Risk is inherent in everything we do. Despite best efforts it is impossible to control everything. Organizations face numerous risks that can prevent the entity from achieving desired outcomes. No one, least of all those working in the public sector, can ignore risks -- they must be managed. Unfortunately, like most things, this can be easier said than done. Risk management can be tricky, but when done right it can be invaluable.

INFONEX's two-day Risk Management for the Public Sector will bring together thought leaders to discuss and identify ways to continually optimize your organization's risk management practices. Our expert faculty of speakers will share timely information and proactive approaches for manoeuvring and anticipating likely eventualities, both good and bad.

Transformation is a key activity in government at all levels. The need to respond to changes in the economy, policy direction and an increased focus on effectiveness and results, taken together, create a strong business case to review, streamline and enhance your implementation of risk management. In some departments, agencies and organizations risk management has degraded and become an obligatory "tick box" exercise, the same risks continue to be assessed and no effort is made to remove risks that no longer apply or to identify new and emerging risks that are arising from changes in the economy, security and governance.

Get a better understanding your organization's culture and potential threats posed by the wrong corporate culture. Hear best practices for integrating planning, risk management, and performance reporting. Examine the best practices for integrating internal controls into your risk management program. Find the balance between reducing cyber-related risks and managing business demands. Learn how to develop a forward-looking approach will mitigate threats to your organization's reputation.
