11:40 AM Operational Risk Management: Understanding the Future of Digital Threats with the Department of Premier and Cabinet to Better Prepare for the Future

It is estimated that about 8% of organisations are currently using purpose built Governance, Risk and Compliance software as a way to enhance risk capability. However, with organisations depending on technology, the risk is higher. This session will explore:

  • Understanding the latest threats in Cyber and Digital Risks within the organisation
  • How to manage an operational risk environment to reduce costs and bring value to the organisation
  • How to coordinate pre-planned responses to effectively combat digital threats within the operational risk environment

1:20 PM PANEL DISCUSSION: Managing the Digital and Cyber Landscape to Better Equip Organisations in this Digital Era

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.
