September 08, 2014 | Palo Alto, California: MetricStream, the market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) Management solutions, will host a Governance, Risk & Compliance Roundtable in Doha, Qatar on September 10, 2014. Several industry experts, research analysts and audit practitioners will share valuable insights on current GRC trends and the impact of GRC on organizations today. 

In today’s dynamic business environment, banking and financial institutions are subject to mounting pressure from the regulators, as the number of regulations and compliance mandates continues to increase. The banking sector in the Middle East is no exception. Although financial institutions in the Middle East have implemented GRC solutions to govern a wide array of activities and business processes, the continued expansion of business operations across borders, the rise of outsourcing, emerging technologies, and many other factors have led to all new kinds of risk that must be managed. One of the main challenges organizations face is the lack of cross-functional coordination. A mature GRC framework is capable of supporting all key activities and sub-processes associated with business operations. Since banking institutions are always susceptible to potential risks, Chief Risk Officers must pay special attention when creating risk libraries. When organizations widen the scope of their business, it is important that they also broaden the scope of their existing GRC framework as well, in order to ensure effective risk management, business objectives and related legislations. 

The roundtable will feature distinguished experts from various functions across the banking sector. Participants will have a chance to share ideas on best GRC strategies, the impact of GRC on the businesses, and major challenges faced. Delegates at the event will also gain valuable insights on various industry-specific discussions featuring leading experts including:

  • Dr. R. Seetharaman, Group Chief Executive Officer at Doha Bank
  • Marc Bonnassieux, Chief Risk Officer at Qatar First Bank
  • Sekhar Thodla, Strategic Advisor at Finesse
  • Prue Morris, Director of Policy at Qatar Financial Centre Regulatory Authority
  • Mohammad S. Manour, Sr. AGM Head of Compliance & AML/CFT Unit - Commercial Bank of Qatar
