About the course

Organizations need an adaptable and agile process that allow executives to have a real-time view of cyber risks. To address this challenge, the Operationally Critical Threat, Asset, and Vulnerability Evaluation (OCTAVE) process has been assisting organizations to assess their technical risks for the better part of two decades, and the SEI has recently worked to update the process model to manage cyber risks in a manner that is consistent across an entire enterprise. FORTE focuses upon building an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) program for organizations with nascent risk management programs or improve upon existing programs to drive risk management with a process that spans the entire risk management life cycle from identification through closure.

Objectives

This course educates participants in the application of the OCTAVE FORTE process. The process consists of ten steps that identify, analyze, and respond to various threats to an enterprise. At the completion of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Apply principles of enterprise risk management to their daily activities
  • Describe and apply principles of risk management
  • Establish governance, risk appetite, and risk related policies that drive an enterprise-wide risk management program
