Internet of Things (IoT) Risk Chapter

The Internet of Things (IoT) Risk chapter demonstrates an organizational commitment toward harnessing IoT technology to accelerate growth and manage risk.

The IoT Risk Chapter is the first of its kind to be set up in RIMAS.

The activities of the chapter will be organizing workshops, and seminars to promote the concept of IoT risk management, responsibility, and leadership among our members of the association.


The IoT Risk chapter looks at risks and opportunities embedded within the Internet of Things. The committee aims to share and promote the concept of Risk Management to help everyone understand the risks underlying the creation and use of IoT to make calculated risk decisions and turn them into opportunities to help accelerate the business.
