After a short introduction by Jonathan Crisp, Director at BarnOwl thanking IRMSA for all the good work they continue to put into our risk profession, Jonathan showed a short video-clip highlighting the importance of risk management. Please click here for a link to the video highlighting snippets from BarnOwl’s info sharing sessions as well as a snippet from Warren Buffet’s biography where Mr. Buffet presenting to the ‘Trading of Government’s Securities House Commerce Subcommittee’ regarding the Solomon’s debacle in 1991 says ‘Lose money for the firm and I will be understanding, lose a shred of reputation for the firm and I will be ruthless’.
Chubb spoke to us on ‘Cyber Resilience’ delivering a hard-hitting message of how scary the world is becoming with everything connected and being so reliant on technology especially if you don’t implement effective risk management and put mitigation plans in place.
BarnOwl is proud to have a close working relationship with IRMSA and to be part of the greater risk management fraternity which plays an ever-increasingly important role in promoting the need for good corporate governance and effective risk management.
