Events : Bank Audit & Risk Committees Conference

Conference Overview

Financial institutions of all sizes are faced with new challenges and risks as they navigate today’s operating environment. In June, Bank Director presents the 14th annual Bank Audit & Risk Commitees Conference – a conference that focuses on governance, risk and compliance, as well as accounting issues challenging financial institutions today. 

Be it data security, emerging technology, fraud, crisis management or the effectiveness of internal controls, this year’s Bank Audit & Risk Commitees Conference covers the key issues that all bank officers and directors must get their arms around. 


Bank Audit & Risk Cybersecurity Seminar
Bank Director’s Cybersecurity Seminar takes a holistic view of cyber risks and compliance matters essential to banking executives and members of a board of directors. The goal of this special event is to provide all involved with a more nuanced understanding of how to respond to real-world cyber incidents and learn from their peers as attendees share their stories and experiences. Throughout the day, we provide actionable strategies and cutting edge tactics that a bank might adopt to better prepare for, and respond to, the ever-expanding threats associated with cybersecurity.

Bank Audit & Risk Committees Boot Camp
There is a great deal of change associated with regulatory oversight, including what needs to be reported and tracked for regulators, what’s in that reporting and how that affects a bank and its growth plan.  Designed for new committee members – and those members who need a refresher, the Bank Audit & Risk Committees Boot Camp provides a crash course in equipping participants to perform as effective members of their board’s audit or risk committee.

Bank Audit and Risk Peer Exchanges
Bank Director hosts its popular peer exchanges the day prior to our annual Bank Audit & Risk Committees Conference.  Small groups of experienced audit and risk committee members, as well as senior bank executives — along with outside advisors — meet in closed-door, off-the-record peer groups for candid discussions about various issues and challenges facing officers and directors today.  Peer exchange groups are assigned by title (director vs. bank officer), bank type (public vs. private) and asset size.
