Managing through COVID-19, Its Aftermath, and Beyond

Thursday, June 24th at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Rob Quail, Principal and Owner, Robert Quail Consulting

Organizations are still dealing with the fallout from COVID-19 – and more surprises are sure to come. Those already in a weakened state from pandemic stresses may be disproportionately affected by something new. It’s important that executive leaders and risk managers raise their gaze from short-term day-to-day crisis management to see the broader risks and implications.
What actions should risk managers and executive management take to successfully manage through the remainder of this global crisis, its aftermath, and beyond?
In this webinar, Enterprise Risk Management expert Rob Quail will offer tips for mounting an effective risk management response by timeframe:

  • Immediate risks: What are our key dependencies and related risks?
  • Short-term risks: Will there be second crisis? How will we cope?
  • Medium- to long-term risks: How to apply scenario planning to identify vulnerabilities and opportunities
  • Lessons learned: How can we use this experience to improve our agility for when the next surprise hits?

Thinking Creatively About Risk

The Agile & Resilient Organization: Thinking Creatively About Risk

Thursday, July 15, 2021 | 1:00 P.M. EDT
Featuring: Michael Rasmussen, The GRC Pundit @ GRC 20/20

Enterprise and operational risk management programs are evolving to address agility and resiliency of the organization.

Risk needs to be aligned with organization strategy, performance, and objectives to enable agility. But to achieve resiliency, you also need to understand the interconnectedness and exposure of risk down in the depths of the organization.

This requires that organizations change how they approach risk management, particularly in thinking creatively about risk management.
Good risk management is more than left-brain structured thinking of risk (which is still very critical). It also involves right-brain creative thinking to see and analyze the complex interrelationships of risk and how different scenarios can unfold and impact the organization. Agility is as critical as resiliency to today’s enterprise and operational risk management programs.

This webinar will provide specific insight on how to think creatively about risk management. You’ll learn how to:

  • Enable both left-brain and right-brain collaboration on risk
  • Engage the organization in creative risk thinking
  • Visualize risk to see relationships and perspectives

risk@work - Risk Appetite_ A Practical Approach for Connecting Strategy and Risk

Risk Appetite: A Practical Approach for Connecting Strategy and Risk

Thursday, October 14th at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Rob Quail, Principal and Owner, Robert Quail Consulting

Few concepts have caused more confusion and debate among Enterprise Risk Management practitioners than the elusive topic of “risk appetite.” From conflicting or vague definitions to dramatically different approaches, all portrayed as “best practice,” we are a long way from consensus on what risk appetite really is intended to accomplish for an organization.

In this session, Enterprise Risk Management expert Rob Quail will describe a step-by-step approach to understanding an organization’s risk appetite. In particular:

  • How does uncertainty create value for the organization?
  • Given your mission and values, how much risk should you be willing to accept?
  • How do you want decision makers to take risk appetite into account in their day-to-day choices?
  • How do you implement and monitor conformance with your risk appetite?
  • What roles do the board, CEO, CRO, management, and stakeholders play?

Shifting to a Continuous Risk-Assessment Approach

Thursday, November 18th at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Jason Mefford, CEO, cRisk Academy | President, Mefford Associates

Earn CPE Credit!

The annual risk assessment that gets filed away and forgotten about until next year has been the standard practice for assessing risk for decades — and is still the practice of many organizations. With increasing velocity and frequency of risk events, the global interdependency of organizations, and the changing business environment, this once-and-done approach just doesn’t work anymore.

In this webinar, Jason Mefford, an expert in internal audit, risk management, and compliance, will share how to:

  • Better understand the drivers behind risk events and impacts.
  • Use the knock-out punch method to shift to continuous assessment.
  • Facilitate discussions in a remote work environment.
