Description: 

Life is full of risks and the role of the finance officer in managing that risk goes beyond buying an insurance policy, planning for natural disaster, or establishing cyber-security policies. However, this also does not mean that finance officers need to develop a plan to deal with every  possible risk that their government might face. Rather, finance officers need to develop skills in risk awareness. This ability to recognize the potential for loss, the possible magnitude of the loss, and the probability that the loss will occur is essential in leading financially sustainable organizations. Speakers in this session will help you develop practical skills and a new approach for analyzing both simple and complex scenarios for your government.
