June 10, 2013 | London, UK: MetricStream, the market leader in enterprise-wide Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will participate in the 15th Annual OpRisk European Conference, hosted by Operational Risk and Regulation magazine. The event, which will take place from June 11-14, 2013 in London, will convene over 200 senior risk management professionals who will share their strategic insights and ideas on operational risk management, and how it can help organizations gain a competitive edge. Gaurav Kapoor, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of MetricStream, will moderate a panel discussion titled “Embedding Operational Risk in the Front Office,” which will take place on June 12.

The industry is poised for significant regulatory change in the coming years, and organizations need to focus on their internal processes and operations in order to effectively manage and adapt to these changes. Operational risks continue to gain more significance, and must be viewed in the same light as market risks. It is imperative that organizations take the adequate measures to mitigate and manage their operational risks, so that they can stay one step ahead of the regulators, and one step ahead of the competition.

Mr. Kapoor will lead a discussion that addresses these topics and more, and will be joined by Simon Ashby, Head of the Accounting and Finance Group at Plymouth Business School, David Dietman, Executive Director - Global Head of Equities Operational Risk at Nomura, and Ken Webster, Head of Operational Risk - Commercial Banking & Funding at Lloyds Banking Group. The group will analyze various aspects of operational risk, and will address today’s issues and challenges, including:

  • Raising awareness of operational risks across and within business units
  • Implementing change within the organizational structure to ensure compliance with existing and new regulations
  • Gaining and leveraging valuable insights to drive effective risk management
  • Thriving in today’s new complex business landscape
  • Preparing your business to meet the demand of new regulations
