The business world in general and financial institutions in particular is witnessing unprecedented generation of data, new nature of competitions, increasing regulatory demands and new consumer preferences, thereby creating new opportunities and presenting new threats.
With information flowing at a lightning speed unchecked, any risk event can be catastrophic to an organization with perhaps irreversible damage.

In the light of new competitions and entrants and the fierce speed with which innovations and technologies are changing, the financial world may need to adopt a more pragmatic approach to risk management and develop a robust enterprise-wide risk governance and culture.

GRC Today Summit brings you a day full of forward-looking discussions on the state and transformation of governance, risk and compliance, the financial services industry must strive to adopt to thrive.

Past Speakers
