Kai said:

“The dynamics of digital transformation require not only a mature risk awareness but also continuous development of cyber risk training and programs.

The Institute of Risk Management plays a key role in supporting clients on this journey to enable a secure and risk aware digital journey. Risk management and cyber security are essential pillars for the future success of companies and the digital survival of our society.”

Martin Tang, Chairman of IRM Switzerland Regional Group responded: 

“Switzerland is a leading domicile for global large corporates and there is great interest amongst our membership in Cyber Security. Two of our four annual risk management events are focused on this fast-moving and ever-changing standard. 

We are delighted and grateful to have NTT Security as our headline event sponsor. 

I met Kai at NTT Security’s “Information Security World” conference in Frankfurt and was impressed by the breadth and depth of NTT’s services, offering the full range of specialized managed security and consulting services”. 

In December 2018, IRM launched a new IRM Certificate in Digital Risk Management, with the 1st examinations taking place in November 2019 for this 9-month program. 

By offering this new qualification, IRM aims to help expand and increase specialist knowledge in the cyber risk management field and give employers the ability to identify the most qualified candidates in the dynamically expanding cyber job market.
