks for presenting to a senior executive audience also will be covered.
Exercise: Presenting the Case
This is your opportunity to present your risk management-based security solution to your company executives and receive feedback on how the presentation aligns with the ESRM philosophy and ideals.
