Growing regulatory environment, higher business complexity and increased focus on accountability have led enterprises to pursue a broad range of governance, risk and compliance initiatives across the organization. However, these initiatives are uncoordinated in an era when risks are interdependent, and controls are shared. As a result, these initiatives get planned and managed in silos, which potentially increases the overall business risk for the organization. Governance, Risk, and Compliance process through control, definition, enforcement, and monitoring has the ability to coordinate and integrate these initiatives.
Strathmore Business School (SBS), in collaboration with Thomson Reuters, is pleased to host the second East Africa GRC Summit scheduled to take place from 17th – 18th October 2018 at Strathmore University Auditorium.
