Business Analysts and Cybersecurity
It is prevalent in the current digital world that information is the primary asset for organisations and the most vulnerable. Studies and researches highlight the fact that Cybersecurity incidents occur due to a lack of awareness. The landscape of technology is distributed across the globe increasing the information risk, exponentially and making the ecosystem more vulnerable for cyber-attacks, hence categorising security requirements as NFRs or confining them within the context of security teams is not enough.
In this session, we will be looking into real-life examples (security incidents) which will provide delegates with the necessary insights into the role that can be played by BAs in protecting information assets and make security to be part of everyday delivery for business analysts.
