The Webinar

The focus 

The Information Risk webinar focused on how organisations in different industries perceive the risks to this strategic asset, and how they are approaching the management of information risk.

Date and Time 

November 20th 2013, 3.00 – 4.00 GMT.  Now available on demand.

What to expect 

Four expert speakers engaged in an informal discussion chaired by The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Denis McCauley for one hour.

Discussion topics included:

  • Where should responsibility for information risk management lie? Is the CIO the right person to oversee this? Does it need to escape the IT silo?
  • High profile cyber-attacks are bringing board-level focus to the topic. How can information risk professionals capitalise on this? What dangers are being overlooked?
  • How do businesses know which data is most valuable and which risks should be prioritised? Is putting a monetary value on all categories of information worth the effort—or even do-able?
  • What lessons can be learned from financial services, which has been ahead of the curve when it comes to managing information risk? How are other industries approaching information risk?
  • To what extent should information risk be part of the organisation’s broader risk management portfolio? Or is it unique enough to be managed separately? Should those with executive responsibility for information risk management sit on the corporate risk board?
