With technology opportunities comes risk. We have compiled a comprehensive database of technology related events both public and from expert experience. The course analyses these trends to help you understand the operational risks and how to mitigate them for your business.
In order to mitigate risk and capture effectively opportunities arising from technology, we will be discussing appropriate technology governance to accompany this process. We will guide you on key processes from budget planning, to change controls and handling disasters.
