Successful organisations and professionals differentiate themselves by focusing on positive risk (opportunities or strategic/operational planning) management with an equal level of importance as managing negative risks (issues and challenges).

With no single internationally accepted best practice to guide implementation of a TechRisk Management Framework, most Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) professionals have relied on disparate frameworks for IT Governance or Information / Cyber Security to anchor their TechRisk management capability implementation. This often results in organisations having moderate to limited success in achieving their business objectives or securing the benefits of their technology capabilities.

Vital Advisory’s TechRisk Management Lead Implementer training is designed to assist:

+ Organisations in approaching their TechRisk management capability implementation in a holistic manner, and to optimise opportunities and risks associated with technology investments
+ Professionals, whether internal or external to an organisation, to expand their knowledge and skills in the TechRisk governance and management discipline
+ Consulting or professional services firms to identify new value-added service opportunities for their ISO management system certification clients

Key benefits and outcomes

+ Understanding the key concepts and principles in TechRisk Management
+ Articulating drivers and benefits for implementing TechRisk Governance and Management capabilities
+ Preparing the business case for implementing TechRisk Management Framework

+ Acquiring the necessary expertise to support implementation of an integrated and end-to-end TechRisk Management Framework for an organisation
