Risk Management vs Compliance – Case Studies

All too often, people are confused or misunderstand what is Risk Management and what is Compliance. Most companies have both a Risk Management function and a Compliance function. For these functions to be effectively chartered in a company, it is important for executive and senior management of the company to fully understand the roles and responsibilities of each function and how the two functions differ. This then will support the construction of an operating framework for each function that will provide the function with the guidance required to carry out their respective duties as well as to complement each other in certain areas of oversight.

To support the understanding of each function, the first segment of the presentation addresses the roles and responsibilities of each function and how they differ. The second segment of the presentation will then examine nine cases of risk episodes that companies/operating entities actually experienced. Each of these cases will demonstrate the Risk Management and Compliance as well as general management deficiencies that contributed to the risk event experienced. It should be noted that these case studies, in addition, will provide very interesting insight into the importance of risk management in general.
