Hi Folks… if you are in Ottawa on the 27th May and looking for training on Risk Management / Threat Risk Assessments, this is one I would encourage you to take a look at!

Join the High Tech Crime and Investigation Association (HTCIA) Ottawa Chapter, Thursday, May 27, 2010, for a one day training event on the subject of the Harmonized Threat Risk Assessment (HTRA) Methodology. This session is geared towards those who are interested in understanding the methodology used by today’s Security Experts when conducting Threat Risk Assessments. Following the organization of the Harmonized TRA Methodology:

  • Introduction;
  • Preparation Phase;
  • Asset Identification and Valuation;
  • Threat Assessment;
  • Vulnerability Assessment;
  • Calculation of Residual Risk;
  • Recommendations; and
  • Conclusion

Each of the key areas will be addressed at an introductory level providing workshop attendees the understanding of how the HTRA process works. For those attendees looking for a full “how to” program, details on a full four day technical course will be made available during the workshop.

Since the unification of Threat Risk Assessment methodologies (October 29, 2007), through a joint working group of the Communications Security Establishment (CSE), the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and the parallel User Focus Group the Harmonized Threat Risk Assessment (HTRA) Methodology has become the unified Canadian Standard for the assessment of threat and risk.

Familiarity and understanding of the HTRA Methodology will provide both security professionals and the general public the knowledge, skills and confidence to apply the HTRA principles, regardless of profession, in their everyday life.

Important Note: This training is not generally available to the private sector. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to gain greater familiarity with the HTRA. This very informative training session will be moderated by none other than Mr. John Clayton who was the co-chair of the joint CSE-RCMP working group responsible for the development of the HTRA Methodology!
