Video Description

This lesson focuses on mitigating risk by classifying data. In mitigating risk, it is very important to understand the value of your assets. We can verify the worst of assets by classifying data into the following categories:

  • Public Information
  • Internal use only
  • Confidential information
  • Sensitive data

The classification of data should indicate its value. This lesson also discusses threat matrices which uses a weighting system to visualize the value of data and the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) to assessing threats associating with certain technologies and classifies these threats into three groups: - Base Metric group

  • Temporal Metric Group
  • Environmental metric group
