  • Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package.
    Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package. Boris Agranovich, Calvin Lee Recorded: Jun 27 2017 62 mins
    Join me and our guest, Calvin Lee, Operations Director at RISKID, for a lively discussion as we aim to dispel confusion surrounding many of the elements of the Operational Risk framework.


    Operational risk is perhaps the most significant risk organizations face. Virtually every major loss that has taken place during the past 30 years, from Enron, Worldcom and Baring's Bank to the unauthorized trading incident at Société Générale and the subprime credit crisis, has been driven by operational failures.

    Many financial institutions have spent millions of dollars trying to develop a robust framework for measuring and managing operational risk. Yet, in spite of this huge investment, for many firms developing a viable operational risk management (ORM) program remains an elusive goal.

    This webinar is designed for both current students of the “Mastering Operational Risk” - http://www.globalriskacademy.com/p/orm online course and for other busy risk professionals who are interested in studying both theoretical and practical application of ORM but don’t have time to attend in-person classes.

    The goal is three-fold:

    1. Existing students will be able to understand more on how to work with the RISKID tool and get an opportunity to ask questions about the subject matter.
    2. People who are planning to join the course will get some explanation in what is the course about, how the e-learning system works.

  • Applying ESG factors into a real estate
    Applying ESG factors into a real estate Hugh Wheelan Recorded: Jun 26 2017 63 mins
    Applying ESG factors into a real estate strategy: the latest data and evidence on the financial case for doing so and the practical, pragmatic way to do it.

    Investors increasingly appreciate the value of incorporating ESG criteria into their real estate exposure – both direct and indirect (via REITS) - but are uncertain of the full financial picture and potential environmental impact reduction now and over time.
    They also worry that such strategies might be too costly or complex, but they needn't be: product development is moving forward rapidly.


    Join real estate experts from Northern Trust, PGGM and GRESB to hear presentations and ask your questions on topics including:

    •Which ESG factors impact returns for buildings, portfolios and real estate companies, and to what extent? The data points you need to be aware of.
    •What ESG factors should then be blended into investment a real estate investment strategy: why and how?
    •What is the availability of benchmarking tools on the financials and impact measurement for ESG risks and improvements?
    •Engagement and ESG in property: what are the technical differences of investor activism in the property sector?

    Forget Oracle, IBM or any of the other big-name, publicly traded acquirers that – until now --have always set the tone in the tech M&A market. If a tech deal printed in 2017, the buyer is more likely a private equity firm than any of the well-known serial acquirers on the US stock market. This is the first time in the history of the multibillion-dollar tech M&A market that financial acquirers have been busier than these strategic acquirers. To understand how the ever-growing influence of buyout shops is reshaping the tech industry, join 451 Research for an hour-long webinar on Thursday, Sept. 7 2017.
  • Cyber Resiliency: Reducing Your Risk By Increasing Your Resiliency
    Cyber Resiliency: Reducing Your Risk By Increasing Your Resiliency Stephen Head, Mike Gerdes, and Jeff Butler of Experis Finance Sep 12 2017 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Managing operational resilience in today’s digital environment is extremely challenging, whether your organization is public, private or governmental. In response to the continued growth of cyber-attacks, many organizations have decided it’s time to focus more of their efforts on cyber resiliency. This approach to proactively dealing with the potential outcome of cyber-attacks increases the organization’s awareness of the potential impacts and costs, and enables them to take actions that reduce the overall risk to the organization, minimize the impact of cyber-attacks, and more predictably ensure the continuity of essential services.

    This webinar will provide a high-level overview of cyber resiliency and explore the following aspects of cyber resiliency:

    • Where cyber resiliency differs from traditional business continuity management
    • How to determine your organization's need for cyber resiliency
    • Practical ways to assess your current and future organizational exposure
    • Who should be involved in cyber resiliency
    • What are some practice steps to begin implementing a cyber resiliency program

    Whether or not you have embraced a formal cyber resiliency program, this session will provide some practical advice on what cyber resiliency is, how to incorporate it in your organization’s overall business continuity management efforts, and what cyber resiliency can mean to improving your organization’s ability to withstand a cyber attack.

  • Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification
    Reduce Friction and Cut Compliance Costs with Digital ID Verification Sarah Clark, General Manager- Identity, Mitek Systems Sep 20 2017 1:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    The latest EU Anti-Money Laundering directive will significantly increase the frequency with which financial service providers need to conduct ‘Know Your Customer’ (KYC) checks. To maximise the effectiveness of digital transformation initiatives, financial services and other regulated industries must find effective digital identity verification solutions.

    Current methods for identity verification checks place an enormous cost burden on banks, payments processors, and lenders, as most methods rely heavily on manual processes. Furthermore, these processes are cumbersome for users, driving away potential customers.

    Figuring out how to balance the competing needs of compliance and costs against the expectations of today’s digital native users is key to any financial service provider looking to win and retain new customers.

    During this webinar, our panel of experts will discuss the following topics:
    Quantifying the cost of manual, inefficient KYC checks and processes
    Examining the impact of the latest AML regulations on financial institutions, payments processors, and lenders
    How digital ID verification can help keep customer acquisition safe, compliant, and cost effective
  • Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking
    Cultivating Your Strategic and Creative Thinking Dr. Ted Marra Sep 20 2017 2:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Join our guest, Dr. Ted Marra as he introduces his new leadership course in Global Risk Academy.

    During the webinar we will cover:

    How does a truly strategic organization think? What is strategic thinking versus strategic planning? What are the vital few factors that will determine your organisation’s long-term success or failure and are they on your radar screen?

    Who should attend.

    People with 10 years management experience minimum up to and including C-Level in all disciplines responsible for strategic decisions or large scale operational issues - so they have large budget and many people reporting to them.

    Managers and senior management from all areas of the organisation having responsibility for planning and achievement of key business objectives.

    Why you should attend.


    - Reflect on how you got where you are as an organisation;

    - What factors were critical to your success? What factors were the basis for your success?

    - What held you back – prevented you from being even more successful?
    - What could you have done differently


    Understand what are the most critical factors that will better ensure your organisation is a “winner” in the future (e.g., next 3-5 years).

    Find out which ones you may be missing and what to do about it before it’s too late and you become just an “average or good” organisation when, with a little effort and the right strategic thinking and creativity, you could take the organisation to the next level of performance and move toward “greatness”.

    How to build exceptional stakeholder relationships and why doing this is critical in especially in turbulent times.
  • Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance
    Win and Wow Customers – 6 Best Practices for Onboarding in Banking and Insurance Sheryl Kingstone-451 Research, Jim Marous-Financial Brand, and Sarah Johnson-Kofax Sep 21 2017 6:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Banks, credit unions and insurance companies may have differing business models, but they all have a common goal: better conversion and retention rates.

    Fortunately, better customer onboarding usually translates to better conversion and retention. For this reason, organizations continue to invest in digital technologies to streamline operations and eliminate time-consuming online interactions in areas such as new account opening, loan origination and policy applications.

    Those first information-intensive interactions, of course, are the most critical: you usually only get once chance to win a new customer’s business. But winning is only part of the equation. What if you could win—and wow—customers from those first moments and keep them engaged throughout the onboarding process?

    Mark your calendars for this upcoming webinar, where industry experts will share six best practices to help your organization win and wow customers:

    • Easy—Enable instant image and data capture via web and mobile technology
    • Accurate—Extract data from pictures of physical documents without error-prone manual entry
    • Automated—Invest in workflow tools to automate and track completion of process steps
    • Visible—Empower staff and customers with process transparency and timely communication
    • Consistent—Ensure data is complete and integrated across internal systems
    • Efficient—Meet expectations for speed, while effectively managing regulatory risks

    Speakers will include:
