Welcome to Building an Information Risk Management Toolkit!

Welcome to Building an Information Risk Management Toolkit!

Thank you for joining Building an Information Risk Management Toolkit! Please take a few moments to read through the course welcome page and watch the welcome video. There is a lot of useful information there about the course. 

For now, you should plan to allocate between five and 10 hours per week on the course. There will be roughly one to two hours of lectures per week, as well as one or more readings most weeks. 

Additionally, there will be the following assessments and activities:

  • 2 Peer-graded Assignments worth 30 points each
  • 9 Weekly Quizzes worth 10 points each
  • 1 Final Quiz worth 30 points
  • Weekly Discussions in the Discussion Forums

There is no textbook, since the course is self-contained.

My goal for you is that by the end of the course you will have a strong understanding of the various ways in which you can approach risk management within an organizational context. Again, welcome, and I hope you enjoy this course!
