Course Overview

Quantitative risk analysis in the information security and technology areas has gained in popularity in the last several years, but many risk managers aren’t sure how to get started. They think they lack the skills, the software, or the data to perform a credible quantitative risk analysis. We’re going to get you headed in the right direction with the groundwork, techniques, and tools you need to take your assessments to the next level.

Join SIRA board members Lisa Young and Tony Martin-Vegue for an interactive, hands-on 2-day workshop that covers the fundamentals of risk management, risk analysis models, and solutions for the most common problems in risk programs. Participants will learn risk scenario building, integrating risk analysis into business decisions, common qualitative and quantitative models, and data gathering. The workshop incorporates a variety of activities, including group risk modeling, role-playing, and hands-on analysis to create an exciting and engaging experience. Students will come away with practical tools and knowledge that can be implemented immediately.


Have each student walk away with a good understanding as to where risk analysis fits into risk management and decision-making, reasons why quantitative risk analysis is useful, problems that CAN and CANNOT be solved by risk analysis, and hands-on skill-building.

Specific course objectives are:

  • Gain an understanding of the overall risk management process

  • Construct good risk scenarios

  • Discuss methods used in risk assessment and analysis

  • Learn about and qualitative and quantitative models and tools

  • Hands-on risk analysis

  • Gather data with external research, sampling methods, and expert judgment
