Join Governor Software & CastleHill to hear about the Regulators Move to Individual Responsibility for Internal Governance - What's at Stake? 12 September 2018, NYC

Castle Hill & Governor Software


Governor Software & CastleHill Risk Management are pleased to present this session about the Regulators move to Individual responsibility for internal governance – what’s at stake


In the past few years, financial regulators have come to the conclusion that corporate fines for specific regulatory breaches are not enough to change behaviours in regulated firms. They are now focusing on two specific things:

  • Individual accountability
  • Internal governance


In order to stay out of trouble in this new regime, senior managers at firms need to do two things:

  • Be clear on those areas of the business for which they are accountable and responsible
  • Have excellent oversight of those areas and evidence of that oversight

Despite having a wealth of systems and data, gaining that aggregated & actionable oversight remains truly challenging.


Email  to register to join CastleHill and Governor Software at Morton’s Steakhouse for a drink and a bite to eat from 6pm on 12 September, 2018, and find out how risk and compliance executives can help their senior managers to achieve their goal leveraging the power of RSA Archer & Governor Software.
