Transforming Risk Management into a Driver of Positive Change – Advanced ERM

The turmoil in the world is intense– with unimaginable impact leading to increasing public unrest, fluctuating oil prices, natural disasters of a scale thought unimaginable, volatile stock markets and world economic uncertainty. In this time of global uncertainty how do you steer a course through these difficult waters?

 The answer is to recognise the only real link between all these events – RISK – and then to try to anticipate, manage and then deal with these risks at an enterprise level.  Most organisations have now realised that much more is needed and have developed an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) approach.  This has ensured that risks that were previously managed in isolation can be aggregated and prioritized across the entire business.  Advanced ERM goes one step further. Risks are scored based on business materiality with each risk being evaluated and compared by the financial, legal, reputational, and regulatory impact, and classified by the effect they could have on the business.

New understandings of risk emerge, and efficient controls can be implemented to tackle what really matters to the business, and drive competitive advantage.  In short, the focus becomes strategic risk management.

After completing this course you will be able to

  • Implement appropriate and varied techniques for the identification and assessment of risks
  • Generate measurable value by aligning the ERM framework with corporate performance expectations
  • Engage the Board in the analysis of enterprise risk scenarios
  • Foster a culture that reinforces appropriate risk-taking to balance value creation and value protection
  • Clarify ERM accountabilities of all employees from executives to the front line
  • Implement key risk indicators (KRI’s) for each line of business
  • Enhance achievement of corporate objectives by linking performance targets, and risk management actions
  • Develop risk appetite statements and apply risk tolerance techniques

NOTE: This is an advanced level course and delegates should have 2 years’ experience in a supervisory, management or assurance role.

Join us on 26th (Mon) & 27th (Tue) July 2021 @ African Central Time (GMT +2) from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Participants will also earn 10 CPE credits (in the Management Advisory Services field of study).

Enterprise Wide Assessment of BCP & Crisis Management

As the current global pandemic shows, possibility of a crisis severely disrupting an organization’s ability to operate looms today like never before.  Given the pace with which global threats evolve, incidents such as cyber sabotage, volatile weather patterns, terrorism attacks, and epidemics are increasingly likely.

These events all impact the ability to continue operations and meet stakeholders’ objectives and may even threaten the very existence of the business.  Being able to better recognize potential crises, effectively handle such interruptions, and return to normal operations is extremely difficult.  Gaining the capacity to do this quickly and efficiently with the minimum amount of impact — to be crisis resilient — is that much harder, and the ultimate goal.

 After completing this course you will be able to

  • Understand how to become a more crisis resilient organization
  • Ensure that BCP and the crisis management plans are regularly updated to meet the ever changing risk environment
  • Develop BCP plans that cover all business functions
  • Implement an effective approach for communicating to all stakeholders through each stage of a crisis
  • Deal with extreme risk events in a more managed way
  • Build and oversee an effective BCP team
  • Complete regular crisis management audits

Join us on the 2nd & 3rd June 2021 on Central African Time GMT +2 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.  Participants will also earn 8 CPE credits (in the Management Advisory Services field of study).

7TH & 8TH JUNE 2021 SINGAPORE TIME (GMT +8) 2:00PM TO 5:15PM (AFTERNOON SESSION)

Almost all organisations have some form of business measurement – driven by the rationale of “what gets measured gets managed”. But it is also true that so many organisations are dissatisfied with, and use poorly, their KPI-PMS

There is a wide range of problems frequently associated with such KPI performance management systems; a few of the more common are:

  • Poor alignment between the strategic KPIs at organisational level, versus the departmental and individual employee KPIs
  • Selection of inappropriate KPIs, often on the basis that they are easy to measure
  • Unrealistic and unaligned KPI targets
  • KPI / performance measures that focus on past results, not what is forecast in future
  • A well-meaning, but poorly structured and managed, alignment with compensation.

This programme takes a management overview of the subject and helps attendees to highlights aspects of their organisations’ KPI-PMS that require strengthening / improvement.

Join us and

  • Understand the (often missing…) link between business strategy and relevant “Strategic KPIs”
  • Learn how to link personal KPIs / Objectives to the business strategy
  • Learn about “good practice KPI management” and undertake a gap-analysis assessment for your organisation – a powerful take-away from the course
  • Understand the key features and practicalities of focusing on the future

Cyber security is one of the most urgent issues of the day. Computer networks have always been the target of criminals, and it is likely that the danger of cyber security breaches will only increase in the future as these networks expand, but there are sensible precautions that organizations can take to minimize losses from those who seek to do harm.

Our Trainers are of an international publication on the subject, we have designed this workshop keeping in mind the various common cyber threats and how an auditor performs the role of auditing cyber security. We will be sharing our practical experience of designing information technology risk grading methods and assessing information technology risks for various institutions.

  1. Do you feel that your organisation is technology dependant and the technology infrastructure has been kept outside the scope of standard control mechanism like audit or there is scope of improvement of the audit function?
  2. Do you recognise the need of a standardised framework for information technology risk assessment?
  3. Do you feel that vulnerability testing would be a key function for security auditing?
  4. Do you audit the business continuity function of the organisation?
