The best way to differentiate you is to be able to actually describe a situation, the action taken and results that were accomplished in a way that displays an overall understanding of risk...Display your understanding of the problems or risks before they implemented a solution, did you tailor the solution to meet the risk appetite of the business? 9. At a sensitive meeting, keep sign simple by saying, "Private Meeting."
