The following is a summary of discussions, actions taken, and actions identified:
- Organization Risk Register Update – The Committee discussed the most recent updates to the Risk Register and reviewed the controls and mitigation in place for the updated risks. The updates are a result of the annual refresh where the functions are asked to take a "fresh look" at their risks and make in any revisions necessary, as well as consider if any additional risks should be added to the org Risk Register. The annual refresh includes a calibration exercise where the members of the Risk Liaison Network representing every org function discuss the individual risks in the org Risk Register to assure consistency of risk ratings and to provide an org-wide perspective on the portfolio of risks. ICANN org reported that the org Risk Register was reviewed by the org's CEO Risk Management Committee and approved by the ICANN President and CEO.
- BRC Work Plan – The Committee reviewed its work plan through the 2022 calendar year, which is up to date. There is a Risk Committee meeting scheduled for 8 November 2022 and a Board Risk Workshop scheduled for 22 November 2022. It is anticipated that the Risk Committee's Risk Report to the Board will be delivered to the Board on 6 December 2022. The Risk Report to the Board sets forth the Committee's activities during the year, including a recap of the information security update and updates on top risks in the org Risk Register.
