Webinar: Risk and Opportunity - How to Safeguard Your Business

The treatment of Risk [and its bedfellow, Opportunity] can be classified in 3 areas: What we can control through mitigation, what must be accepted because there is nothing constructive that can be done and still stay in business, and what can be covered by insurance.

Mitigation can cover many areas. If the business model, for example, involves access to the internet, mitigation can be in the form of firewalls, anti-virus etc. and preventing the rogue employees from accessing questionable web-sites. However, even the most stringent precautions cannot be 100 percent effective, so the only real way to guard against hackers is not to go online. For many organizations today, this is not a practical option, therefore a certain degree of risk remains – this is termed “Risk Appetite”, what Top Management accepts in the way they do business. This ‘Risk’ provides a great Opportunity for those inclined to exploit the Risk – Risk and Opportunity are really the two sides of the same coin!
