Security is becoming more and more important in the everyday operation of all businesses. It is a very current topic and is in news headlines continuously as many businesses make shortfalls. So what really is 'security' to a BA and what are the actual risks?


Leo discusses how security is usually included in the Business Analysis workflow currently and compare it to how he would manage security within a BA workflow if he were to redesign it from the ground up. He touches on mitigating risks and how to recognise what the actual risks are in the environment.


Ross adds his insight in to what the next generation are being taught about the issues and how the landscape will likely look in the future as new techniques and ideas are being pushed. He explains alternative, often less focused on aspects of security that affect you as an employee, as well as a BA and how real the risks are from those being ignored.
