We are all in the risk business. No risk, no business. The biggest risk points are usually where the biggest opportunities lie to better meet your strategic objectives, enable and drive growth, improve reputation management and confidence in decision-making — and face fewer surprises.
A strong proactive risk management culture enables an organization to be more nimble, adaptable, and change-ready. On this panel discussion webinar we will address some of the key steps your organization can take to strengthen your risk management culture now and fuel business growth, including how to:
- Ask the right questions to accurately assess the risks and put plans and controls in place to mitigate them.
- Drive enterprise-wide accountability to break down silos.
- Give your employees appropriate training to enable them to take ownership of risks and identify and manage them more effectively.
- Develop communications plans for when events negatively affect perception of your organization.
- Leverage the opportunities that align to your strategic goals.
Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe, and for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. In 2015 he went independent and currently provides cyber security risk consultancy services to a wide range of public and private companies. Colin has presented on Information Security at major events around the world, and has published a number of papers on security.
