FERMA Seminar 2016 – a setting for communication, education and leadership

The Seminar is an event by risk managers for risk managers. Join us! For more programme information and registration: http://archives.ferma.eu/ferma-seminar-2016/

 

Risk managers often say they do not get enough opportunities to get together with their colleagues from across Europe and discuss the topics that really concern them. The programme for the FERMA Seminar 2016 is now available and shows that we have responded to this feedback.  We have involved our member associations and their members in creating a setting for communication, education and leadership. Here are the sessions they have organised.

Association workshops

Airmic: Risk leadership on the boardroom agenda – the risk manager’s professional contribution

This session will discuss the challenges for board in meeting their increased risk responsibilities and suggest ways in which risk managers can support them through helping them to embed risk management as part of the business model.

MARM: Insurance captives and cells in Malta

Host association MARM will offer risk managers practical insight from two perspectives as to how local companies have navigated through Solvency II and benefitted from it. The session will also look at the situation of protected cell captives under Solvency II.

BELRIM: cyber risks – seeing them happen

“There is no golden panacea in cyber crime and cyber security,” says expert Peter Hacker, a partner at Distinction Global, part of the Cybercrime Research Institute. Instead, Peter and colleague Professor Marco Gercke will simulate a cyber attack on a fictional company in this session organised by BELRIM.

The scenario will challenge participants – representing the executive board of the fictional company – to respond to a major incident and its consequences. The workshop, explains Peter, will use powerful, insightful information and artificial intelligence-based simulation tools so that participants feel at first hand the difficult questions they would face.

Not only is there a potential for massive contractual, reputational and financial damages, but a threat to the continuity of top management and even to the integrity of the business. Boards of corporations have been battered by demands for restructuring, unwanted M&A bids and shareholder lawsuits. Clearly, cyber risks are an enterprise exposure where the risk manager has an important role to play.

 

Member roundtables

Here is an opportunity for risk managers to talk with their colleagues about key issues in a setting of confidentiality.

Resilience and business continuity

This discussion will consider what resilience means, how to contribute to the organisation’s resilience, where business continuity comes into play and how to integrate it into governance arrangements.

Risk management and SMEs

After the successful session on SMEs at the Forum in Venice in 2015, we received requests for more on the same subject. It is an important topic not just for SMEs themselves but also for large companies with SME suppliers.

ERM and leadership

Leadership is one of FERMA President Jo Willaert’s themes and he will lead this discussion of topics such as: practical approaches for getting started with ERM, strengthening ERM for strategic advantages and using ERM to support leadership and recognition of the risk manager.

Digital risks

As our operations become more sophisticated in their use of technology, so too our vulnerabilities increase. This round table will discuss threats, roles, mitigation, preparedness, insurance and regulation of digital risks.

Financial transparency initiatives

This roundtable will discuss the impact on risk management of financial transparency initiatives such as the OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) measures and EU Country-by-Country Reporting.

 

Be the first: take the Rimap® examination

Participants at the Seminar will have the opportunity to be the first to take the examination leading to FERMA’s rimap certification. More details to come…


FERMA announces first accreditations for its certification programme, rimap®

The Federation of European Risk Management Associations (FERMA) has announced the first six education bodies to receive accreditation for its professional certification rimap®. Accredited education programmes in risk management, certification examination and continuing professional development are the corner stones of this new rimap® professional recognition programme for risk managers in Europe developed by FERMA.

FERMA President Jo Willaert commented: “Education is one of the three priorities of my term as president. Having rimap® accredited education programmes is a building block in our long term initiative to place risk management firmly among the professions. I am delighted with the support we have received from the member associations who have worked closely with FERMA and the education bodies to achieve this first set of accreditations. Others will follow.”

The Chairman of the rimap® steering committee, FERMA board member Michel Dennery, added: “We believe we are at the beginning of a European network in risk management education. Beyond the need for increasing the skills and competences of risk managers, the FERMA rimap® initiative is now supported by the world of education.”
