Cyber security risk

Click here for a summary report on the event.

In an ever increasing digital world, the threats on our systems, information and infrastructure have never been more prevalent.

In this seminar we will hear from a number of speakers on current and emerging threats, and how we can effectively mitigate the cyber related risks of today and tomorrow.

We will also explore the rise of artificial intelligence and data analytics in risk management, and how we can use technologies such as robotic process automation to better inform our decision making.

The seminar will consider best practice for the management of cyber risk, and what practical steps we can take as risk practitioners to ensure that our organisations are adequately protected.

Speakers include:

  • Laura Hodgson, North West Regional Organised Crime Unit
  • David Morris, RSM
  • Mark Summers, IT Labs
  • Angus Rhodes, Ventiv Technology
  • Asam Malik, Mazars

Lunch and refreshments will be provided and the meeting is free of charge. We are very grateful to Mazars for sponsoring IRM North West activities in this way.

Managing Reputational Risk

Reputation is the general belief or opinion that other industries or people have about the company. It is how you are considered or labelled - good or bad. Protecting your company’s reputation and brand is a major challenge but I can be manageable through good risk management and business continuity. Reputational risk is not one single risk but the impact of a number of risks.
