Plenary Session 4 | View from the Board: Profiling Risk Through the Audit Committee

Corporate governance and compliance frequently intersect at the Audit Committee. Anticipating the Committee’s concerns is essential so that ethics & compliance reporting is in lockstep with the goals of the board. Chief among the concerns is addressing the risk portfolio and the effectiveness of the compliance program. What are the top concerns among Audit Committees today? What are the reporting elements that need to be considered so communication is clear and on point? This panel of board and audit committee members will share the current thinking around risk assessment and the shifting expectations for the board when it comes to elevating compliance through the Audit Committee.
