The recent news on the technical glitch that caused one of the largest global financial services institutions to lose millions in inadvertent trades in less than an hour has jolted the Financial Services (FS) industry. While this is not the first of technical accidents in the recent past, FS organizations are being very cautious and have been stepping up their technology risk controls and putting in place real-time surveillance to avoid irrevocable financial and reputational damage. In a world of algorithmic trading, the speed and size of losses due to a minor technical malfunction could cause drastic market moves and a large-scale crash - a reason why organizations need to deploy technology that is not only speed-centric but which ensures control and safety of transactions and trades.

In this forum, GRC experts and technical risk specialists Trevor Galloway, former Technical Risk Specialist at Morgan Stanley, Phillipa Girling, Principal at PXG Associates, and Kristen Gantt, Regional Vice President Industry Solutions at MetricStream will share their perspectives and strategies that will help financial services organizations to:

  • Implement efficient operational risk controls and corporate governance practices
  • Identify and mange technology risks
  • Ensure responsibility and ownership within the organization
  • Understand the downsides of algorithmic trading
