Bank Audit & Risk Committees Conference

Conference Overview

Bank Director's annual Bank Audit & Risk Committees Conference focused on governance, risk and compliance, and accounting issues challenging financial institutions today. Be it data security, emerging technology, fraud, crisis management and/or the effectiveness of internal controls, this year's event surfaced the key issues that all bank officers and directors must know.

Pre-Conference Opportunities:
Bank Audit & Risk Committees Peer Exchanges
Exclusive to Bank Audit Committee Chairs, Bank Risk Committee Chairs, Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Internal Auditors, CFOs, CROs and General Counsel, Bank Director hosted these popular peer exchanges the day before the annual conference begins. Modeled upon our annual Bank Chairman/CEO Peer Exchange, small groups of bankers - along with one or two outside advisors - met in closed door, off-the-record peer groups for candid discussions about various hot topics. Peer groups are divided based on directors vs officers, the committee the director serves, (risk vs. audit), asset size and type of institution, (public vs. private).

Back by Popular Demand: Bank Audit & Risk Committees Primer
The Bank Audit & Risk Committees Primer has consistently been one of our most well received programs! This event provided an up-to-the minute, hands-on, interactive overview for both newer Audit and Risk Committee members and chairs, as well as for those more seasoned members and chairs. The objectives of the primer were to demystify the roles of the audit and risk committees, to equip participants to perform effectively and sustainably as a committee member/chair, to provide confidence in the execution of committee duties and to provide attendees with context in order to maximize their overall conference experience.

Cybersecurity Workshop
While many individual directors and officers identify cyber risk as a top issue, few bank boards spend time addressing scenarios or developing plans should a hack, breach or attack occur.  This workshop provided a series of simulations designed to walk board members and executives through real-life scenarios.  Prior to, and following, each simulation, attendees received an executive-level presentation that laid out current best practices to help boards better understand, and prepare for, cybersecurity issues.
