Senior Information Risk Owner
Training Courses for all senior management with risk responsibilities
The role of the Senior Information Risk Owner (SIRO) is a key function and should be in place across all areas of the public sector, including but not limited to; Police, Government, Healthcare, Nuclear, Education, and suppliers to these organisations.
This is a very senior role within an organisation and is normally an additional set of responsibilities for a director or similar level. As such, SIROs may need additional support in understanding the role and its responsibilities. Developing a deep and wide understanding of Information Assurance in this way helps the organisation build resilience and support effective and valuable information sharing.
The management of risk within the Public Sector, and increasingly in its supply chain, is key to ensuring the security of information assets and in making informed decisions to prevent or respond in the event of an incident or breach.
Our 1-day SIRO training courses are designed for those working in the following areas and need a more developed understanding of their responsibilities:
A Pre-course study package (approximately 2 hours reading) is also provided explaining the principles of information assurance and information risk management, focusing on:
