Springfield, IL (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
Sikich LLP, a nationally recognized public accounting and advisory firm (http://www.sikich.com), will be hosting a business risk management seminar, “Uncovering Business Vulnerabilities and Mitigating Risk” on November 10th and the Illini Country Club from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
Business risk management is often overlooked. But insufficient risk management can lead to serious loss of revenue and a damaged reputation. Risk management can pertain to business threats from natural, unforeseen events such as fires, floods and accidents. But those are not the only risks to consider. Business risks can also come from things such as competitors, vendor instability, client relationships, employee theft or fraud and simple human error, among others.
"Uncovering Business Vulnerabilities and Mitigating Risk” will focus on risks to business operations, systems and processes. By identifying and addressing risks, we will help you recognize the vulnerabilities in your business and show you how to minimize the impact and keep your business on track.
Thomas E. Bayer, CPA, CSPM, Partner, Sikich, will review operational risks common to middle market businesses and share his experiences in developing strategies to mitigate those risks to avoid interruption of business or loss of value.
Patrick Ferguson, Security Specialist, Sikich, will discuss the importance of business continuity within today’s complex, highly digitized, business environments and how to get started with disaster recovery planning. You will learn the best data protection strategies to effectively manage the risks to your infrastructure.
Understanding your business vulnerabilities and exposures can protect your revenue stream and minimize negative business impact.
Guests will be treated to a delicious lunch following the presentations. To register for this important session, visit http://www.regonline.com/bizrisk
