Since the Dodd Frank Act was enacted, there are many new regulations that have already impacted the financial services industry. But it’s not over. The regulatory bodies are still finalizing more rules.
The IIA Pittsburgh Chapter and RiskSpan are co-sponsoring this seminar to help our members enhance awareness and understanding of some of the myriad of new rules under the Act. This enhanced understanding will prove to be valuable as we perform risk identification and assessment as part of compliance programs, annual audit planning, and engagement planning.
RiskSpan, a recognized industry leading boutique advisory firm, assists financial services organizations in operational advisory, data/analytics, and regulatory/compliance matters. Headquartered in Vienna, VA, the firm employs approximately 75 subject matter experts in all facets of risk mitigation, with a concentration in the utilization of data to make informed risk mitigation decisions.
