  • Digital assets – an opportunity or risk for securities services?
    Digital assets – an opportunity or risk for securities services?
    Morgan Davis, Reporter, GlobalCapital Recorded: Sep 11 2019 48 mins
    Discussion around digital assets is taking the industry by storm and growing at an unprecedented pace. But as the world embraces the next iterations of technology in banking and capital markets, questions arise. Do we have clear definitions and understandings of these digital assets? How do differing definitions by regulators lead to challenges and conflicts? Have we accounted for the different risks that this technology brings about? Our webinar will find out.

    This discussion will cover the following topics:

    Understanding digital assets
    - The world of digital assets lacks clear definition, and too often people’s minds jump to Bitcoin or the like. So what are we talking about when we say “digital assets”?
    - What are asset backed tokens and how can we use them? How should we understand the benefits of tokenization?
    - How does differing risk appetite globally change the understanding of and demand for digital assets?

    Tackling regulations
    - Regulators are often stymied by new products that don’t fit nicely into traditional buckets. How are regulators looking at digital assets? How does this differ by country?
    - How does the regulators’ understanding of digital assets challenge new participants?
    - Where are the gaps in regulations?

    Challenges and looking forward
    - There are still limitations in the underlying technology that supports digital assets that pose challenges. How do we remedy this?
    - Looking at the example of distributed ledger technology, how do we understand the potential while balancing the flaws and challenges of the technology?
    - What risks do digital assets pose? How do the risks balance with the benefits of digitalization?
    - What potentials of the use of digital assets are not yet being realized?

  • Why T&E audit is more than policy compliance
    Why T&E audit is more than policy compliance
    Subhashis Nath, Head of Enterprise Risk & Compliance, Genpact Recorded: Aug 27 2019 59 mins
    How digital technologies transform T&E audits

    Organizations are failing to solve the employee-spend challenge as travel and expense (T&E) transactions continue to suffer from non-compliance and fraud. Companies also have unnecessarily high audit costs and inadequate risk coverage thanks to manual testing of T&E transactions.
    .
    Leading T&E teams treat audits as more than simply a compliance exercise. They’re embedding digital technologies into their operations – including language neutralization, AI, analytics, machine learning, and case management workflows – to rethink how they address compliance.
    See how you can transform your risk function joining this webinar with the Executive Director of Compliance at Alexion Pharmaceutical, Former Chief Compliance Officer at Coca-Cola, and Senior Ethics & Compliance Professional. You will hear how organizations are:

    - Reducing risk exposure and compliance breaches by reviewing 100% of transactions
    - Enhancing governance and transparency with near real-time visibility of non-compliance
    - Improving employee behavior by identifying behavioral patterns and addressing the root cause of incidents
    - Eliminating the manual effort required for reviewing T&E transactions, reducing audit costs by 40%
