Webinar Summary

As finance leaders take on increasing responsibility for risk and compliance, they cannot afford to overlook the importance of data stewardship and associated compliance risks. Finance leaders typically depend on enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems as their primary sources of their companies' financial data. But despite their understanding of how to gather and analyze financial data, many finance leaders do not know whether their companies' data is vulnerable to technical risks that diminish their controls frameworks and, as a consequence, increase the risks to their businesses not only associated with security breaches but also with audit findings and compliance-related penalties.

By attending this webinar, you will learn:

  • How ERP systems are typically assessed versus what's missing,
  • What areas of vulnerability finance leaders are most likely to overlook when evaluating the risk postures of their companies' ERP systems, and
  • Best practices finance leaders can use to identify, monitor, and mitigate compliance risks related to their ERP systems.
