Virtual Event: Public Sector Governance, Risk and Compliance

Redesigning Frameworks to Integrate a Resilient Corporate Governance and Risk Culture

Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Start: 12:00pm ET / 9:00am PT

Agenda Overview:

In 2020, governments all over the world faced the pandemic crisis, an external risk event where they had to rapidly adapt, find new ways of working and implement innovative measures in order to support their citizens and economies. Thereby, exposing them to various risks such as cyber security threats and data breaches.

As public sector agencies work towards the post pandemic recovery phase, there is a renewed focus on building enterprise resiliency and transparency to be better prepared for risks in the future. Risk leaders would have to rethink and redesign governance, risk and compliance frameworks and how to embed these at all levels.

Achieving this is often a complex process which requires a reassessment of current and future operating processes as well as a cultural transformation to help educate and bring the entire organization on board.

To help you on this journey we’ve put together the Public Sector Network’s Public Sector Governance, Risk and Compliance virtual event, which brings together a broad group of risk experts to help you redesign ERM frameworks, increase resiliency, transform risk culture and drive improved outcomes for citizens.
