Speaker Biography: Robert Whitcher

With a background of Information Technology and Information Security Robert began his career working with a major global blue chip company where he helped setup an investigations organization with a focus on IT related crimes. Robert was the youngest manager in a major blue chip company at the time of appointment and went on to manage Information Security for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Robert is currently the BSI Global Technical Manager for TL 9000, ISO/IEC 20000 (IT Service Management), ESD (Electrostatic Discharge) and the Americas Technical Manager for ISO/IEC 27001 (Information Security) and ISO 22301 (Business Continuity).

Presentation Overview: Risk-Based Thinking, Risk Assessment, Risk Management and Managing Risks all look like the same topic areas; however, there are differences and it is important to understand these differences as each area involves a different level of skills and effort.

The presentation will go through each of these risks and explain the difference along with what is required and, more importantly, what is not required for the new ISO 9001 Quality Management System.

We look forward to seeing you.
