Shared Assessments Program Summit
Addresses Digital Transformation

As organizations embrace the opportunities afforded by digital technologies, they are facing a business ecosystem that will be forever transformed. The 10th Annual Summit includes pre-Summit workshops and is designed as a comprehensive opportunity for learning, networking and sharing around third party risk.

We’ve devoted the week of June 26-30th to bringing together senior executives and other key stakeholders who will share peer best practices and the latest insights in managing third party risk.

Keynote speakers and expert panels will focus on topics that include organization-wide digital transformation and game changing technologies, cyber-risk management, third party risk research, regulation, talent management and cultural transformation. Panel experts in risk, security, technology and talent management will lead frank discussions centered around the keynote topics. The Digital Transformation Panel will provide viewpoints on future outlooks from industry leaders and strategic analysts.

  • A Vendor Panel is being convened to discuss technology vendors in the cloud, IoT, blockchain, mobile and payments. The challenges these technologies bring to the risk management arena will be discussed by panelists Niall Browne, CISO of Domo, Inc; Martin Freeman, Information Security Manager at Dealogic; and James Gellert, Chairman and CEO of Rapid Ratings.
