The superb Cardiff City Center offices of Eversheds were the venue for the latest meeting of ICM South Wales Branch. The speaker was Lee O'Connell, Group Risk Manager for LSG. The subject, not surprisingly, was risk management. Recent developments, corporate failures and increasing media scrutiny on businesses has demonstrated the need for more effective risk management within organizations, the raising of risk awareness among all levels of the business and the need to embed a culture of pro-active risk management. O'Connell went into some detail regarding information security and data protection, and discussed recent failures in this area.
