Volatile. Ambiguous. Unpredictable.
Can you Identify Emerging Risks Impending in 2017?

Businesses are braced with a high degree of uncertainty amid rapid geopolitical, economic and technological changes. Growing trends towards populism, protectionism and deregulation can have profound implications on organisational risk profiles. The unpredictable political landscape will lead to increased instability in global markets. Aggressive hackers, Internet of Things and the use of big data can leave companies vulnerable to exploits and heightened cyber risks.

Can you monitor emerging risks proactively or will you fall victim to a false sense of security and risk serious financial, reputational, and business failures?

Forward Thinking Risk Management

Join this 2-day event to acquire robust strategies to manage risks in today’s volatile environment. Gain insights on Melco Resorts & Entertainment’s effective early warning process and MTR’s use of key indicators to pre-empt emerging risks. Hear how companies leverage on big data and analytics to identify red flags in fraud risks and how Swire Beverages enhances defence with risk-based cybersecurity. Acquire tips from ANZ’s effective risk culture building by integrating people, processes and tools. The workshop on Implementing Enterprise Risk Management will provide a practical approach in risk identification, assessment and response by benchmarking against known frameworks (COSO ERM, ISO 31000) and learning from real life companies' governance failures.
