Integrity Due Diligence for Security Practitioners

Monday, 8 December
16:40-17:30
Breakout 2

In recent years, companies are facing ever-increasing regulatory pressure resulting in potentially significant fines. The ability to identify indicators of compliance risks in dealing with vendors, business partners and acquisition targets therefore becomes a crucial component of a company’s risk management strategy, in particular when operating in developing and rapid growth markets. This presentation will draw upon a number of practical examples to demonstrate how the specialized capabilities of the security function can be used in the process to detect risk indicators and what aspects of a company’s operations are particularly vulnerable.
