Risk and Uncertainty Management Workshop
A Melbourne Alumni Network Event

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Join the ANU Melbourne Alumni Network for an interactive workshop to explore issues surrounding risk and uncertainty management. The workshop will be highly relevant to people wanting to build understanding about how senior management / leadership positions arrive at decisions during a response to a major incident affecting an organisation. 

Risk and uncertainty management is relevant to everyone irrespective of organisation or sector. Despite this, learning and development is often ad hoc and takes place during crisis situations. Good decisions, however, can not only result in organisational success, but also significant individual rewards.

The evening will focus on the in 2010 incident where Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the online journal database JSTOR found themselves being hacked of 4.5 million journal articles. Through a series of decisions and consequent outcomes an MIT staff member, Jason Swartz, committed suicide. Following this tragedy JSTOR decided to release the 4.5 million hacked articles free to the general public in Jason's memory.  

The workshop will explore the MIT and JSTOR example from a range of perspectives including leadership and management, legal, public relations, finance and communications. 

Keynote speaker: Dr Erik Lithander BSc (Hons), MPhil, PhD, ANU Pro Vice-Chancellor (International & Outreach)
