Quantifying risk and input into decision making

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

The purpose of risk analysis is to provide guidance on what decisions to take in the face of uncertainty and risk. The decisions might be about how to control individual risks, improve the chance of success of the corporate strategy, bring a project in on time and budget, or chose the right investment. In all these areas, quantitative risk analysis provides far greater clarity than other, more qualitative methods, but many risk managers advise that it is too difficult to use or can only be applied to financial exposures. They are mistaken. My talk explains the basic techniques involved in quantitative risk analysis used in business, all of which are within reach of anyone with high school mathematics, and I demonstrate how the much richer information provided by quantitative risk analysis leads to better decision-making.

Business Resilience as a Service

Day 2 | November 27, 2020

Whilst Business Continuity has added enormous value as an industry to organisations across the globe for decades, it must continue to adapt at pace to meet the future Resilience Challenge. For me Business Resilience is not just a risk, incident/crisis management or Recovery function that is used “By Exception”. Business Resilience is a “Service” that must form a part of the everyday operation of the organisation alongside other risk functions such as Cyber Security & Corporate Security, therefore offering one compelling Resilience Channel for colleagues/employees that is there to assist them and enable them do business whilst also supporting them when things go wrong.

How do we do this?
- Never before have we had access to so much data & so many digital solutions, therefore, we must all look to embrace these tools to “bring our programmes to life” and demonstrate the value proposition that Business Resilience offers.
- Providing leadership teams with regular quantitative & qualitative analysis that demonstrates the return on investment that our Resilience programmes are offering to our organisations on a daily basis. This alongside digital Resilience Programmes that say goodbye to old fashioned paper based policy/procedure heavy programmes that are rarely engaged with and replacing them with digital tools that they already use in their day to day life

The human factor in crisis management

Day 2 | November 27, 2020

For Plato (428– 348 BC) « It is not the walls that make the city but the men ». Technology is overwhleming in all aspect of our life and profession including in crisis management. But despite the importance of digital tools, teamwork and leadership are essential in crisis management. In one word, human factor is still the paramount component of crisis management. How can human factor affect crisis management ? And how can it be optimized?

Neuro Management, a disruptive and innovative approach to the challenges raised by artificial intelligence

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

Artificial intelligence is generating cascading upheavals that challenge all social leaders in the new economy. The technical risks involved in deploying AI solutions are now identified and the market offers a large number of possible solutions. However, we can notice emerging new challenges, social and ethical, generated by a necessary cohabitation between AI solutions and their users. In addition to the apocalyptic scenarios announcing the end of Humanity, transhumanists stigmatize an inescapable reason to increase mankind’s skills with the capacity of machines. But recent discoveries in neuroscience point to another solution, involving the deployment of a collective brain within each company. Will the ultimate challenge therefore be managerial? In the visionary capacity of a leader who would know how to provoke an ethical symbiosis between the electronic speed of AI and the extraordinary plasticity of our biological brain? It is this exciting adventure and its exploratory solutions that certainly reveal the major challenge of neuro management.”

How to achieve Cyber Resilience: Integrating Cyber Security into Business Continuity Management

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

We are continually bombarded by the reality that our data, our networks, our devices and our identity are under constant scrutiny and threat of theft. The Cyber attacks have become so commonplace that we have built up an immunity to its danger. Ransomware has become the dominant threat to all sizes of institutions, especially municipalities and healthcare institutions. The persistence and innovation of the cyber terrorists has captured the focus of organizations around the globe. And while the efforts to block these attacks is appropriately focused on prevention, nonetheless attacks succeed. Just as business continuity has evolved into a multi-prong, integrated prevention and response to threats, so must cyber-resilience become the means by which we attack the entire cyber risk landscape.
This session will identify these threats, presenting actual cases and their consequences. It will also present the latest attempts to structure a prevention/response that is analogous to the evolution of business continuity management as the umbrella for reducing incidents and consequences of disruptions. The session will demonstrate the uniqueness of cyber attacks and also the process to integrate responses with existing processes.

ERM, 3 perspectives, one stage

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

Risk management is changing, as are the elements of risk management. One element is Enterprise Risk Management or ERM, where practical applications in organisations today range from a simple risk register and a heat-map of reporting key risks, over being a tool for deciding and monitoring the level of risk taking to being void and replaced by intelligent decision making. The three speakers have quite different views on ERM – and will discuss the pro’s and con’s of each their approach. The aim is to enlighten and challenge attendees perception and application of ERM.

Complexity or Complacency – where do you stand?

Day 1 | November 26, 2020

 

“Over budget, over time, under benefits, over and over again." Bent Flyvbjerg Why do we keep getting it wrong?
A common reason given is that teams – from client to supplier – simply couldn’t appreciate the complexity of what was being undertaken.
As projects get ever bigger, demanded quicker and with more complex engineering is this a reasonable excuse when, in parallel with the increase in project complexity, there is a comparable growth in the sophistication of tools to analyse and allow for these complexities? There are physical, societal and psychological barriers to their use and we may have to replace some currently accepted practices but the Risk Management community is perfectly placed to acknowledge the need, provide the rationale and then implement the new tool set. COVID has demonstrated that the unexpected can have catastrophic consequences. Risk Managers can build on this: what should we really be thinking about for tomorrow’s “unexpected” diversions? Will we be able to hold our hands up again and say we weren’t prepared?
Mike will use recent examples to provoke thinking and discuss “new” approaches to overcome false expectations and the latest tools to understand and manage complexity.
