9:10 am - 9:50 am Enterprise Risk Management Expectations for 2018 and Beyond

Pierre Skorich - Director Governance and Risk Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre
2017 saw the revised ISO31000:2017 guidelines released, but organisations are still struggling to make risk management work for them – in particular strategic risk management. Too often it becomes a tedious exercise in workshopping and filling out spread sheets that are not well used. It also becomes challenging to even create a simple shortlist of ‘top risks’ as it is only devised by very few people leading to critical details being missed. This session will explore how organisations can walk the line between simplicity and superficiality as well as move from a culture of ‘risk management compliance’ to one of ‘risk management value-add. In this session Pierre will examine:

  • Understanding how to use risk management theory to build good governance and manage complexity
  • How to develop innovative strategies to anticipate future strategic and operational risks
  • Analysing the future expectations of risk culture, risk appetite and risk maturity to ensure organisations are prioritising risk management
  • Gaining influence and traction with senior decision-makers

The Cyber Security Strategy was launched in 2016 as a way to promote an improved institutional cyber culture and raise awareness of cyber practice across government organisations and businesses. It is estimated that cyber attacks will leave the Australian economy exposed to a potential $16 billion damage bill over the next decade. This makes it imperative that organisations seek protection and management strategies from current and emerging digital and cyber risks. This session will explore:

  • Understanding the emerging changes within the digital and cyber landscape
  • How to implement tools and technologies to identify and respond to risks proactively
  • How to view cyber risks as an opportunity to improve risk management performance and optimise capital efficiency.
