IBF webinar with StarCompliance : COVID-19's impact on compliance and risk management

2 Dec 2020

COVID-19 has redefined the business environment for many industries across global markets. As businesses race to adapt to changes that happened almost overnight, the challenges are not only external but also internal. Not only do organisations have to urgently address the impact of the pandemic on market and credit risks, they also have to relook at business processes and adapt internal operations to support the new normal of remote working arrangements.

Join us in this IBF webinar organised in collaboration with StarCompliance, who will share key findings from their recent survey on the impact of COVID-19 on compliance globally.

We will also hear from a panel of industry practitioners on the key challenges they faced during this period and how they have adapted their processes to address the new risks and challenges faced, as well as how they have prepared their employees and equipped them with new skills to meet the challenges posed in the new work environment, as the COVID-19 crisis continues.
