  1. Minutes – The BRC approved the minutes of the 19 June 2015, 9 November 2015, and 1 February 2016 meetings.

  2. BRC Workplan – Staff provided an overview of the updated BRC Workplan for the 2016 calendar year and explained that it may be further updated based upon the finalized version of the three-year Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) strategy roadmap. The Workplan also includes reviews of ICANN's cybersecurity efforts every six months.

    • Action:

      • Staff to update BRC Workplan to include items regarding risk implications of the IANA stewardship transition and resulting accountability work, as well as further revisions based upon the finalized ERM strategy roadmap.

  3. Quarterly Risk Assessment Update – Staff provided an overview of the quarterly risk assessment of ICANN's risk matrix, which contains approximately 30-35 identified risks, and informed the BRC that no new top ten risks have been identified. Staff explained that the identified risks are monitored on an on-going basis, and the risks to be included in the top ten are re-assessed annually and/or on an as-needed basis.

    • Actions:

      • Staff to assess and discuss with the BRC members, and then provide a summary to the BRC regarding IANA Stewardship transition-related risk implications and whether any new risks should be included in the top ten risks.

      • Staff to assess and recommend to the BRC how to include and monitor potential risks, if any, associated with the DNSSEC key rollover.

  4. ERM Strategy Roadmap – Staff provided an overview of the ERM strategy and roadmap, as well as the current status and target positions for each of the seven types of risk management activities. Staff further explained that the ERM roadmap defines the risk management strategy at ICANN for the next three years. The BRC continued (from the last meeting) to discuss the categories of risk management activities, the appropriate target positions, the proposed timeline and objectives to reach each target position, as well as the key success factors used to measure progress.
