Event Description

The tools that Treasury and Finance professionals need to defend their organizations against today’s threats – and to prepare for tomorrow’s.

Managing and mitigating the risks in a treasury environment draws special attention from the board and other stakeholders. However, the existing control procedures already in place in the organization might not be fully appropriate for the treasury environment. A policy that is not fully applicable to the environment could in itself be seen as a risk as adherence to that policy tends to slip over time. It is therefore crucial that an appropriate Internal Controls Framework is established, supported by robust and tested processes and a system to enforce the framework.

Join us in this exciting conversation with Craig Parker from The Royal Bank of Canada to discuss some of today’s threats in treasury and how we can defend our organizations against these threats.

Presentation to include the following trends:

  • Current and emerging fraud trends facing businesses
  • What is cyber fraud, how does it work, and how to identify it
  • Risks associated with unauthorized access to internal systems and online banking applications
  • Effective business practices and internet controls businesses can implement as part of a robust fraud management program to help reduce the risk of fraud from both inside and outside your business
  • What to do when your business is a victim of fraud
  • Cheque fraud

This luncheon is Approved for up to 1.5 CTP/CCM recertification credits by the Association for Financial Professionals
