Risk Assessment for Information Security

Brad Egeland

Risk Assessment Technique Terminology The first set of terms that your information security team should be aware of is terms related to specific techniques. Rather than laying out a step-by-step methodology, it provides information about what your risk assessment should ultimately include.

Information quality; information integrity

Musings on Project Management

The idea behind data quality being to evaluate risk in the presence of not only uncertainty, but also to look at the impact of making risk-informed decisions in the presence of lousy data. In the early 21st century when the 4th edition to the PMBOK was being designed for publication in the first decade, there was debate about adding "data quality" to Chapter 11, Risk Management.

Project Management Career Q&A – Sharing Sensitive Information

Arras People

I’m looking for a new position and want to update my resume but I’m unsure how I can do that without sharing sensitive information. Next you focus on the project management methods, processes, tools, techniques – again all of these will not require the sharing of sensitive information. I’m working in a security sensitive organisation and the projects I manage also require security clearance to work on them.

How warm are your stakeholders about Information Radiators?

Kiron Bondale

Information radiators can help stakeholders remain informed and can reduce effort spent by a team in handling requests for updates but to reap these benefits we must ensure that the information published meets their needs.

Just because you have information radiators doesn’t mean senior stakeholders will review them!

Kiron Bondale

Information radiators are a great idea. But convincing executives to use information radiators as a primary means of staying current is not an easy task. The information shared is likely to be somewhat stale.

The playing field is not level; there are asymmetries all around.

Coping with information overload

Lynne Cazaly

Using PET scans and MRI imaging they’ve discovered what our brain is trying to do - after a full day’s work of overwhelming meetings and information dumps. While we’re asleep, dreaming is the brain’s way of deleting or ‘dumping excess data’ Our brain is kind of taking out the trash, but it’s also ‘consolidating important information’ The categorizing, sorting and processing that's going on in dreaming is epic!

Information Technology Risk Management from Glen Alleman. Information Technology Estimating Quality. Risk Management is How Adults Manage Projects - Tim Lister (IBM). It can't be stated too often - either manage risk, or risk will manage you. Projects without risk management are late and over budget before they start. All project work is uncertain. Uncertainties are either reducible or irreducible.

Managing information overload in a world of too much %$#&* information

Lynne Cazaly

Are we ever 'taught' or 'shown' what to do in a situation of information overload? Part of the 'it's all too much' zone is when we foolishly choose to REWORK information. But it's one of the most ineffective and inefficient ways to handle information overload. It's worth building the confidence and capability to handle all that information, live.

Stop squirrelling information

Lynne Cazaly

I'm posting on information overload this week; one of my conference keynote topics, best scheduled at the start of the conference! We're faced with so much information yet we haven’t evolved our abilities to process and cope with it all. An issue is how we squirrel away information intent on working on it 'later’, reviewing it, keeping it, having it. at a conference where a tonne of information is presented via PowerPoint.

We can make information overload worse

Lynne Cazaly

To handle the never-ending flow of information we face, it’s useful realising that the way we currently do things could be making it harder for us to take in information with ease. We’re used to our preferences (and we defend them), when we’re reading a document or listening to a presentation for example, yet we struggle with information overload and its effects. Would you be willing to try some new techniques to handle information overload?
