The ITCPE Academy has partnered with GFMI, a marcus evans company, who announces the commencement of its Operational Risk Management for Financial Institutions flagship series of events and invites all US-based Operational Risk Managers and Directors in Finance, to attend this niche event and enjoy a peer-to-peer networking environment.

Experts in the field will also examine the regulatory environment, the functionality of risk processes and systems as well as people risk.
