CompTIA Executive Certificate in IT Security Business Development

CompTIA’s training for an Executive Certificate in IT Security Business Development prepares a solution provider in its evolution into a full business continuity service provider. Information technology security today is more about information and the people who exchange it in the course of business, and in transactions with their partners and customers.

The U.S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) has developed a threat modeling method called OCTAVE — Operationally Critical Threat, Asset, and Vulnerability Evaluation. Originally developed at Carnegie Mellon University in 2001 for the Dept. of Defense, OCTAVE models an approach to security preparation based on risk management analysis. This toolkit assembles this model in easy-to-follow stages, where you build the tools you need for your own organization and for your customers:

  • Impact Definitions clearly state varying levels of effects that security events may have on critical assets.
  • Threat identifications list the causes of potential events, with the help of our Threat Translation Guide.
  • Risk analyses prepare you to classify the impact of security events on business services.
  • Countermeasures offer options for risk mitigation, some which may be taken before events occur, such as implementing physical or administrative controls.

Workbooks for each of these vital risk management components will help you develop controls and guidelines that abide by tough, tested industry standards, and that may evolve over time. Download this valuable Executive Certificate toolkit now, and prepare to help your organization and your partners face an uncertain IT world with resilience and resolve.
