On April 11th ISACA’s second Risk Event was kicked-off by the conductor of the day (dagdirigent) Wim Bartels. With his Big 4 advisory background ánd extensive musical experience as singer and trumpet player, his personal ‘No Risk No Glory’ song brought the attendants in the right mood. After an interactive voting session with the audience, Jaap van der Leer – ISACA’s Chairman of the Board of the Dutch ISACA Chapter – proudly welcomed everyone. This second Risk Event hosted more professionals and offered a more divers content than ever. Therefore the organization committee had to change the location to the Johan Cruijff ARENA.
Five Post Master IT-auditing students are announced on stage, as they are nominated for the ISACA RISK AWARD. Their research papers are among the best for graduating at several Dutch universities. The event book contains an abstract of their papers. All attendees can vote for their preferred winner of the during the day.
The day’s content was distributed via 4 different tracks, that each hosted 5 break-out sessions:
1. Corporate risks
2. IT & (Cyber) Security risks
3. Innovation & Tech risks
4. Risk in an International context – fully presented in English language to serve the international professionals.

The last content part of the event started by Raef Meeuwisse with his great presentation on ‘How to hack a human’. Then the two final nominees of the ISACA RISK AWARD had to pitch their paper abstracts. After a close call, Ludy Rohling appeared the winner over runner-up Mabelle Schreurs. Albert Kisjes, owner of co-sponsor Agilos handed out the price of a 750 euro cheque. The result is an important acknowledgement to ISACA’s SheLeadsTech program, which aims to welcome more women in leadership roles and the tech workforce. The SheLeadsTech initiative gained many advocates during the day with its little red stickers. Then, the 4 track leads presented their key take-aways of the day and the organization committee got their well-deserved applaus. The Risk Event 2019 was formally closed by the conductor of the day and ISACA’s chairman of the board and all attendants were welcomed to join the dinner.
