Panel Discussion: Risk Quantification: You Are What You Measure 

Risk Quantification can be both an enticing and intimidating exercise for a business to pursue. How does an organization get from point A to point B (and back again) to score and value risk? In this session, we’ll take a back-to-basics approach to break down the concept of risk, contrast this understanding with some of the modern applications of risk in business, and discuss how people across your organization may interpret the meaning of risk. We’ll diagnose some of the common pitfall’s companies fall into and identify perspectives to help account for variables that do not have defined parameters when understanding risk.

Our expert panel includes:

  • Crispen Maung, Head of InfoSec and Compliance, RapidAPI (Former Salesforce, Box, Oracle, and Apple)
  • Scott Bridgen, GRC Global Offering Lead, OneTrust
  • Michelle Griffey, Chief Risk Officer, Communisis
  • Debo Ajayi, Technology Risk, Operational Resilience and Non-Financial Risk Lead
  • Joe Tidy, BBC News (Host)
