Operational and compliance risks have become more complex and entwined, increasing the potential for failed processes that govern control breakdowns. Silo mentality is in itself a risk and the operational risk leader is in a unique position to provide their enterprise with a holistic governance approach that brings together the entire risk portfolio. You need mitigate risks with an eye on the big picture. Cybersecurity ranks as the #1 priority for financial institutions today, permeating the breadth of every function across your organization. Many risk leaders without technical skills are overwhelmed by the scale of the potential threat.

Infonex's annual Operational Risk Canada will provide you with strategies to focus your cyber efforts. Canadian financial institutions, once immune to the scandals plaguing out of country, are now in the spotlight for their misconduct and mis-selling. Hear how you can improve conduct, culture, and customer experience; not in isolation, but combined to truly seize a competitive advantage. As big data drives the demand for financial institutions to be like tech companies, your risks under the technology umbrella, increase. You need best practises on how to keep up with the moving target of IT risk. Third-party risk management is an ongoing area of concern and we have thought leaders to address what is emerging on this front, into 2018.

Our Operational Risk Canada agenda provides something for early to advanced learners in ops risk, tokens of wisdom for various stages of OpRisk implementation, as well as focused areas for risk so your entire team will be engaged. As OpRisk Leaders, you have been honing the discipline of enterprise risk as a matter of practice. Your contributions to the strategic risk mitigation of your organization have never been more in focus.

As a leader with risk oversight you are in a constant need to strengthen your systems against dynamic, ever-changing risks. Join us in Toronto and get guidance on your most pressing operational risk challenges. Register today!
