Information Security Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning (HL947S)

Information Security Risk Management and Business Continuity Planning (HL947S)

COURSE OVERVIEW

As we’ve learned, Information Security is ultimately about protecting the assets most crucial to your business through preserving the Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability of your information. In this 3-day course, IT professionals and security officers learn to assess and manage risk in their organization and plan for the unexpected.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Risk management includes recognizing the assets key to your business success, documenting known threats and their likelihood, calculating the impact of a potential breach and implementing specific controls to avoid breaches or minimize the impact if any occur. Further, for those assets, you identify processes to recover from a breach, and explicitly recognize the remaining risk that you choose to accept.

Business continuity and disaster recovery planning extends this by responding when the unexpected happens and preparing to continue conducting business as usual, and as quickly as possible with as little impact on day to day operations. When disaster strikes, how much will it affect your company? Your reputation? Your customers?

In this course, you learn to identify and evaluate risk to your highest priority assets, and also how to design, implement and maintain effective, risk treatment controls.

In today’s large enterprises, the wireless network is expanding both in size and complexity. Planning and designing wireless networks is often oversimplified, but many factors must be taken into account, including RF coverage, access point placement, number of users, number of guests, and signal strength, among other variables. The HP Enterprise Wireless Networks course teaches students how to use HP RF Planner to overcome wireless network design challenges. Security is also a critical factor. The number one concern for the CIO’s with regard to wireless network implementation is security. This course goes into great detail on how to secure an HP Networking wireless solution from security threats using appropriate policies to ensure proper implementation of security standards.

What is new?

The HP Enterprise Wireless Networks course has been redesigned to focus on new solutions and more advanced topics. The new course is based on HP MSM solutions, whereas the previous version focused on the HP A-Series wireless products and solutions. The topics covered in the new HP Enterprise Wireless Networks course can be found in the Course Objectives section.

AUDIENCE

HP Partners, customers and employees who design, implement, and support enterprise level wireless network solutions based on HP MSM wireless products and solutions, including systems engineers, systems designers, customer IT staff, HP services field and call center support engineers.
