Board Advisor

Are your Board members informed about the risks or value that technology can bring to your organization?

The worst situation for the board is to learn too late that risks have been under-managed, important information has been stolen or a key project is significantly over budget or late or worse yet -fails. Recent research suggests that the very people hired to protect and enhance shareholder value may not have much knowledge about IT risk.

Chapin helps Boards assess and manage technology risk. He also works with Boards to assess new technology initiatives to determine if they align with the Business strategy and will bring value to the organization.


Technology risks come in many forms:

1)  IT infrastructure risk
2)  IT project risk
3)  Business continuity risk
4)  Information risk
