Executive Breakfast Series: Risk Intelligent Compliance

Compliance is big business and the stakes for a firm are high. Yet firms cannot simply dedicate unlimited time and resources to solving compliance problems. The skilled manager must know how to both implement compliance effectively and do so at low cost and without disruption. Successful firms will be able to intelligently manage a full spectrum of risks and make decisions that both effectively and efficiently protect the firm from sanctions and harm.

In this seminar, Dr. Robert Bird, Associate Professor of Business Law, introduces the concept of risk intelligent compliance. He will discuss how to make compliance decisions within an environment of limited time, willpower, and resources. Compliance risk is now simply a fact of life, and something that cannot be completely eliminated. Managers can, however, evaluate the magnitude of various risks and then apply resources in a manner that most efficiently and effectively minimizes exposure to the organization. This seminar will explore multiple kinds of efficiency, the trade-off between risk and cost, and show how firms can best achieve their compliance goals and promote compliance as a source of innovation.

Join us for this informative discussion in Hartford. Complimentary hot breakfast buffet will be served.
