IoT Security, more than just a "Thing" Is an IoT device really a smart device?

In this presentation, you will get an insight into what an IoT device is and the complex infrastructure needed to operate it.

After that, we'll get into the depths! We will look at the IoT attack surface using real industry cases.

To scan such complex environments for their security, the wizlynx group applies the penetration testing method. We will have a look at the different reports and examples. Afterwards, wizlynx will demonstrate a life hack on an IoT device.

Enterprise-wide Risk Aggregation

Graeme Keith and Pascal Busch present their jointly developed and so far unprecedented risk aggregation approach. Next to the ability to manage risks along the impact chain and in the context of objectives, the approach stands out through simplicity and accessibility from a user perspective as it allows for qualification as well for quantification but doesn't compromise on the fidelity of the global risk model.

How Our Natural Risk Dispositions Out-smart Process

Risk is about decision making and decision making is influenced, in all of us, by our natural risk dispositions. These are derived from the interaction between Cognition (reason) and Emotion (feelings). The Risk Type Compass divides the full spectrum of risk dispositions into eight reliably distinguishable Risk Types that define a person’s risk awareness, their reaction to risk and the level of risk that they are comfortable with. Designed originally for the finance sector and used now in establishing a clients ‘risk appetite’, in coaching traders, developing hedge funds, investment advisory boards and the board rooms of organisations, the RTC applies equally to H&S situations. It supports a risk management style that fosters trust, co-operation and mutual respect. After 50 years of HSE there is a seemingly unmovable ‘rump’ of risk incidents that elude us. The ‘elephant in the room’ has been our insistence on ‘one size fits all’ risk management processes. Rather than fighting Nature in search of blind obedience, taking Nature into account and recognising that H&S demands and requirements can fruitfully be managed in ways that support and encourage personal responsibility - and without any compromise in terms of the required safety behaviours.

How to ensure an efficient global action when risk management, emergency response, crisis management and business continuity are managed silos?

A real corporate's challenge to solve as data and reporting needs are increasing and burdening the work from the shop floor. How about the balance between quantitative vs qualitative data at various organisation levels such as corporate, country or site. In this session we will adress resilience seen as a fashionable word or an effective way to have a continuum from emergency response, crisis management and business continuity. Ultimately, decide with us if it is just paperwork for corporate or proper governance and team work?

Business continuity planning in the public sector – the Geneva example

The COVID-19 pandemic has violently recalled to all organizations worldwide the importance of business continuity plans. Despite the heavy impact of the crisis on our lives and economies, the pandemic has raised awareness in this area, thus allowing professionals to give a boost to the development of continuity measures to protect their companies' core business. How does a Swiss public administration implement business continuity management? Is it realistic to embark in this journey, considering the large variety of services it delivers to the population? This session presents the approach of Etat de Genève and provides insight on challenges and opportunities as well as practical examples.

Is "risk management" broken and can or should we fix it?

This session will tackle the question of integrated risk management in organisations and the fact that more and more experts shy away from the term "risk management". Instead they use "decision making", "value management", "risk culture" and the like to tell their story, Anxiously avoiding the term "risk management", as this is not always properly understood by "organisations" and their managers.

Cybersecurity: Are your employees part of the solution or part of the problem?

"Employee behavior is a major component of a company's defense against and response to cyber risks. It is also a key component of a company's vulnerability. We have investigated employee attitudes towards cyber risks using deep metaphors elicitation to understand subconscious drivers, developed a program to address these drivers and created a diagnostic tool to assess vulnerabilities before and after intervention. In the session we will present the results of these efforts and discuss implications for the audience."

Data, Risk Management & Insurance in the 21st Century

Data has always been at the heart of risk management and insurance. With the acceleration of large-scale events (i.e. natural disasters, cyber-attacks, …) good data (current, complete, consistent) is becoming critical both from a risk exposure management perspective and an underwriting perspective. What does it mean for risk managers? What are the contributions of the stakeholders (insureds, brokers, insurers) in the data collection, cleaning, augmentation, analysis process?

How to Mature Risk Management in your Organization

The United Nations Risk Management Forum is an inter-agency group that has collectively developed guidance to assist UN organizations to ‘move the needle’ on their risk maturity. But how can organizations know where best to focus their limited risk management resources? For example, what if you have great risk IT systems, but underdeveloped risk culture? This topic presents the Forum’s open source risk management maturity model, its six dimensions, as well as the checklists and guidance that underpin it. Together, they can help your organization assess the current risk management capabilities and come up with effective and concrete plans of action.

COVAX: the risky business of managing pandemic risk

In July 2020, Gavi became the legal entity to administer the COVAX Facility, a global mechanism to pool resources and demand for COVID-19 vaccines with the goal of accelerating the availability of and equitable access to safe and efficacious vaccines. At its core, the COVAX Facility is a risk-management mechanism – reducing risk for countries concerned about failing to secure access to vaccines and reducing risk for manufacturers concerned about investing without assured demand. Setting up and running the COVAX Facility is not without risk itself however, and continues to require navigating uncharted territory at unprecedented speed and scale in a dynamic, competitive and uncertain external environment. Risks dynamically shift from upstream procurement and supply to downstream allocation and delivery risks in developing countries. This talk will share how agreeing with stakeholders on risk appetite and robust risk management has been and continues to be vital to ensure that poor countries are not left behind, and the world does not continue to be disrupted by the pandemic – as no one is safe until everyone is safe.

How can we strengthen an organization's operational health and its resilience?

Crisis Management, Business Continuity Management, Emergency Response, ISO Certifications, teams' training and more. All these topics fall under one umbrella: an organization's health.
Our experience shows that if an organization is "operationally healthy" before a disruptive event takes place, it will bounce forward when the disruption hits. It's all about being proactively prepared. In this session, we will explore the benefits of a holistic and structured approach, how to build bridges with your stakeholders to better manage operational risks, how to leverage tangible and intangible capabilities and last, the importance of "resilience as a culture".
