In this podcast, I am joined I am joined by Carrie Penman, Chief Risk and Compliance Officer at NAVEX Global, Inc. We visit about their upcoming 2020 virtual conference, NAVEX Next, which is entitled Beyond the Moment.

The theme, Beyond the Moment, defines the 2020 agenda and supports sessions that will help you and your organization move past a defensive stance on current events and trends. The goal is to help everyone be proactive and more holistic in their approach to risk and compliance management. If there is one key message that I have garnered in talking to compliance and other professionals about Coronavirus is that the future demands we be prepared, no matter what comes next.

What are some of the key themes for this conference? Obviously the Coivd-19 lockdowns, work from home and remote working environments have changed a large number of risk factors that every Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) needs to consider from a risk perspective and address from a variety of angles; such as data privacy/protection, communications and training and ongoing engagement.

Last year, NAVEX’s virtual conference had over 9,000 registrants. Best of all is the cost of the conference, its FREE. That is right, all of the above is available at no charge. NAVEX Global has submitted the conference to the Compliance Certification Board (CCB)® and is pending their review for approval of CCB CEUs. It will be held Thursday, October 22, from 10 AM to 4 PM Central Time.  I hope that you will plan to join me for this great event. Registration, agenda and other information are available here.
