About the Webinar
While Risk managers in all industries are grappling with the problems of performing real-time risk measurement and mitigation, an additional complexity due stringent compliance and regulatory requirements, like SOX, FCPA, HIPAA, AML, GLBA, FERC, NERC and many more, add an additional layer of challenges for them. As a result, companies are looking to systematically identify, measure, prioritize and respond to all types of risk in the business, while ensuring compliance to federal and state regulations.

This presentation will look to discuss the steps that leading organizations are taking to maintain consistency, reduce overhead, and streamline their efforts; offering attendees recommendations they can use to improve the performance of any risk or compliance management program.

  • Defining an effective framework for risk and compliance management that ties into the corporate objectives
  • Rationalization of controls to manage compliance and risk better
  • Effective communication, certification and updates to regulatory requirements
  • Risk and compliance program design - success factors, useful metrics, pitfalls to avoid
  • Role of internal audit in sustaining compliance
  • Risk based approach to compliance and audit management
