Risk Management


"Risk Management has been assigned as a basic Board of Directors responsibility. Risk Management is expected, and required, of licensed professionals. All of us who view ourselves as IT Professionals have a professional responsibility to assess and manage risk. It's fundamental to being a professional. It also makes good business sense. Do it ... always!"

Dr. Bob Fabian, FCIPS, I.S.P. (ret)
Risk Management Task Force Chair
