  • Norman Marks on Making Business Sense of Technology Risk
    Norman Marks on Making Business Sense of Technology Risk
    Norman Marks, CPA, CRMA, Author, Evangelist and Mentor Recorded: Nov 27 2018 59 mins
    Traditional approaches to technology risk lead to assessing it as 'high', 'medium or 'low'. But how do you know whether it makes business sense to take the risk or invest scarce resources into addressing it? Is it better to spend money on people and tools to mitigate cyber risk or to invest in a new product or marketing campaign?

    In this webinar, Norman Marks will share his thoughts on this challenge. He’ll talk about:

    -Why it’s necessary to express technology-related risk in business terms
    -Technology-related risk is just one of the business risks that need to be considered in making a decision
    -How, even a moderate risk, can take you over a 'tipping point'
    -Who should be involved in assessing technology-related risks
    -How to communicate technology-related risks to the board and top management

  • How to Thrive When Your Vendors Aren't
    How to Thrive When Your Vendors Aren't
    James S. DeGraw, Partner, Ropes & Gray LLP (Corporate Technology Group) Recorded: Oct 10 2018 63 mins
    It’s likely you’ve been wondering if you’ve got the right vendor risk management program in place. The fact is if your vendors breached your company data, you’re liable, and your program is lethal.

    Many factors go into understanding the risk of doing business with your vendors—where will your company’s data be physically located and how access to it will be managed, what’s in your vendor’s previous audits and what does their cyber strategy look like.

    But one thing is certain: When your vendors are at risk, your business is at risk, impacting your entire organization’s ecosystem along with long-lasting legal consequences.

    Over the next few months, we’ll be taking a fresh perspective on vendor risk management that’s perfectly geared for you wherever you are in the VRM lifecycle.

    Our first event is a game-changer. A live webinar on Wednesday, October 10 at 2:00pm EDT featuring Jim DeGraw, a partner in Ropes & Gray’s corporate technology group. DeGraw regularly provides data incident crisis management counseling, leads investigations into potential data breach events, advises clients on establishing and conducting assessments of information security and data handling governance programs.

    DeGraw will walk you through the disruption and evolution of VRM: regulatory, demographic, technological, current events, and the role digital and the global economy play in these vendor risk changes.

    Find out how you can thrive when your vendors aren’t.

  • Norman Marks on the Convergence of Compliance and Risk
    Norman Marks on the Convergence of Compliance and Risk
    Norman Marks, CPA, CRMA, Author, Evangelist and Mentor Recorded: Aug 14 2018 59 mins
    The ‘Yield’ road sign is a great example of the intersection of compliance and risk. The universal requirement for ‘Yield’ or ‘Give-way’ is defined as the following:

    The requirement that a driver shall “give way” to other vehicles means that he must not continue or resume his advance or maneuver if by so doing he might compel the drivers of other vehicles to change the direction or speed of their vehicle abruptly.

    Individuals are left to their own interpretation of this definition, from performing a prolonged stop to accelerating at the sign. Enforcement is difficult. And so it is with the numerous ways that Compliance and Risk must coordinate and collaborate within your organization.

    Norman Marks is a firm believer in taking a risk management approach to the business objective of operating in compliance with both laws and regulations and society’s expectations, even when they aren’t reflected in laws and regulations.

    Share your thoughts with Marks on a live webinar, August 14 at 2:00pm EDT when he’ll discuss his point of view about the practical application of the concept of risk appetite and its impact on influencing the day-to-day taking of risk.

  • The Mindset of Risky Business in the World of Finance
    The Mindset of Risky Business in the World of Finance
    Hersh F. Shefrin, Ph.D., Economist and Pioneer of Behavioral Finance Recorded: Jun 25 2018 61 mins
    Nobody likes to talk about it. It makes people feel…uncomfortable. I’m talking about the human side of risk.

    The way we think, act on and communicate about risk, plays a major part on how we would manage a cyber breach for instance. Consider Facebook, Equifax, Target, Uber and so on. And no one is better positioned to influence the outcomes on security and risk management than you.

    We’re not talking about making a sweeping cultural change enterprise-wide. You can make a slight change in your thinking about risk that just might help you avoid your next data breach or better communicate a phishing scam.

    Our first in a webinar series tackles the mindset that all of us inherently possess around risk and its impact on information security issues. The workshop kicks off on June 25 at 2pm EDT featuring Hersh Shefrin, one of the pioneers of behavioral finance. Shefrin holds the Mario L. Belotti Chair in the Department of Finance at the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University and has published scholarly articles in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics and Review of Financial Studies.

    Don’t worry…you don’t have to slip into your Birkenstock’s for this. Just sign up and listen.

    Technology is no longer the exclusive domain of the IT department. Norman Marks thinks we should be talking about technology as a source of risk rather than just IT. What do you think?

    Share your thoughts with Marks on a live webinar, June 5 at 2:00pm EDT, when he’ll discuss his point of view that IT is more than just a department. It’s made up of people, processes and addresses risks that typically arise from failings in those processes through the operation of IT general controls (ITGC).

    From audit risks to cyber risks, Marks will help you understand that it may be necessary to take more risks than you might be comfortable with.
