Does You Have A Risk Management Program?

In this hour-long webinar, cybersecurity expert  David Willson (LinkedIn profile) will explain why you should.

In light of recent breaches at Target, Nieman Marcus, Michaels, Yahoo, and a growing list of others, we’re learning that FBI Director Mueller was right when he said getting breached is not a matter of if, but when.

While having a risk management program may not prevent a breach, it can certainly lower the risk of one, ensure compliance, and reduce or even eliminate your liability if a breach does occur, enabling you to recover quickly and to protect your reputation.

You will learn:

  1. What risk management is
  2. What a risk assessment is and how to perform one
  3. Why both are important
  4. What a risk management program can do for your organization
  5. What to include in a risk management program
  6. How to train your workforce on a risk management program

Beyond explaining the importance of a risk management program, David will tell you how to implement one, including conducting a basic risk assessment, policies you’ll need, and training your workforce.

Agile project management can bring significant value to an organization’s software projects. But it can also bring a great deal of misunderstanding and confusion for upper level managers used to the governance stage gates of Waterfall.

How do you position Agile to upper level managers when they are looking for the certainty of dates and dollars:

  • When is it going to be done?
  • How much is it going to cost?

This presentation suggests ways of identifying that combination of scope, schedule, and cost that allows the team to deliver the benefits of Agile while still providing managers with the reliable estimates they want.

Presenter: Dave Caccamo PMP, (LinkedIn profile) has three decades of experience in engineering, economics and project management. With a BSc from the United States Naval Academy and a Masters of Economics from North Carolina State University, Dave has demonstrated time and again his ability to make complex business and engineering concepts understandable to executives, managers and technicians through his fundamental modeling of subject matter.

Duration: 1 Hour Credits: 1 PDU Category B – Free PDU
Note: NetObjectives is an REP ( 3045) but this opportunity is a Category B PDU.

This Session discusses Net Objectives’ approach to Agile, which is about fast delivery of business value in a predictable, repeatable manner.

If you are an executive or you’ve talked to executives about Agile and got little interest from them, this webinar is designed for you.

Agile is really about the quick delivery of the most important business value in a consistent, repeatable, predictable manner. It is not about iterations, teams, co-location, or any of the ways it may be implemented.

This talk describes Agile from a business perspective and explains how you must drive your approach to Agile to be most effective.

We call it business driven software development. It involves identifying the most important value to deliver, how to allocate your capacity to deliver it.

Presenter:  Alan Shalloway (Linkedin Profile@alshalloway) is the founder and CEO of Net Objectives. With 40 years experience, Alan is a thought leader in Lean, Kanban, PPM, Scrum and agile design. He is the author of Design Patterns Explained: A New Perspective on Object-Oriented Design, Lean-Agile Pocket Guide for Scrum Teams, Lean-Agile Software Development: Achieving Enterprise Agility, and Essential Skills for the Agile Developer: A Guide to Better Programming and Design. Alan is a co-founder and board member for the Lean Software and Systems Consortium.
