 Panel Discussion: Combined Assurance Model - To Preserve, Protect and Grow Company Value

Increasing globalization has created organizations with complex supply chains spread over multiple geographies. Adding to the complexity is the need to meet the demands of both global, as well as regional regulatory bodies and frameworks. The large amount of assurance information that needs to be aggregated and reported across the enterprise further contributes to what expert’s term as “Assurance Fatigue”.

Combined assurance can help solve this problem by transcending functional and geographical silos, and providing the senior management, the audit committee, and the supervisory committee with a comprehensive view of the effectiveness of governance, risk management, and controls in the organization.

  • Understanding combined assurance, and its role in corporate governance
  • How to deliver value, and achieve corporate objectives through a holistic view of governance, risk management, and controls
  • Evolution of the scope of combined assurance due to cyber security, data privacy etc
  • Bridging the gap between combined assurance and the three lines of defense model
