“The Next Lap in Financial Institutions Stress Testing And

Implications for Regulators and Risk Professionals”

Thursday Apr 16, 2015

Ronald Reagan Building, Washington DC  

Synopsis:  Stress testing is increasingly becoming an integral part of a financial institution’s risk management tool, to understand risks, determine capital levels and liquidity needs, and complying with escalating regulatory requirements. Regulators are likely to continue to refine and institutionalize the process for banks and large financial institutions. With increasing investments that banks and financial institutions are plowing in to meet heightened regulatory requirements, these institutions are seeing the need to make much greater use of this new found capability – to identify new risks, potential exposures and take proactive actions to manage the risks as needed.

There will no doubt be new advances in methodology, framework, models and technology to supplement changing developments in stress testing. What would these be? What would be the next lap in Stress Testing for Financial Institutions? How will stress testing evolve and what implications would this have for risk and regulatory professionals?

We would like to discuss and examine these and many other questions at this event, and welcome all risk and regulatory professionals to join us at this event. Seating for this event will be very limited as we expect strong showing from various groups. The registration information will be out shortly. Please keep a lookout and register early for this event.

(4) SINGAPORE June 12, 2015 (Friday):

BOARD GOVERNANCE SERIES:

“Oversight and Management of Cyber Threats

and Security Concerns”

June 12, 2015

8.30 am – 1.30 pm

SGX Auditorium, Singapore

Synopsis:

We are living in an exciting times: digital technologies, mobile devices, cloud computing, big data analytics, and social media have brought about immense benefits and opportunities to corporations as well as individuals; however, there is also a “dark side” to these exciting technology developments, such as snooping, theft, interference, disruption and even destruction. This event will discuss the significant leadership challenges that senior executives and board members need to exercise to manage these emerging risks for their organizations.

Cybersecurity threats are no longer trivial, and significant financial loss, business disruption and negative publicity to the reputation of a corporation are occurring across the globe at an alarming rate. Regulators and consumers are rightfully concerned. Lasting damage can critically destroy significant value built over the years, including reputational harm, litigation, and potential liability for failing to implement adequate steps to protect the company and its’ customers. More recently, we have seen the emergence of derivative lawsuits brought against companies, their executives, and Directors experiencing an attack.

Best practice corporate governance dictates that the Board of Directors is responsible for the management of all risks within a company and accountable for setting the “tone at the top” or risk appetite. Accordingly, Directors need to start asking critical questions: whether their company is appropriately assessing cyber-risk issues and devoting adequate resources to prevent attacks. Directors are not expected to be experts in cyber-risk and cybersecurity; however, they are responsible for ensuring the necessary framework is in place. So what are the challenges senior executives and directors face in fulfilling these responsibilities?

Join us as we invite key representatives from the industry, current and former regulators, bankers, academia, consultants to discuss and share insights on this important topic of governance of corporate cyber threats and security concerns.

Date/ Time:                              June 12, 2015 (Friday),      8.00 am – 12.30 pm
