Thought leadership webinar

From controls chaos to controls assurance.

Thursday, 25 July 2024, 11am-12pm BST

Think of controls as the safety net for your organisation – are there holes in your net? Do you want to find out after someone falls through, or to check that the net is effective first? 

Controls management is an integral part of risk management but can often end up in disarray. Controls can proliferate, leading to unnecessary duplication. The purpose of the controls themselves may not be fully understood, and testing methods can be inconsistently applied. Additionally, there is often limited visibility over the control assurance program – a strong level of assurance promotes confidence which can enable smart risk-taking. 

Join Protecht’s Chief Research & Content Officer, David Tattam, and our Research & Content Lead, Michael Howell to explore how you can build a robust control assurance program and bring it to life. If you aren’t sure whether your organisation is in control, this webinar is for you.
