Do you know what your organization’s current state of Risk-based Security Management (RBSM) is?

A 2012 report by the Ponemon Institute reveals that 77 percent of organizations express significant commitment to RBSM, yet barely more than half have a formalized approach to it, and less than half have actually deployed any RBSM program activities.

Join us for this webcast, as Dwayne Melancon, CTO of Tripwire and Cindy Valladares present the study’s key findings: June 26, 2012 10:00 AM PT (1:00 PM ET).

Risk-based security management (RBSM) is rapidly gaining acceptance globally as an essential practice to improve the organization’s security posture and optimally allocate resources.

RBSM is defined as applying rigorous and systematic analytical techniques to evaluate the risks that impact an organization’s information assets and IT infrastructure. Tripwire and Ponemon Institute teamed up to research the state of risk management and came up with some interesting findings. 

In this webcast, Dwayne Melancon, CTO of Tripwire and Cindy Valladares, Product Marketing Manager, discuss key findings of this study, including:

  • A high commitment to risk management by the majority of respondents to, yet little action to back it up—in other words, not walking the risk talk.
  • A greater likelihood for those with a formal approach to risk management to walk the talk.
  • A tendency to do well with implementing the appropriate preventive controls while neglecting to implement sufficient detective controls.
  • Differences in what registered high on the “Security Fright Index” depending on the level of the respondent’s role in the organization.
  • A comparison risk management perceptions and practices in comparison to the US, UK, Germany and the Netherlands.

Register today, and then join us to learn what you should be doing to ensure you walk the RBSM talk to improve your organization’s security posture: June 26, 2012 10:00 AM PT (1:00 PM ET).
