Risk Awareness: A healthy way to assessing and managing risks in Computer System Lifecyle

Risk awareness is an essential aspect of assessing and managing risks in the computer system lifecycle. It involves developing a culture of identifying and mitigating risks at every stage of the system's development, deployment, and operation.

By implementing healthy risk awareness practices, organizations can better assess and manage risks throughout the computer system lifecycle. This leads to more secure and reliable systems, which in turn can help to minimize the potential for downtime, and other compliance incidents.

In this ‘workshop’ style event, attendees will discuss and learn from expert instructors and other attendees how to approach the four phases in a computer system lifecycle, with a risk-based mentality, to guide appropriate and efficient computer system validation requirements.
