Risk Management Track: Keynote Address
Speaker: Lou Drapeau, University of Kentucky
DRI tapped Lou Drapeau to lead our Risk Management Track, and who better than a past President of RIMS and current Chairman of the Board of Directors of DRI International and Director of Risk Management at the University of Kentucky to connect the dots between these two disciplines? On the agenda for Drapeau’s senior-level discussion of Enterprise Risk Management for Business Continuity Professionals is a frank discussion of how the two relate, identifying the drivers, process mapping and methodology, the impact of the risk appetite on BCM, and how to leverage the benefits of bringing the two together while avoiding the pitfalls.
