Oxial and GreySpark make the case for digital compliance at OpRisk Europe

June 13, 2017

New partners team up again to demonstrate how compliance urgently needs to join the digital age.

London 13 June, 2017 New generation GRC solution provider OXIAL, and financial markets specialist GreySpark are teaming up for a joint presentation at OpRisk Europe 2017, that addresses digital compliance  myth or must?

Despite the rise of digital technologies across the enterprise, compliance is an area that remains curiously untouched by digital according to Eric Berdeaux, CEO, OXIAL:

Compliance is an on-going requirement, growing in complexity and volume with each year that goes by. The idea that analogue tools such as Excel are suitable for such an important role is at best outdated and at worst a dereliction of duty and at OpRisk Europe 2017 we will be outlining the importance of deploying digital tools to manage compliance.

Eric will be presenting with Charles Mo, Managing Consultant, GreySpark, and will be addressing questions such as how to change from a chaotic compliance assessment process to a perpetual seamless digital process, what will change with the compliance supervision digitisation and how can you dramatically reduce risk of noncompliance and forestall risk of malicious behaviour?

OpRisk Europe is an award-winning event in its 19 year, and is organised by leading industry title, Risk.net. The conference always seeks to address the ebb and flow of industry trends in op risk and will gather more than 300 senior operational risk directors from leading top-tier banks, buy-side firms and regulators from across Europe.

The event will see around 80 industry thought leaders share their expertise on topics such as establishing a firm-wide risk taxonomy and GRC to reducing errors and misses. Details of the OXIAL and GreySpark presentation are below:

Where:             OpRisk Europe 2017, Marriott Grosvenor Square, London

When:               Monday, 13 June. 14:05 – 14:35

Who:                 Eric Berdeaux, CEO, OXIAL and Charles Mo, Managing Consultant, GreySpark

Not only can digitisation help with managing compliance requirements, but it can also play a major role in managing a host of other types of risk, according to Eric Berdeaux.

2017 has seen an unprecedented volume of risks and threats to a business, ranging from political uncertainly and instability to high-profile cyber-attacks that can bring an organisation to its knees. Addressing these risks and protecting a business against them is possible, but by far the most effective way of doing so is via digitisation. I look forward to discussing the importance of digitisation in compliance at OpRisk 2017, and hearing more about delegates own experiences when applying digital technologies to managing compliance.
