The Current State of Risk Management
For the 5th annual conference, it was appropriate to present a general overview of the current state of risk management, and to do so by focusing on the current state of each major type of risk. So much has happened on the risk front since our last conference a year ago, from increasing operational risks from cyberattacks, to increasing global uncertainty due to a new U.S. President's agenda, every major category of risk had to be included in the agenda.
The conference will bring together professionals in risk management, senior management, and regulators, as well as faculty members and students in the UConn School of Business MS in Financial Risk Management (MSFRM) program.
American Historian and Best-Selling Author and Presidential Historian, CNN
Douglas is uniquely qualified to address political risk. His knowledge and insight into the role of politicians and the impact of their political leadership is second-to-none, and offers glimpses into the strategies that companies are seeking in a time of dramatic change. Political transformations, whether domestic or international, have a profound impact on business today.
