– The Business Analyst and Security Today
Date: Sep 16th, 2021
Speaker: Steve Blais, PMI-PBA, PMP
Topic: The Business Analyst and Security Today
Venue: Zoom Online
Ransomware, identity theft, cyber warfare, hacktivism, cybercrime, distributed denial of
service, data leaks, data compromises, and the list goes on. As our technology gets
more sophisticated, we open up new channels of access directly to the customers, and
more and more unsophisticated customers begin to use computers for their daily
business, there are more avenues and tax services for the malicious actors to attack our
computers at work and at home.
Ostensibly, security is everyone’s business. And especially the business analysts’
business. In reality, most people are not particularly security aware.
In this webinar Steve describes the present state of the insecure technological world and what
needs to be done to secure it. It also introduces approaches you as a business analyst
can take to improve your knowledge of security and ensure that the systems and
requirements you identify and design are implemented in a secure manner that provide
the maximum protection for your company and your associates.
