“In our annual Law and the Boardroom Study with FTI Consulting last year, concerns over operational risk garnered the second highest percentage of responses from both directors and general counsel,” said TK Kerstetter, chairman of Corporate Board Member. “This event will empower boards and their management teams to better evaluate emerging risk exposures to make the right strategic choices.”

Through a mix of expert panel presentations, audience Q&As, in-depth breakouts, and off-the-record peer group discussions, the event will take a deep-dive into critical issues such as characteristics of an effective risk oversight process, data security implications in today’s digital environment, aligning your compliance programs to mitigate risks, the board’s and CFO’s respective roles in risk, and the post-election political and regulatory landscape. Taking place at the historic and iconic NYSE building, attendees will have the opportunity to take a tour of the NYSE Trading Floor at the conclusion of the event.

Sponsors of the event include Deloitte, Grant Thornton, PwC, Littler Mendelson, and Corpedia, an NYSE Euronext Company. To learn more about the Risk Oversight in the Boardroom event and to view the complete event agenda, visit
