The process of mitigating risk begins with identifying the risks within your firm. This is a necessary element in developing and maintaining a strong risk program. In this session, attendees will hear about the practical aspects of creating a meaningful and usable risk assessment, and the benefits that such an assessment can provide to their compliance, operations and other functional areas within the firm, especially during remote working conditions.
• Understand the importance of identifying all critical risks to your firm, including the not so obvious risks, and new risks due to remote working environments, hybrid arrangements and shared work spaces
• Implement and manage a workable risk rating to assist with identifying and prioritizing the most consequential risks that your firm faces
• Identify ways to use your matrix to increase visibility of risks across the organization, assist management in making effective decisions, and map to your overall policies and procedures
• Discuss best practices in reassessing and communicating your risks with management and the regulators
