Why You Should Attend

Strategic Risk Leader

How many times have you, as a CRO, been asked this one question;

Give us an honest opinion, what is about to hit us from the external environment?

The rapidly evolving risk landscape of the GCC countries has fuelled companies to include risk management in their strategic agenda. Furthermore, improving oil prices in some countries have contributed to some of the world’s highest GDP growth rates. Moreover, escalating investments in public and private infrastructure and changes in the social and political environment subject businesses to increased market volatility. The challenge of identifying, prioritising and mitigating risk is viewed in a more holistic manner, paving the way for what has become known as Strategic Risk Management.

Marcus Evans takes pride in organising our MENA CRO: Strategic Risk Management event scheduled for 7th – 9th October, 2019 in Dubai, UAE.

Effective strategic risk management practices prove pivotal for organisations aspiring for greater economic and social progress and improvement of business function. Most organisations across the MENA region have been adopting Enterprise Risk Management especially after the global financial crisis. As this becomes a regulatory requirement within the GCC, many are assuming that with such implementation of a risk aware culture, a CRO then becomes a debatable position in the C-Suite. Thus, leading to an increase in demand for risk management practices in the daily strategic activities of organisations today. Despite law enforcement agencies around the world imposing more than US$11b of financial and regulatory penalties globally, the GCC market remains one of the most dynamic markets in strategic risk development. Thus, opening up many business opportunities to international risk solution providers.

Attend this event to examine the critical issues in Strategic Risk Management, explore how different sectors can grow in the context of an economic crisis and how to deliver more with less, thereby taking advantage of the unprecedented opportunities.

This event focuses on the key areas;

Theme One: Digital Transformation and Information Security                   

Theme Two: Operational Excellence through ERM

Theme Three: Regulatory Compliance                                  

Theme Four: Data Analytics in Strategic Risk Management
