Infographic Title: - Swiss Cheese Model for Defining Controls

This infographic covers the concept of Swiss Cheese Model, which can be useful when defining controls to manage risks. The model assumes that every control will have some deficiencies and hence multiple controls are required to effectively manage a risk. It is important to think about the order of the controls to ensure that the deficiencies in one control is not same as deficiencies in subsequent control.


Infographic Title: - Controls May Deteriorate Over Time

This infographic covers the concept of control effectiveness deteriorating over time, if they are not periodically reinforced. E.g. If an organisation has a control to train all employees on the Ethics Policy when they join the organisation, employees may forget about the content of such policy few weeks or months after the training. So to ensure that employees are aware about the policy content, it may need to require all employees to participate in training on the policy - every year.
