Despite extensive work to build reliable risk assessment models in business, insurance, and finance, assessing risk in information systems remains a mystery, with few organizations understanding what risks they're taking with their information infrastructures. Understanding risk assessment models and how they can be adapted to information technology is a crucial component of risk management in business today. Requirements of risk assessment models will be considered along with the state of information technology and its ability to address these requirements.

Da Vinci Ristorante, 4740 Reed Rd, Columbus, Ohio, from 8:30 to 12:15. Continental breakfast and lunch buffet provided for Members $15 and Non-Members $20.
