RISK SUMMIT AFRICA 2022

KEMPINSKI HOTEL ACCRA. 13TH & 14TH JULY 2022

Risk management has become an essential part of corporate management, strategy, and leadership over the past few years, and risk executives are increasingly required to work across a broad range of issues.

Risk leaders also need to coach and train their staff in the detection and management of emerging risks. If properly structured and integrated with strategy, active risk management can provide a competitive advantage in all sectors, providing critical protection to corporate reputation and brand, as well as enabling strategic growth over time.

This conference offers an up-to-date overview of the critical global and strategic risks confronting multinational organizations.

Fear of not knowing how to manage risk, understand risk, know what’s next, be at a disadvantage with competitors, fail to live up to legal and regulatory standards, understand complexity of issues, should drive corporate organizations to want to get the latest on the principal strategic, substantive and organizational risks. Some reasons for attending:

  • Desire to learn more to make the organization more resilient and healthier and compete in the marketplace in an effective way
  • Desire to create value through effective risk management – to find the opportunity for growth, business process improvement and better products and services
  • Desire to create a better risk culture and appetite that retains employees, customers, and other stakeholders

SUMMIT TOPICS

Operational Resilience in an Era of Increasing Financial Decentralisation and Digitalisation

Speaker: NhyirabaYaw Sompah Okyere – Enterprise Risk Consultant, Arican Learn

Over the past few years, the financial services sector has placed a growing emphasis on operational resilience. High-profile cyber security events, the global pandemic, and even macroeconomic uncertainty, as most recently demonstrated by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, can all be reasons for this.

Maximising Both Sides of Risk in Turbulence - focus on colleague

Speaker: Dela Agbetor, Country Head of Operational Risk Projects - ABSA

For professionals who must conduct risk assessments, contingency planning, and crisis management as part of their work and who must generate successful projects, a crisis management leadership course has been developed.

Securing the Enterprise: Third Party Risk Management

Speaker: Foster Kplomdo, MTN Ghana.

Any firm now has a substantially larger attack surface than before. In the past, businesses were in charge of protecting the data kept on on-site servers and using cutting-edge security tools to fend off cyberattacks. The majority of the time, these threats were made for personal or partisan gain. Your risk is bigger than ever as businesses link technology to reach a larger user base, cooperate with vendors, and enable work across a distributed workforce across geographically different sites. In this Session we will delve deeper into how Enterprises can be secured.

Case Study: Engaging Internal Auditors in Operational Risk and Compliance Management

Internal auditors are put in charge of monitoring the organization’s activities to identity areas of improvement. As such, they are in a unique position to assist risk and compliance management efforts. Internal audits allow for areas of excessive risk and non-compliance to be identified and dealt before it is too late. In this session, we will examine how synergy between internal auditors and risk & compliance managers is achieved.
