Part 4 – Risk Intro

This lesson discusses risk management. The instructor emphasizes that organizations should provide just

enough security. Essentially, figure out the value of what needs to be protected and look at the threats

and vulnerabilities then conduct a cost-benefit analysis to determine how much to spend. Having too

little security as well as too much security in place does a disservice to the business. This lesson also

covers the following risk related definitions:

1. Risk

2. Threat

3. Vulnerability

4. Exploit

5. Controls

6. Secondary Risk

7. Residual Risk

8. Fallback plan

9. Workaround
