Emerging regulations are driving significant global reforms in everything from balance sheets and capital adequacy to consumer protection.

This workshop will guide and inform delegates on how to build and implement an Upstream Regulatory Risk Management framework irrespective of the sector and size of business you work in.

The focus will be on how technology can be utilised to assist the practitioner in the identification, assessment and implementation of an Upstream Risk Management Framework. The workshop will also consider this in the context of expectations from various stakeholders, including the Central Bank of Ireland, in respect of transparency and timelines.

A real-world case-study relevant to the financial services sector will follow the presentations. It will apply the principles discussed in the presentations.

The Building Blocks series is specifically aimed at those new to the compliance profession, those newly qualified from the PDC programme, and those who are looking to move into the area of compliance as a career. 

The purpose of these workshops  is to have practitioners deliver their thoughts on the topic and to engage with those attending to try to address, discuss and share approaches to tackling particular issues members/member groups have.
