Date: 11th June, 2014

Time: 16.00 BST 11:00 EDT, 08:00 PDT

Understanding and managing risk in a retail credit card environment is a significant challenge. This webcast will explore how to apply The Open Group Risk Taxonomy Standard (O-RT) and Risk Analysis Standard (O-RA) to effectively measure risk in these environments. The analysis will examine a real threat scenario involving credit card skimmers, and will apply FAIR in a case study format.
