Dear Rob,    

On May 25, 2017 the ISSA-KC Chapter members, and other security professionals will hold a meeting at Hereford House at Town Center Plaza to network and attend the monthly chapter meeting, with presentation topic.

Topic: Making a Jump to Risk Management

Discussion on Risk Management and the components of Security, Business Continuity and Compliance.  We will discuss the definitions of what is included within Risk Management including Emerging Risk Register, how to determine Risk Impact, Probability and Severity.  We will also demonstrate a quick example to show how all the components work together to form a final risk exposure value.    This meeting will be more of a discussion than presentation, so be prepared to jump in with questions and comments.
