We are now living in a time of peak uncertainty and volatility as businesses contend with numerous risks that affect their business continuity. While uncertainty puts pressure on management to perform, it also presents vast opportunities for growth, innovation and the adoption of best practices for effective risk management.

To support members in navigating uncertainty through better risk controls, the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA) is organising the annual Risk Management Conference 2023 on 11 October 2023 (Wednesday) at Connexion Conference & Event Centre @ Nexus, Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur to discuss key issues affecting business continuity, including artificial intelligence, corruption risk and good tax governance.

Bringing together top tier risk experts, this important Conference will provide insights into the latest key issues and challenges related to the Conference theme of “Staying Ahead of Emerging Risks. Delegates can expect guidance and recommendations for implementing a robust regulatory framework that encompasses comprehensive risk management practices geared to enhance organisational practices, reputation, accountability, and responsibility toward their stakeholders. 

By the end of the Conference, delegates will have a better grasp of how to:

  • Manage and mitigate the risks and uncertainties of an organisation’s business continuity plan (BCP). 
  • Analyse the adoption of the ISSB Standards and how organisations can better align their operations with the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable economy. 
  • Address greenwashing and the associated liability risks for organisations. 
  • Address challenges posed by AI and related risks to ensure that AI is used beneficially. 
  • Strengthen your organisation’s defences against corruption, foster a culture of integrity, and protect your reputation in an increasingly complex and challenging business environment. 
  • Adopt tax governance best practices that can help organisations manage tax compliance risks to business continuity.

The Conference will also feature discussions and Panel Discussions as follows:
