Event Overview:


The proliferation of media scrutiny and rising consumer awareness of corporate failures featuring data and privacy breaches, compliance violations and business disruptions, have given executives and board members a greater and more pressing reason to get themselves more involved in governance, risk and compliance initiatives. However, risk management today is no longer just about avoiding major failures and business disruptions. A risk management strategy is not going to be a one-time effort, but instead requires a cultural shift in how the organisation conducts business. Cultivating a culture of risk management, in this day and age, is not a choice for your organisation anymore but rather is a critical factor towards the successful sustainability of the business in years to come.

This transformation does not happen overnight.

Transformation of the GRC concept from a compliance-focus to an objective and risk-focused orientation brings about a broader role of Business Risk Management. Business Risk Management represents the next evolution of the GRC paradigm—managing risk and making decisions (manage, accept, transfer, avoid risks) within the business. As organisations increasingly rely on digital processes to run their businesses, Digital Risk Management also comes into the picture, as the next step in enterprise risk and security.

Find out more about how to develop a strategy to bridge the gap between Business Risk Management and Digital Risk Management, towards a holistic and sustainable programme that can evolve and adapt with the organisation. The end goal would be to elevate both Business and Digital Risk Management as a business advantage—enabling your organisation to meet its strategic objectives with better and more predictable results.
