Chris Ward - Why a risk practitioner mustn't ignore cyber warfare.....
RiskNZ is the peak sector and professional body in New Zealand bringing together those people and organisations managing risk. It embraces the vision that New Zealand prospers because risk is well managed.
Each year we see events that demonstrate that New Zealand enterprises, regardless of type, are not immune to the consequences of poor risk management. These events suggest current approaches to risk management in many organisations are not as developed as they could be.
The ramifications are varied, but included loss of reputation, productivity and financial loss, death and injury, and prosecutions through our judicial system.
Membership of RiskNZ today includes many complex organisations with a vital interest in managing risk well. It includes many of New Zealand’s leading businesses and several government departments. DHBs, tertiary institutions and local authorities are also members, as are numerous SMEs in the private sector.
By acting now and joining RiskNZ you will ensure your organisation is amongst those leading NZ enterprises that are proactively strengthening their approaches to managing risk in order to prosper.
