Just how critical was your Criticality Assessment?

Thurs 9th October, 3:20pm

A quick criticality analysis at the start of a system, application, or process you undertake could save you quite a bit of time and trouble down the road. These days, apps make almost everything easier, including criticality assessments.

Taking 30 minutes out with the project’s owners before it begins could clarify the security requirements, and identify the possible threats that can do anything from interrupt a system to a total loss of data.

Stephen Coates gives an overview of good criticality assessments and the tools you can use to assure the best outcome of a project.
