WORKSHOP: HOW ORGANIZATIONS CAN NAVIGATE THIRD PARTY RISKS IN VALUE CHAINS

GRC functions have an important role to play in today’s rapidly changing Transformative Age. Organizations that need to do more with less are turning to third parties to stay competitive. Third parties help businesses drive efficiency and cost savings, but they also pose complex, ever-evolving risks. These risks include cyber, privacy, financial, reputational, ESG, regulatory, geopolitical, operational, 4th-party and business continuity and resiliency risks.

WORKSHOP: DEFINING A MODERN COMPLIANCE CULTURE

This workshop will be held in Swedish.

Many organizations rely on their second line compliance function when developing and fostering a compliance culture. Instead, for a more effective compliance, mature organizations more and more apply a structured compliance programme adding value. This also enables the organization to demonstrate that compliance is an essential and integrated part of the company. In this interactive workshop the participants will utilize table discussions to explore how to gain value by embedding compliance in the organization, thus providing among other things:

  • Strong and resilient organizations also in times of regulatory challenges;
  • A clear and  common goal for the organization’s compliance strategy;
  • Enabling compliance risk to be a natural part of all business decisions;

Olof Arwinge is an advisor at KPMG Financial Services and a PhD from Uppsala University. He is an author of multiple books in the GRC area. His latest books include “Optimizing internal control”, “Communicate and act for change” and “Introduction to compliance”.

WORKSHOP: PENNINGTVÄTT I PRAKTIKEN- ATT RISKHANTERA RÄTT INNEBÄR OCKSÅ ETT VACCIN MOT ATT BEGÅ BROTT PÅ JOBBET

This workshop will be held in Swedish.

Alla organisationer, både de som lyder under det administrativa regelverket om penningtvätt (PTL) och de som inte gör det, behöver ha kunskaper om vad som gäller straffrättsligt om penningtvätt. Detta för att straffrättens regler, och framför allt reglerna om brottet näringspenningtvätt, gäller alla. I denna interaktiva workshop kommer deltagarna dels bli uppdaterade på vad som gäller rent regelmässigt om penningtvätt, dels att genom diskussioner och fallbeskrivningar komma fram till hur en effektiv riskhantering mot penningtvätt bör se ut.  Delar ur innehållet:

  • Reglerna om penningtvätt och särskilt om brottet näringspenningtvätt
  • Praktiska exempel på hur en effektiv riskhantering mot penningtvätt – enligt både PTL och den straffrättsliga lagen – kan se ut
  • Lärdomar från fällande Högsta domstolen-domar om näringspenningtvätt
  • Specifika lärdomar från den fällande Högsta domstolen-domen om näringspenningvtätt: ”Advokatens överföringar”.
  • Konkreta verktyg för att riskhantera rätt och effektivt mot penningtvätt i styrning, ledning och kontroll – och att det också blir ett vaccin mot att begå brott på jobbet.

Marie Wallin är jurist, författare och tidigare kammaråklagare. Hon arbetar nu i eget konsultföretag med bland annat rådgivning om riskhantering och processande i domstol i penningtvättsfrågor. Utöver detta föreläser och utbildar hon om finansiell brottslighet för bland annat Norstedts juridik, Polismyndigheten, Företagsuniversitetet och SSE Executive Education (Handelshögskolan).

INGRID HARBO
JURIST, KONSULT & STYRELSELEDAMOT

WORKSHOP: ALIGNED ASSURANCE

Forskning visar att organisationer drar mest nytta av sina investeringar i risk- och kontrollfunktioner när dessa funktioner samverkar.

Dagens risker i finansiella institutioner men även i andra typer av bolag är så olika och komplexa att internrevisionsfunktionen inte kan ge försäkran (assurance)  på egen hand, Internrevisorer måste istället samordna och anpassa sitt arbete med andra risk- och kontrollfunktioner.  Funktioner för Riskkontroll, Regelefterlevnad, Internrevision och externa revisorer arbetar ofta – mer eller mindre – i silos, vilket leder till ineffektivitet, inkonsekvenser och bristande transparens.

De flesta institutioner och bolag har erfarit hur snabbt en ryktesrisk kan uppstå och de är på en transformationsresa för att förbättra riskkulturen i hela institutionen och bolaget och stora investeringar görs för att förbättra styrning och interna kontroller. Med detta i åtanke finns det ett behov av en ökad likriktning vid identifiering, hantering och rapportering av risker.

Under denna workshop kommer vi:

  • Utgå från en Problembeskrivning för att sen gå igenom Styrningsprinciper, de olika kontrollfunktionernas roller, uppdrag och bidrag.
  • Diskutera samverkan mellan kontrollfunktioner och vad vi vill uppnå med Aligned Assurance
  • Diskutera hur man gör och gå igenom en del exempel, diskutera framgångsfaktorer för ett samordnat tillvägagångssätt för Assurance Aktiviteter.

Ingrid Harbo är jurist med mer än 30 års erfarenhet från bank och mer än 10 år som kontroll exekutiv med direktrapportering till styrelser. Ingrid har medverkat som föreläsare och lärare vad avser intressekonflikter, regelefterlevnad och samarbetet mellan kontrollfunktioner. Idag är Ingrid konsult och styrelseledamot.

WORKSHOP: AUDITING PEOPLE RISK AND HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT- A STRATEGIC OVERVIEW

People are regularly described as an organisation’s greatest asset. They can also be the source of significant risk. Human capital, diversity, talent management and retention ranked 2nd in the ECIIA’s Risk in Focus 2024’s risk ranking. With nearly 60% of CAEs citing it as a top five risk this year, compared to 50% last year.

We are seeing the great resignation and skills gaps and shortages in key professions and sectors. Employee engagement, talent management, retention, and upskilling are vital to the current and future success of all our organisations. But how well are these done?

Energy and resources are invested in developing HRM and talent strategies, processes, and services yet employee survey results may not be improving, turnover increases and retention is challenging. This taster course will help you provide effective, professional insight and internal audit assurance over key people risks, employee-related processes and HRM activity
