The GRC landscape continues to change as organizations navigate the effects of Covid-19, the Biden administration’s focus on regulation, the ongoing aftermath of Brexit and an increased focus on ESG.
Unprecedented changes in lifestyle during the coronavirus pandemic have led to an acceleration in shifts in criminal behaviour, businesses have made racial justice, diversity and inclusion pledges and US banks face climate stress tests.
Today, GRC is everyone’s business and this series, led by Michael Rasmussen will shine a spotlight on the governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) trends that will shape the agendas of the C-suite, in particular; CEO’s, CFO’s, CISOs, CIOs, CRO’s, CPO’s and CTOs in 2021 and beyond
