Risk Awareness Week


Ask yourself and your teams these questions...

  • How do you know you’re spending the right amount on risk management?  
  • How do you know that the risks you’re dealing with now are more important and more impactful than other risks elsewhere in your business?
  • Are your risk treatment activities advancing your business strategy?

We invite business, I.T., operational leaders, and enterprise architecture leaders & their teams - and associated teams - to join the conversation, and discover how risk can be better managed - with an enterprise architecture approach - to connect the dots across your business when it comes to risk.  Check out the agenda below and select which sessions you wish to attend.

Business Strategy, Risk Management and Enterprise Architecture: What's the Connection?



Too often, we see risk managed in silos.  Furthermore, risk is not just a technology issue - it needs to be owned at the business level.

A common challenge with risk is that it involves a lot of technicalities around infrastructure, vulnerabilities, threats, data, etc. - so how do you turn that into a business conversation?  Is your enterprise's current approach to risk really sufficient to capture all the moving parts, and deliver a truly effective strategy that's aligned to your business?

Join to hear how others build business resilience through Enterprise Architecture!

Break the Language Barrier with Weekend Language

"Leaders don't fund and don't endorse the things they don't understand." Enterprise architecture is critical to your CEO's ability to grow the business, to your CFO's ability to save money and shed costs, and to your organization's ability to achieve, plan and execute. Here's how a Weekend Language approach can help break those barriers. (Source: BiZZdesign Connect 2021)
