Why You Should Attend

MENA GRC : Power-Pairing of Risk & Compliance

The MENA region is shifting their business mind-set by adapting more global regulations and business strategies such as diversifying into new developments and putting them in the global lime-light. The introduction and reforming of several regulations within each region such as the New UAE Corporate Governance Code, New Oman Corporate Governance Code, New Saudi Company Law and the IFRS financial reporting standards signifies the shift in today’s regulatory environment where we strive to increase business accountability and transparency. Consequently, combining a holistic view of Governance, Risk and Compliance is no longer an option. 

However, is your organisation still managing these pillars in silos?

Join us in the prestigious 2-day MENA GRC: Preserve, Protect and Perform conference that focuses on transformative impacts when integrating components of interdependent risks, shared controls and compliance initiatives. Raise your company’s credibility by participating in our conference discussions ranging from Regulations and Policies, The Gap within the GRC Framework, Advocators within the Organisation, IT Governance, and Impact of Economy Turmoil on your current GRC practices.

Grow your company’s reputation by illuminating the ability to control risk, drive maximum performance and inspire greater stakeholder confidence.  This conference provides a networking platform for forward thinking leaders to share their tried-and-tested techniques.  

Join us now and be prepared to put into practice key takeaways that will turn the organisation into your beacon of excellence
