    Stephen Head - Director, IT Risk Advisory Services
    Managing cyber risks in today’s digital environment was already challenging enough, but now we are amidst a once-in-a-century event which is straining our ability to keep systems and data secure. Individuals with malicious intent are taking advantage of the current chaos to launch attacks and break down defenses already weakened by a myriad of impacts.

    These impacts include a reduction in available security staff; end point devices originally designed to operate inside a controlled environment are now operating outside of that protective environment; security initiatives are being deferred; and increased phishing attacks are preying on employee fears and lack of security awareness. Security and control professionals are doing their best to cope under adverse circumstances. They realize, however, that hitting the pause button on security initiatives and technical audits could lead to catastrophic security breaches jeopardizing critical business processes.

    This webinar will provide an overview of where we are currently, the challenges we are facing, and what organizations need to understand if they are to survive. You will hear:
    •How attackers are successfully taking advantage of the current crisis
    •What is happening today in many organizations that magnifies the problem
    •How to assess and reduce the risk posed by third party service providers
    •Practical ways to identify and mitigate the gaps putting your organization
    at risk
    •The 10 steps your organization needs to be taking right now

    Regardless of your industry, this session will provide practical advice on how to weather the storm, keep a challenging situation from becoming disastrous, and alert you to actions your organization can take right now to withstand these attacks and keep essential services running.

  • Assessing Risk for Smaller Companies Recorded: Apr 21 2020 62 mins
    Christopher Fejko and Laurence Talley, Experis Finance
    Organizations are under pressure to be effective in identifying and managing the risks they face – financial, operational, regulatory, social, ethical, crisis, and environmental.

    The impact of risk on small and middle market companies is certainly more acute and these companies are often less able to absorb the impact of realized business peril. Still, many small to middle market companies are challenged to justify the cost benefit of allocating resources and time to an enterprise-wide risk management program. Even progressive companies that have adopted enterprise risk management (ERM) programs struggle to create mature ERM practices despite the fact that the volume and complexity of risk is increasing.

    This webinar will describe the benefit of developing an enterprise-wide risk management program. We will describe a pragmatic approach for promoting a risk management culture and executing risk assessment activities by exploring the following:
    •Aligning your ERM methodology with the newly released COSO Enterprise Risk Management Framework
    •Small and Medium Market approach to ERM and risk management agenda
    •Explaining the difference between Enterprise Risk Management and Enterprise Risk Assessment
    •Executing Enterprise Risk Assessment methodology, scoring and reporting
    •Control gap assessment and remediation

    Whether or not you have created a formal ERM program, this session provides practical advice and consideration for managing your organization's risk in a manner that’s scalable and tailored.

    Managing operational resilience in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging.

In response to the potential for a widespread pandemic, many organizations are working to create a plan for how essential business processes can be sustained in the face of a pandemic.

    This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the impact of a pandemic and explore the following:
    •How past pandemics provide us with a baseline for understanding the potential impact on an organization
    •Which elements of business continuity planning are most applicable to pandemic planning
    •Which elements of pandemic planning differ from traditional business continuity planning

    •What are some practical steps to begin implementing pandemic planning in your organization
    Whether or not you have a formal pandemic plan, this session will provide practical advice on what is involved in pandemic planning, how to incorporate it in your organization’s overall business continuity management efforts, and how pandemic planning can improve your organization’s ability to continue to operate during such a crisis.

Corporate audit has the data and knowledge of the business to evaluate organization maturity and agility to take on new initiatives and the related risks.
