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

the computer system lifecycle. It involves developing a culture of identifying
and mitigating risks at every stage of the system's development, deployment,
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.

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.
