April’s awareness & training topic is assurance
Assurance is about knowing,
being sure or certain
of something – not just the
confident state of mind
but the activities that
achieve it … or fail to do so
Assurance involves checking and testing to verify and confirm or refute claims or beliefs, thereby gaining confidence and engendering trust. The strong link between assurance and information risk management makes this a novel yet fascinating area to explore through the awareness program,
more relevant to than perhaps you might think.
Assurance turned out to be a more complicated and involved topic than we anticipated touching on testing, audits, trust, safety, information risk, fraud
and more. It has been interesting, though. I hope NoticeBored subscribers will find value in the different perspective it brings to information security,
and on business: assurance is relevant to the organization's brands and relationships, essential in fact for long term survival and prosperity.
