According to the Institute of Risk Management, Cyber risk is “any risk of financial loss, disruption or damage to the reputation of an organisation from some sort of failure of its information technology systems.”

This workshop is designed to demystify cyber risk and build your ability to assess and manage this risk in collaboration with your IT and information management specialists.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the workshop, you should be able to:

  • Confidently advocate for cyber risk being a strategic risk
  • Advise your organisation on better practice principles for managing cyber risk
  • Increase your awareness of government expectations around cyber risk

“Cyber risk is never a matter purely for the IT team, although they clearly play a vital role.” (IRM)


This session is beneficial for people with a risk and governance background, with a limited experience or exposure in IT. We also encourage IT specialists to attend to look at cyber from a business perspective.
