Time: 13:30 – 17:00
Venue: Deloitte, Mriehel Bypass, B’Kara
Registration: €120
IFS Malta is teaming up with Deloitte to bring you an information session on The Future of Risk in Financial Services.

Today, risk management is at a crossroads. Financial institutions need to decide if they will continue with business as usual or instead fundamentally rethink their approach to risk management. The current volatile business environment has made it more difficult than before for risk management capabilities to keep up.

During the session, Deloitte’s report on ‘the future of risk in financial services’ will be presented, followed by a panel discussion between key industry players. The past and future evolution of risks within the industry will be tackled from various perspectives to provide unique insights to the risk management field. The primary outcome of the panel will be to conclude how institutions can optimise entity-wide operations from a risk management perspective.

1330— 1500 The Future of Risk in Financial Services Report Analysis

1500— 1530 Coffee Break

1530— 1630 Panel Discussion

Delta Summit

MOVING BEYOND THE HYPE.

2018 was the year Malta cemented itself as The Blockchain Island with the launch of three bills during the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit last November.

In 2019, the Blockchain & A.I. Nation is moving beyond the hype. The Maltese Government will enact a world first: a fourth bill, giving a D.A.O. its own legal personality. In addition, a task force is also working around the clock on a set of incentives that will support businesses in Artificial Intelligence.

We would like to invite you – stakeholders in AI, Big Data, Blockchain, IoT and Quantum Technologies – to join us and engage in riveting discussions about the world changing potential application of such technologies.

Save the dates. All eyes are on the Malta AI & Blockchain Summit.

Transforming Internal Audit into an Insightful, Catalyst for Change?
Internal Audit faces a daunting challenge. Businesses are changing as they embrace the innovation economy. Well-documented advances in new technologies and the drive for innovation and digital transformation are upending industries and increasingly are challenging Internal Audit functions to remain relevant. However Internal Audit not only must respond to these changes, but also must be prepared to assess if the business is undertaking its innovation and transformation initiatives in the best possible manner. In order to accomplish this, Internal Audit must innovate itself.

There has probably never been a more important time to have a strong, professional Internal Audit function. The function is now required to provide a much more significant level of assurance. The aim of this seminar is to highlight ways of how Internal Audit can shake off its traditional historic focus and transform itself into a modern, proactive, and future-focused business partner. The function must be guided by a philosophy of adding value to promote positive change and improve the operations of the organisation.

Topics of the agenda
Transforming Internal Audit into a strategic business advisor
Successfully leveraging technology in Internal Audit management
Elevating the stature and perspective of the Internal Audit function
Benchmarking the Internal Audit function against worldwide best practice

Target Audience
This seminar is targeted at Internal Audit practitioners and students, as well as managers of other business and assurance functions who are interested in gaining a better understanding of the Internal Audit function, its challenges and strategic development.
