Making the Vision a Reality: The Road to Digitizing Risk Management

June 28, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring Cyndi Acocelli, Risk Manager I, Boston Scientific

Managing a complex risk operation with a largely manual spreadsheets can feel like herding a thousand cats. Routine tasks like collecting, validating, and consolidating hundreds of data points from many stakeholders in different departments across the organization can take weeks – if you’re lucky.

Over the past decade, Boston Scientific has moved from a manual spreadsheet environment into a leading RMIS-centered operation for the life sciences – which includes tracking its large and complex clinical trial program and using that data to improve insurance management.

Boston Scientific’s Cyndi Acocelli will join Riskonnect and Redhand to share her real-life experience along this path, including best practices, pitfalls, and the importance of having a true partnership with a technology provider.

You’ll learn: 

  • How to think before you upload – planning strategies for data integrity
  • How to think about configuration and customization
  • What to look for in a RMIS vendor and long-term partner

July 6, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. CET
Bjoern Heck, Head of Sales – DACH, Riskonnect
Ilka McHugh, Customer Success Manager, Riskonnect

Für die meisten Versicherungssparten steht einmal im Jahr ein aufwendiger Renewal-Prozess an. Wieviel Zeit, Kosten und Ressourcen könnten gespart werden, wenn es eine dem Risiko angemessene, digital gestützte Datenerfassung gäbe, die abgestimmt ist zwischen Kunde, Makler und den Bedürfnissen der Versicherer? Ein dauerhafter Prozess, der auf Nachhaltigkeit ausgelegt ist, frei nach dem Motto „Es gibt keine schlechten Risiken, sondern nur zu wenig Informationen“?

Grundlage sind gut strukturierte und zentralisierte Daten, damit alle am Renewal beteiligten Parteien die Möglichkeit haben, gemäß ihren Informationsbedürfnissen digital darauf zuzugreifen. Über eine solche Datenplattform können schnell und einfach Daten ausgetauscht, bearbeitet und angepasst werden. Das spart nicht nur Zeit, sondern auch Ressourcen, da alle Beteiligten immer auf demselben Datenstand arbeiten.

In Webinar stellen wir Ihnen anhand eines typischen Renewals das Values Collection Tool unserer integrierten Risikomanagement-Pattform vor.

Erfahren Sie, wie Sie  

  • durch Digitalisierung und Automatisierung Zeit, Kosten und Ressourcen sparen
  • den Informationsaustausch zwischen allen Prozessbeteiligten effizienter gestalten
  • flexibel auf neue Anforderungen reagieren und zugleich die Qualität Ihrer Risikodaten verbessen
  • den Überblick über den Renewal-Status behalten
  • Daten in Informationen umwandeln und empfängergerecht zur Verfügung stellen
  • mit Hilfe einer unabhängigen Datenplattform die Hoheit über Ihre Daten und Prozesse behalten

GRC, ERM and IRM have very different meanings and processes to different people, and everyone thinks they are right. How can we all work together when we are seeing the world from very different points of view? We can’t, which is why so much of this work that should be integrated and harmonized is still done in silos, defeating the underlying purpose.

In this webinar, Jason Mefford, an expert in internal audit, risk management, and compliance, will share:  

  • The different points of view of GRC, ERM and IRM professionals
  • How to create a common language and process so we work together instead of against each other
  • How to determine the best approach for your organization

Key Risk Indicators are an excellent tool for building senior executive ownership and participation in ERM. Yet they are an often-misunderstood element of an effective ERM program. How can you identify the right KRIs for your organization?

Design and implementation of an ERM program starts with the overall governance objectives of the program, the role of risk taking in building and protecting the organization, the nature of key business processes within the enterprise, and the focus and competency of the organization.

In this webinar, noted ERM expert Rob Quail will share best practices for KRI development. He’ll help you understand:

  • What is the relationship between KRIs and KPIs?
  • What are the steps to select and develop a robust set of KRIs?
  • How can you set KRI thresholds that will trigger action?
  • What is the role of senior executives in establishing and using KRIs?
  • What are the keys to driving acceptance for KRIs among decision makers and risk owners?
  • Where do KRIs fit relative to other aspects of a mature ERM program, such as risk appetite and tolerances, risk criteria, risk assessment and evaluation processes, risk registry, and risk reporting?

Third party GRC risk in relationships

Third-Party GRC/Risk: Ensuring Integrity in Third-Party Relationships

September 22, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. ET
Michael Rasmussen, The GRC Pundit @ GRC 20/20
Earn CPE Credit!

According to the adage, you are defined by the friends you keep. This is also true in business – organizations are defined by their third-party relationships.

Traditional boundaries of the organization have fallen in favor of an enterprise that extends to third-party relationships. The issues with your third parties — suppliers, contractors, vendors, consultants, outsourcers, service providers, and more – are YOUR issues.

In the era of ESG – environmental, social, governance – focus is shifting outward to ensure that the supply chain and third-party relationships share the same values as the organization. Organizations need an integrated strategy across ESG risk areas to see the full picture of integrity and risk across the extended enterprise of third-party relationships.

You’ll learn how to:

  • Define your values and integrity within the context of the extended enterprise.
  • Assess third-party relationships for integrity-related risks.
  • Monitor developments that could impact the risk to the extended enterprise.
  • Utilize technology to manage, monitor, and report on ESG and the integrity of the extended enterprise.

November 17, 2022, at 1:00 p.m. ET
Jason Mefford, Featuring: CEO, cRisk Academy | President, Mefford Associates​
Earn CPE Credit!

Whether you realize it or not, your risk assessment is full of cognitive biases. That means you might think you’ve captured the high risks, when the reality is that you are horribly exposed to risks you either minimized or didn’t see altogether. And you might not even realize it.

In this webinar, internal audit, risk management, and compliance expert, Jason Mefford, will share how to:

  • Understand the most common cognitive biases.
  • Acknowledge and deal with the cognitive biases in how you design your risk assessment.
  • Get away from risk/heat maps and complex calculations that hide your biases.
