|| IT Risk Management – What can go wrong, will go wrong.
|| John Mitchell, Managing Director, LHS Business Control
|| BCS, Southampton Street, London, 18:00 for 18.30 start
The management of IT risk has become of great importance due to the impact of regulatory compliance across the world. The London Stock exchange requires compliance with the principles defined in the Turnbull report whilst American companies must comply with Sarbanes-Oxley. The British Government requires all of its departments to practice risk management and imposes the same requirement on Local Government, the National Health Service and Housing Associations. Not all companies will face the same IT risks, but an understanding of the nature of IT risk and how such risks can be identified and categorised will be useful to any organisation. Simply identifying an IT risk is only part of the story. The management of the risk is of equal importance and this session will discuss the techniques that are available. The concepts of embedded monitors and early warning indicators will be discussed and how they fit into the overall IT risk management process.
