During this half day event, the industry's leading governance, risk, and compliance subject matter experts will share ideas and insights on current trends and issues, and will present best practices in integrating governance, risk, and compliance into business processes to drive overall business performance. Speakers during this event include Tom Harper, EVP & General Auditor at FHLB Chicago, Ed Tobia, Partner of Financial Services Advisory at PWC, Susan Palm, VP Industry Solutions at MetricStream, Joe DeVita, Partner at PwC, and Jannie Wentzel, PwC, GRC Technology Director.

Today, banks and financial institutions face an unprecedented volume, velocity, and complexity of risks. Over the past decade, even the most reputed organizations across the globe have been adversely impacted by operational risk events such as, internal fraud, unethical business practices and inadequate processes, all of which has led to increasing regulatory oversight and requirements that aim to reduce risks and their impact on the organization and its stakeholders. One example of this is the Basel III requirements, which have heightened the pressure on banks to implement more streamlined processes that will protect their business operations and stakeholders from emerging risks.

In response to today's risk landscape, robust, data-driven, and collaborative technology solutions are increasingly being leveraged by banks and financial institutions. Speakers during this event will discuss how technology solutions are helping their organizations eliminate functional silos and manage their business risks in a more integrated and streamlined manner. Furthermore, an advanced platform-based solution also offers the capability to adapt to the latest compliance requirements and emerging risks in the market. Speed, better business performance, and efficiencies are just some of the benefits organizations have realized with a platform-based technology solution.

Several important questions that will be addressed at this event include:

  • What measures are being taken by leading organizations to overcome the challenges they are facing?
  • How can banks and financial institutions break down their governance, risk, and compliance silos to ensure a more integrated approach?
  • What is the role of technology in enabling and supporting this effort?
