QLD Building Knowledge Series: Members in Business


Join us to find out more about Cyber Security and the associated business risks as Geraldine Magarey FCA takes you through the latest research conducted in this area by CA ANZ and has a discussion with Andrew McKenzie, who is the State Leader of the Financial Services Group (FSG) team of Aon Risk Solutions, to explore how companies identify risk and protect themselves in this area.
Topic: Cyber Security - A business risk affecting us all

Cyber security is a significant business risk across all organisations. The level of threat evolves and changes as technology changes. Organisations are, however, increasingly connected and this too transforms their risk profile.

Yet, cyber security is not seen as a business risk; we seem content to leave it to a focused group of professionals who have strong IT technical ability but may not have the financial awareness necessary for evaluating the potential consequences of a security breach (not about financial awareness but operational awareness). It cannot be left to the information technology professionals alone. Finance professionals need to understand and play their full role in managing cyber risk in their organisations.
