Accountability In Risk Compliance_ Addressing Accountability Regulations

Accountability In Risk & Compliance: Addressing Accountability Regulations Around The World

Thursday, April 29th, 2:00 p.m. BST
Featuring: Michael Rasmussen, The GRC Pundit @ GRC2020

Organizations, particularly financial services firms, are seeing a growing array of accountability regulations around the world. What started with the United Kingdom’s Senior Managers Regime & Certification Regime (UK SMCR) has globally impacted financial services firms with operations in the United Kingdom. This has further expanded into other regimes such as Australia Banking Executive Accountability Regulation (BEAR), Ireland Senior Executive Accountability Regulation (SEAR), Hong Kong Manager in Charge Regulation (MIC), and now Singapore’s stringent accountability regulation.

Accountability regulations are here to stay and financial services organizations are looking how to make compliance and reporting sustainable year over year. Organizations need to take a top-down strategic approach to accountability regulations and address compliance through structured processes with a common information and technology architecture that drives efficiency, effectiveness, agility, and accountability into these processes.

Attendees of this webinar will learn how to:

  • Identify the common requirements, process elements, and reporting needs across these regimes
  • Understand the nuances and differences between these regimes
  • Monitor current and future trends in enforcement
  • Define common processes that drive greater efficiency and effectiveness in compliance
  • Enable compliance to be agile and accountable in a distributed and dynamic business

Engaging Employees and Developing an Ethical Culture of Responsibility

Thursday, May 20, at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Michael Rasmussen, The GRC Pundit @ GRC 20/20

Governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) is the capability to reliably achieve objectives, address uncertainty, and act with integrity. This last piece of GRC is critical: at its foundation GRC is about the integrity of the organization. While objectives can be achieved in many unethical ways, organizations need to shift their thinking of GRC and focus on the integrity of the organization. Does it live up to its values, commitments, obligations, and statements? Organizational integrity requires GRC to be more than the back-office functions of risk and compliance — it must be actively engaged in the front-office of the business. Integrity requires a cultivated culture of ethics and responsibility.

You will learn how to:

  • Identify risks to business integrity, brand, and reputation.
  • Monitor a dynamic business environment and ensure it stays on the straight and narrow road of integrity.
  • Understand the difference between accountability and responsibility and their symbiotic relationship to integrity.
  • Engage front-office functions on their responsibilities.
  • Improve your ethics culture within your organization.
  • Equip employees in ethics and responsibilities through an overall integrity strategy and engagement.

Managing through COVID-19, Its Aftermath, and Beyond

Thursday, June 24th at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Rob Quail, Principal and Owner, Robert Quail Consulting

Organizations are still dealing with the fallout from COVID-19 – and more surprises are sure to come. Those already in a weakened state from pandemic stresses may be disproportionately affected by something new. It’s important that executive leaders and risk managers raise their gaze from short-term day-to-day crisis management to see the broader risks and implications.
What actions should risk managers and executive management take to successfully manage through the remainder of this global crisis, its aftermath, and beyond?
In this webinar, Enterprise Risk Management expert Rob Quail will offer tips for mounting an effective risk management response by timeframe:

  • Immediate risks: What are our key dependencies and related risks?
  • Short-term risks: Will there be second crisis? How will we cope?
  • Medium- to long-term risks: How to apply scenario planning to identify vulnerabilities and opportunities
  • Lessons learned: How can we use this experience to improve our agility for when the next surprise hits?

Thinking Creatively About Risk

The Agile & Resilient Organization: Thinking Creatively About Risk

Thursday, July 15, 2021 | 1:00 P.M. EDT
Featuring: Michael Rasmussen, The GRC Pundit @ GRC 20/20

Enterprise and operational risk management programs are evolving to address agility and resiliency of the organization.

Risk needs to be aligned with organization strategy, performance, and objectives to enable agility. But to achieve resiliency, you also need to understand the interconnectedness and exposure of risk down in the depths of the organization.

This requires that organizations change how they approach risk management, particularly in thinking creatively about risk management.
Good risk management is more than left-brain structured thinking of risk (which is still very critical). It also involves right-brain creative thinking to see and analyze the complex interrelationships of risk and how different scenarios can unfold and impact the organization. Agility is as critical as resiliency to today’s enterprise and operational risk management programs.

This webinar will provide specific insight on how to think creatively about risk management. You’ll learn how to:

  • Enable both left-brain and right-brain collaboration on risk
  • Engage the organization in creative risk thinking
  • Visualize risk to see relationships and perspectives

Shifting to a Continuous Risk-Assessment Approach

Thursday, November 18th at 1:00 p.m. ET
Featuring: Jason Mefford, CEO, cRisk Academy | President, Mefford Associates

Earn CPE Credit!

The annual risk assessment that gets filed away and forgotten about until next year has been the standard practice for assessing risk for decades — and is still the practice of many organizations. With increasing velocity and frequency of risk events, the global interdependency of organizations, and the changing business environment, this once-and-done approach just doesn’t work anymore.

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

  • Better understand the drivers behind risk events and impacts.
  • Use the knock-out punch method to shift to continuous assessment.
  • Facilitate discussions in a remote work environment.
