Threat, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (TRVA) Course

The Threat, Risk and Vulnerability Assessment (TRVA) has become one of the most integral elements of security risk management. Too often, security decisions are made without a clear understanding of the threat, and, vulnerabilities that impact a business and its assets. This course has been developed to allow delegates to gain an insight and a better understanding of the latest security planning and assessment concepts and solutions. The course will address and define Threat and Risk; what they are and how they affect security operations and assessment. It will define and assess Vulnerability, and how Risk, Threat and Vulnerabilities are intrinsically linked when mitigating risk. By constructing an integrated security approach; physical, technological and human elements of security, the course will provide tools and methodologies for understanding critical Threat, Risk and Vulnerability aspects, allowing delegates to take an effective approach towards security
