Security Congress Abstract
What is “reasonable” security? If you are breached and your case goes to litigation, you will be asked to demonstrate “due care.” This is the language judges use to describe “reasonable.” Organizations must use safeguards to ensure that risk is reasonable to the organization and appropriate to other interested parties at the time of the breach. This presentation references case law, regulatory oversight and the Center for Internet Security Risk Assessment Method (CIS RAM), with a discussion on the future implications of this approach toward defining reasonableness. CIS RAM is based on the Duty of Care Risk Analysis standard (DoCRA.org) and is recognized by attorneys, regulators and interested parties for its ability to demonstrate reasonable implementation of controls.
