Wednesday, July 12th, 2017 at 2:00PM EST

Register Button

Risk managers are charged with ensuring transparency, alignment, and forward looking views throughout the organization. The way this is achieved is through risk assessments.

A successful enterprise risk assessment process can be a powerful tool for board and management level strategic decision making by connecting business activities to goals and identifying the risks that threaten to derail these strategic objectives. An unsuccessful risk assessment is little more than a form over substance activity that lacks context and actionable results.

The key is being able to compare operational risk assessment information across functions and levels while keeping one comprehensive risk picture, register for our complimentary webinar:

5 Steps for Better Risk Assessments

Presenter: LogicManager CEO, Steven Minsky
Mr. Minsky is a recognized speaker and a certified instructor on the subject of ERM.

In this webinar each of the following top 5 best practices will be reviewed with step-by-step tutorial with risk assessment examples on how to achieve them from where most organizations are currently:

  • Taking a root-cause approach
  • Standardizing assessment scale and criteria with risk assessment templates
  • Linking risks to controls
  • Connecting risks to strategic goals
  • Embedding risk assessments in everyday activities

Who will benefit?

Risk Professionals:
Many risk professionals have recently been given an enterprise risk management role, which is now just one of many of their responsibilities. Often these new responsibilities do not come with new resources. As expectations for actionable results from risk assessment activities steadily increase from both inside and outside or organization, risk managers will learn how to adopt best practices so that risk assessments can be compared and utilized cross-functionally for more accurate and actionable risk management. You will also learn how to apply these best practices to streamline your non-ERM areas of responsibility, such as insurance management, to gain more time for expanding these best practices to other areas in your enterprise.

Compliance Professionals:
As the number of regulations increase and change, so do the risk assessments required as part of the compliance process. All risks to compliance are not equal in terms of impact, likelihood and effectiveness of current control activities. Attendees will learn how to objectively and systematically prioritize which regulations need attention from compliance risk assessments.

How to Manage Your Cybersecurity Risks

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017 at 2:00PM EST

Cyber breaches and attacks are preventable.

Unfortunately, most organizations react to external threats by unnecessarily spending millions on technology solutions, without addressing root-cause issues. For example, a staggering 63% of data breaches are caused by weak or reused employee and vendor passwords. This common vulnerability is a governance problem, not a technology problem.

It’s possible to prevent cyber mishaps and protect your company with an integrated approach. To solve this challenge, we invite you to attend our complimentary webinar:

Presenting Risk Management to the Board: Current and Future Trends

Register Button

Boards of directors are under more pressure than ever to have effective risk management systems in place. Because of this, boards are looking to their risk managers to see where their companies stand in terms of risk. The questions for risk managers are:

What should you present to the board today?
The challenge is in assembling information across functions and levels, while keeping one comprehensible picture of risk for the board. How are you going to objectively prioritize or rank your organization’s risks? Are you able to link operational risks to the strategic goals they impact? How do you demonstrate the effectiveness of mitigation activities?

What are future trends to prepare for?

What is the role and accountability for 10K/10Q risk factor disclosures? What do private companies need to know?

How to Implement Risk-Based Compliance

Register Button

Compliance isn’t just about legal requirements. It’s now considered a subset of risk, not a separate discipline, which means it needs to be approached with the same strategies and criteria. As time goes on, staying on top of compliance doesn’t get any easier. The regulatory environment is constantly shifting, which makes change management an imperative component of your program.

This complementary webinar will walk you through the best practices regarding compliance change management, the foundation of a healthy program, and implementing and maintaining a risk-based compliance approach at your organization.

How to Integrate Risk & Governance Areas

Register Button

Risk and governance activities should provide a structure through which corporations set and pursue their objectives.

However, information on risk, performance, and compliance is often gathered on different spreadsheets, word docs, and systems across departments.

Traditional functions like ERM, Finance, Vendor Management, Compliance, Information Security, Audit, Business Continuity, Policy Management, and others all rely on common information. However, using different methods and tools across silos makes it hard to even locate, let alone compare and aggregate, this data in a meaningful way.

Operating in functional silos without a shared process and risk language makes it hard to objectively identify, assess, and evaluate the most critical threats to strategic goals. It also leads to unnecessarily duplicative activities and subjective decision making, which makes makes the process inefficient and ineffective.

To solve these challenges, we invite you to view our complimentary webinar:

How to Integrate Risk & Governance Areas

Presenter: LogicManager CEO, Steven Minsky.
Mr. Minsky is a recognized speaker and a certified instructor on the subject of ERM.

 

In this webinar, we walk through the process of building a standardized structure, or risk taxonomy, to integrate risk and governance areas while realizing the following benefits:

  • Manage complexity where it matters
  • Objectively prioritize existing activities with standardized risk assessment scales and criteria
  • Identify unnecessary duplication and rework
  • Satisfy multiple requirements with existing activities
  • Objectify conclusions to enable issue escalation
  • Gain a panoramic view over disparate controls and tests

Meaningful Metrics: Using ERM to Inform Strategy

Register Button

Risk managers have a lot on their plate. From collecting and presenting important data, to engaging employees throughout an organization, it can be hard to bring all these activities together. Gaining support throughout an organization is crucial to the success of an ERM program, but communicating value and opportunities is a challenge many risk managers face.

Risk management metrics are tools companies can utilize to achieve their strategic goals and move their organization in the right direction. Best practice metrics are a way to monitor the risks a company faces, while ensuring business objectives are achieved. The right metrics also provide an effective way to motivate and engage employees throughout an organization, so where should you start?

The Challenge of Third Party InfoSec Risk

Register Button

The problem of ensuring information security has become ever more challenging as both volume of information and use of third parties who touch critical information has grown. Cyber attacks are said to have cost businesses more than $400 billion last year alone and it is estimated that two thirds of those attacks were perpetrated on and through third parties handling company or customer data.

Managing the process of verifying, remediating where necessary and monitoring the effectiveness of third party controls demands the use of sophisticated and mission-designed technology. In this webinar, we’ll define the key steps of the process and identify what the future holds for third party information security management.

5 Steps towards an Actionable Risk Appetite

Register Button

Risk appetite and tolerance are two of the most controversial topics in the enterprise risk management field today. While some managers see value, most struggle to make risk appetite and tolerance more than vague, high-level statements that do not relate to day-to-day risk management activities.

Appetite and tolerance may be important to the board and senior leadership, but the measures are meaningless unless they are made actionable within a robust ERM framework.Whether your program is mature or just getting off the ground, making risk appetite and tolerance actionable will help to improve the direction and efficiency of your ERM program.

 

To solve these challenges, we invite you to register for our webinar:

5 Steps towards an Actionable Risk Appetite

Presenter: LogicManager CEO, Steven Minsky.
Mr. Minsky is a recognized speaker and a certified instructor on the subject of ERM.

 

In this webinar, attendees will learn more about each of these statements. We will also review our top 5 best practices with tutorials and examples on how to achieve them from where most organizations are currently.

Topics Covered

  • Crafting enhanced risk appetite and risk tolerance statements
  • Aligning appetites and tolerances with organizational goals and business models
  • Collecting the right risk metrics for forward-looking reports
  • and more!
