“In our annual Law and the Boardroom Study with FTI Consulting last
year, concerns over operational risk garnered the second highest
percentage of responses from both directors and general counsel,” said
TK Kerstetter, chairman of Corporate Board Member. “This event will
empower boards and their management teams to better evaluate emerging
risk exposures to make the right strategic choices.”
Through a mix of expert panel presentations, audience Q&As, in-depth
breakouts, and off-the-record peer group discussions, the event will
take a deep-dive into critical issues such as characteristics of an
effective risk oversight process, data security implications in today’s
digital environment, aligning your compliance programs to mitigate
risks, the board’s and CFO’s respective roles in risk, and the
post-election political and regulatory landscape. Taking place at the
historic and iconic NYSE building, attendees will have the opportunity
to take a tour of the NYSE Trading Floor at the conclusion of the event.
Sponsors of the event include Deloitte, Grant Thornton, PwC, Littler
Mendelson, and Corpedia, an NYSE Euronext Company. To learn more about
