Integrated Risk Management: IT Risk Management


Integrated Risk Management

The focus was on the Integrated Risk Management theme world, among others, at the Cyber Security Summit Command Control in Munich from 20 to 22 September, 2018.

We offer keynote speeches on this theme world from international visionaries, high-caliber, interactive best-practice panels, exciting podium discussions and in-depth presentations from theorists and practitioners from the fields of data security, awareness, risk management, risk analysis, IT protection goals through to identity management.

Risk management was born from the realization that 100-percent cyber security is a pipe dream. Cyber security risks also need to be detected, assessed and contained where possible. This does not sound overly complicated, but it is anything but trivial in a company. Which data, systems and networks are essential for your company’s survival? Which data sources are particularly worthy of protection, and which of them should you share with others? Data-driven companies or operators of critical infrastructures require clear rules for this and monitoring that also functions when data leaves the perimeter and is processed in other places and systems.

For this reason, the Integrated Risk Management theme world addresses the following questions, for example

  • How can comprehensive risk management to protect critical infrastructures in which domino effects are preventable be guaranteed, despite the increasingly close networking and growing complexities?

  • How can risks and dangers for critical infrastructures be minimized for new forms of governance and risk management approaches?

  • Which risks, measures and new responsibilities have arisen as a result of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)?

  • How can cyber resilience be increased by early consideration of cyber risks right from the business development stage?

  • Which legal bases are required to guarantee continued legal conformity and security within the scope of integrated risk management?

  • How do digitalization, Industry 4.0 or IIoT influence integrated risk management?

The Integrated Risk Management theme world at Command Control 2018 was reflected in some of the presentations and discussions of the excellent summit agenda of including:

  • George Campbell is a management consultant focusing on company security performance measurement and analytics. He is a member, former president and Board member of the International Security Management Association as well as of ASIS (American Society for Industrial Security). In his presentation entitled “The Mission is not Cyber Security—It’s Enterprise Security”, he will explain how successful risk management and employee awareness also provide increased security in large companies.
  • The “Integrated Risk Management Response” will be presented by cyber security expert Peter Hacker in his hands-on keynote speech. He will focus on lessons learned and options for action in the event of cyber attacks. Hacker is co-founder of Distinction.Global, an independent monitoring initiative for cyber risks. He aims to provide impulses for the development of sustainable risk management solutions in his session.
  • Laura Jones is Senior Manager of Governance, Risk and Compliance. As the former head of the Cyber Security & Assurance team of a global manufacturer of consumer goods, she developed and implemented the first IT risk management program for the corporation. Find out more from her in the presentation “The CISO and CRO Relationship: Practical Perspectives to Strengthen the Alignment”, how CROs and those in charge of cyber security can better coordinate their efforts and in doing so play their part in ensuring that cyber security can improve business results and enable certain digital business models in the first place.
  • The basis of every functioning risk management is the assessment of different cyber risks and how you intend to address them. In his presentation entitled “How can a cyber risk maturity model drive the C-Suite agenda”, risk management expert and author Domenic Antonucci will explain that almost all the department heads in a company are also jointly responsible for risk management.

The questions in the area of Integrated Risk Management will also played an important role in the 30 or more other lectures and discussions at Command Control 2018. They were examined primarily from different perspectives and interpreted for a variety of company roles: CEOs, CIOs, CDOS, CROs, CSOs, CISOs, HR and production managers as well as heads of the legal department. All of them were receive comprehensive information tailored to their specific role from the Integrated Risk Management theme world.
