Information Security and Risk Management Training By TONEX

Information Security and Risk Management Training Course Description

Information Security and Risk Management Training course helps you to understand a variety of topics in information security and risk management such as: introduction to information security, layers of security, threats and vulnerabilities in information security, concept of data and data security, risk modeling, risk management techniques, risk management components, and risk assessment techniques.

Information security is to defend and protect the vital information using the latest technology and defense strategies. Understanding risks, protecting the system security against risk and managing the risk in case of threats is one of the most important topics in cyber security.

By taking the TONEX information security and risk management training, you will understand the main concept of information security, network security and authenticity of the information as well as how to secure the components of the information system.

Learn about threats and vulnerabilities in information system such as environmental disasters, terrorist attacks, cyber vulnerabilities, cybercrimes, cryptographic attacks, code injection attacks, or denial of service attacks.

Learn about the data, data sharing methods, importance of data, and frequency of security incidents on important data and how to design safeguards for vital data.

Learn the principles of risk modeling, characteristics of risks, losses caused by risks, active and proactive risk models, and computer risk models.

Through this seminar, you will also learn about the main procedures to manage the risks, how to avoid risks, how to transfer the risk, controlling the risks, methods of disaster recovery plans (DRP), incident response plan, and cost benefit analysis (CBA).

The TONEX information security and risk management training also helps you discover the main component of risk management from identifying the risk, analyzing the risks, likelihood of the risk to controlling and developing the risk management techniques.

TONEX information security and risk management training includes many in-class activities including hands on exercises, case studies and workshops. During the information security and risk management training, students bring in their own sample work and projects and through our coaching, develop their own information security and risk management system.

Finally, the information security and risk management training will introduce you to the risk assessment techniques through which you can identify the risks, quantify them, analyze and estimate the risks in information system. At the end of the training session, risk management techniques and tools are discussed in detail.


The information security and risk management training is a 2-day course designed for:

  • All individuals who need to understand the concept of information security and risk management.
