Continued global corporate collapses, scandals, and upheavals involve all stakeholders incl. some senior corporate executives, bankers, respected politicians, and ministers. The 12th annual European GRC Summit in London will present clear operational guidance on the primary elements of the GRC3 process.

The annual conference will further provide guidance on the right amount of due diligence on the GRC components to prevent or limit future corporate calamities. Each conference aims to avoid further distrust in the business and financial markets.

Most global companies have now established good governance, risk management, compliance and IT security (GRC) policies and procedures for several years. However, the continued lack of growth in aftermath of the global financial and credit crisis, demands an update, or a ‘second/third wave’ of the GRC intelligence based on the new global structures. The right way to implement the update(s) is based on the GRC3 process based on the GRC components of Ethics and Integrity;

  • A review of leading best practices in governance, risk management, and it security issues:
  • What’s next on the corporate GRC agenda, what’s working and why not
  • We scan the global horizon for the emerging global GRC issues
  • Directing the internal and external audit function effectively,
    • Based on the new EU directives on auditor independence
  • Looking through the periscope of global bribery, fraud and corruption development
  • Steering the it challenges of cyber security, cloud computing and big data
    • Based on the new EU directives on data protection and it security
  • Realization stakeholder value on governance thru shareholder stewardship
  • A road map to successful navigation in the stormy ocean of GRC management with customised roadmaps and frameworks

The 2019 Conference will further focus on GDPR, Integrity, Ethics, IT-Security, Audit Committees and other related issues. We pledge to provide the board of directors, management, auditors and GRC officers and consultants with the opportunity to discuss the current GRC challenges and to share ideas and information to present the GRC challenges and to develop new strategies with colleagues and experts.

The risks and opportunities presented by a complex regulatory environment in Europe are clear incentives for corrupt behavior make matters worse for the international business group. The conference will focus on providing the participants with a system of GRC controls, tests, procedures, protocols and guidelines that are created to endorse develop and promote compliance with international standards for governance, risk management, 3rd party compliance, human rights, corporate social responsibility.

The European corporate community is truly globalised and needs to improve GRC intelligence to optimise how to address the new set of challenges and pressures. At the 2019 GRC Summit, international expert presentations will help participants discover that the GRC scenarios can mitigate some of the critical issues in the international business transactions. The overly regulated oversight reporting requires an integrated compliance landscape where good governance results in optimised risk management and automated compliance processes. The journey of Governance, Risk, Compliance and IT-Security (GRC) conformity, requires a holistic approach in addressing the massive overreach.

The objective of our annual conference is to help you navigate thru the data, networking and ideas; you will need to be more active in your global organisation and meet with the international compliance demands. The London conference focus is to help global companies to achieve appropriate governance and compliance controls, and toward the larger framework of maximizing the business value by improving operational decision making and strategic planning.

The 12th Annual European GRC & DPO Day in London will once again bring together GDPR, governance, risk management, compliance, IT security, legal and audit executives from European corporations and from around the world. During the three days, there will be GRC experts as keynote speakers, concurrent panel sessions, discussions, GRC cases and customised presentations of high-quality and content.

The 12th Annual European GRC & DPO Day in London will present a series of expert presentations, workshops, business cases, best practices, roadmaps and frameworks for structured GRC processes for all stakeholders. The summit will provide the participants with an appropriate level of knowledge, experience, and objectivity, to form an opinion on how GRC and accounting processes can be implemented, based on the relevant facts and circumstances within the context provided by applicable standards and best practices from the conference.
