Today’s risk environment features a high degree of uncertainty due in part to global geopolitical tensions, volatile energy prices, turbulent financial markets, and high inflation. Further, few expected to see large banks collapse following the strict regulatory changes implemented after Lehman Brothers’ 2007 bankruptcy.
Climate change and the increasing number of extreme weather conditions and natural disasters, in addition to growing public scrutiny of corporate behavior and demands for social responsibility, influence not just the future but the present. Meanwhile, we face disruption from rapid advancements in technology — and the social consequences — including digital transformation, artificial intelligence, and automation, and also evolving concerns around data privacy and cybersecurity.
Our distinguished panel will look at the world through the eyes of risk officers of various types of institutions and discuss current and future challenges.

6:50 – 7:45 pm: Panel discussion with risk officers
