1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge

Despite significant planning behind systems implementations and business transformations, many organizations struggle to embrace financial governance—creating significant new control gaps and weaknesses. Often these initiatives focus almost exclusively on IT controls and neglect strategic, operational, and business risks. We’ll discuss:

  • Building governance and control considerations into an optimized but resilient design
  • Engaging the three lines—business, compliance, and internal audit—through transformation
  • Understanding clear roles and responsibilities to manage politics across the organization
