Technology Risk Chapter
The Technology Risk chapter demonstrates an organizational commitment to innovation and technology.
The Technology Risk Chapter is the first of its kind to be set up in RIMAS.
The activities of the chapter will be organizing workshops, seminars to promote the concept of Technology risk management, responsibility, and leadership among our members in the association. Technology Risk Management, and the benefits thereof, are better understood and many large companies now have personnel who are specially assigned Technology risk management duties. Some companies in fact have established Technology risk management divisions in order to provide risk services to their clients.
There is a bright future for risk management practitioners as the benefits of sound Technology risk management strategies become increasingly recognized throughout the business community.
