The Rising Importance of Holistic Third-Party Risk Management
An Acuity Risk webinar in collaboration with IRM
Thursday September 30th | 2-3pm BST

Third-party/vendor risk management is essential to ensure that vendors do not become the weak link in your security chain. However, gaining visibility into supply chain risks is very difficult and organizations often rely on control self-assessment questionnaires in the belief that compliance with a standard or policy minimizes risk.

Furthermore, the threat of exposure from vendors/third parties has continued to grow, especially during the pandemic. This has been on the upswing for several years, but 27 percent of respondents to an early 2021 Deloitte survey said they had a "high-impact third-party risk incident".

Organizations should take a more objective, holistic and dynamic approach to third-party/vendor risk management. By monitoring what happens in practice, organizations can gain greater insights into vendor risk and in turn manage business exposure down to acceptable levels.

Join Acuity in partnership with the Institute of Risk Management to learn how, by maintaining a well-architected risk model you can easily create an always-on, holistic and accurate view of your supply chain and the vendors that represent the highest risk to your business.

‘Doing more with less’: The Benefits of Quantitative Risk Assessments
An Acuity Risk webinar in collaboration with IRM
On-demand until 26th November 2021

Boards and CEOs recognise the increasing importance of cyber security and risk management overall, according to a PWC survey of 3,249 business and technology executives – however, 26 percent will see budget cuts and 13 percent won’t see any change, so their security investments will have to be made prudently. To be certain they are making the right decisions, CISOs are seeing a need to quantify cyber risks.

By putting financial measurements on risk, an objective calculation can be used to provide reporting that is widely understood and evaluated based on management’s tolerance for risk. Done properly, these insights will allow security and risk professionals to speak the language of business leaders, thus aiding decision-making and optimising security investments.

Join this Acuity Risk Management partner webinar with the Institute of Risk Management to learn how quantitative methods for risk assessments and cost/benefit analyses for cyber security investments can help your organisation determine how to gain the best ROI.

Practical Data-Analytics for Project Risk & Contingency Management in Engineering & Construction Sector
A Palisade webinar in collaboration with IRM
On demand until September 9th 2021

The Engineering & Construction sector has definitely learned from its past recessions and the recent COVID-19 and is now well-positioned to drive changes that can help to address its long-standing biggest challenges, the productivity and on time and budget delivery.

In addition, as infrastructure projects get bigger and more complex with multi-facet interfaces, they are becoming inherently more risky. For the E&C sector, this trend means smarter approaches, connected technologies and an increase in associated investments are now critical to help firms realise new operational and project delivery efficiencies. New business models and collaborative type of contracts as well as an increase in M&A activities are further accelerating the shift towards data-driven risk management approaches.

By sharing key results of KPMG’s recent Future-Ready Index survey globally and in Australia – highlighting the scale of challenges ahead of the sector as well as the technologies with the highest adoption rates amongst the top 20% E&C firms, i.e. BIM (86%) and basic data analytics (83%) – in this presentation and through a couple of recent case studies, Pedram will illustrate how E&C companies can begin to embrace data solutions for better project risk management including integrated project controls, connected assurance from project to portfolio level, appropriate governance, predictive analytics and machine learning while establishing a foundation which is essential for their efficient and effective success in winning and delivering capital projects. While many are failing to fully adopt these and other vital capabilities, placing their future productivity, profitability and project delivery at risk, the key question is, “Are you, as a firm or as an individual, ready for the future?”.

As seen in the business press every day, embedding risk management into an organisation to the extent that it reliably makes a difference is a difficult task.
