Welcome to RIMScast. Your host is Justin Smulison, Business Content Writer at RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society.


This week, Justin brings you a remastered members-only episode that aired back in October of last year. Due to much request, RIMScast believed it was due time to air it here!


The guest in this episode is Jason Brown, Chair of the Technical Committee that oversaw the changes made to the ISO 31000 standard. He’s also the National Security Director for Thales in Australia and New Zealand.


Jason provides tons of valuable insight in this special episode; discussing the most important changes that were made to the ISO 31000 standard in 2018, the key elements that were retained, and other projects that the Technical Committee will be working on in the future. He also offers his advice for risk management professionals interested in standards and how they can get involved on those committees.
