[Panel] Coping with the Paradigm Shifts in Corporate Governance and Internal Control: Transforming to Fit the Digital Economy

The current pandemic creates a paradigm shift in the way of working, with more flexibility and stronger digital focus. The traditional approach of centralised control, policies-based corporate governance doesn’t work anymore when everyone works remotely. The situation forms the need for a new and relevant compliance strategy. The session will discuss how the compliance team can address these changes and build more relevant internal control measures that don’t speak a foreign language to the teams.  

  • Areas for revamping: information security, workplace policies, and risk monitoring
  • Compliance outsourcing: balancing between global focus and local relevancy 
  • Digitalisation and automation of the compliance workflow
  • Adopting cloud tech services – policies that can embrace and effectively monitor
  • Identifying new compliance tools for better fraud detection 
  • Conducting remote internal investigations 
  • Rooms to add more strategic values to the business
