Topic: Is Governance Keeping Pace With Technology, Business Change?
Considering the complexity, uncertainty and sheer speed of the business and risk environments today, it was little surprise that when asked of 140 audit committee members to identify their top oversight concerns, at the top of the list was the adequacy of “governance processes, controls and risk management – particularly in light of emerging technology, globalization and changes to the business”.
From risks posed by emerging technologies, cyber terrorism and globalization, to leveraging social media and data to shape customer strategy and support real-time business decisions, the speed and complexity of the business environment has pushed governance to the top of many agendas.
The presentation will explore the host of risks posed by emerging technologies – data privacy and security, the impact of social media, legal compliance and more.
