Building Organizational Consensus: Using Risk Management to Gain Business Advantage

Chris Cronin, Principal Consultant, Halock

With so many potential risks it can be difficult to determine which an enterprise can live with, which it can't, and which it can cope with when reduced to an acceptable level of risk.

Determining an acceptable level of risk needs to be undertaken when there is a significant change in a business' activities within the environment. Examples are updating policies and training or improving security controls and contingency plans, the risks need constant monitoring to ensure the right balance between risk, security and profit.

In this session attendees will learn how to build a framework to define an acceptable level of risk.
