Questions boards should ask: Are we covered on cyber terrorism? What kind of talent does our co have within IT space? #riskevent

Think you have your IT managed? If answer is yes, you need to change something because it is daily vigilance. #riskevent #corpgov

Our third panel is under way: The Audit Committee’s Role in Internal and External Investigations #riskevent http://bit.ly/GSk3YL

Questions to ask to determine inside vs outside counsel. Do you have the resources internally? How serious is the issue? #riskevent #corpgov

Pros and cons to both. Internally you know the people and cost savings is great. #riskevent

It's a huge expense to bring outside help in...need to manage expense appropriately. #riskevent

Advice for committees who have gone internal investigation route...can you shift to outside if needed? #riskevent #corpgov

If you use special ediscovery software, be very careful. The tools are sophisticated and can be profusely abused. #riskevent

Investigations are a matter of when, not if. Better off having process in place before something happens. #riskevent #corpgov

Future of risk management-balancing creating value & protecting value. Some are too focused on process of risk. Think of opps. #riskevent

What is your greatest risk? Board members attending #riskevent say reputational risk.

@Lowes focuses on social media as an opportunity. Gives employees iPhones so they can do price checks. #riskevent
