Bass, Berry & Sims is hosting the KPMG Fall 2012 Audit Committee Roundtable Series - The New Business Integrity Challenge: Protecting Corporate Assets and the Brand in a Digitized, Global Environment. The event will be held November 29, 2012 at the office of Bass, Berry & Sims in Nashville beginning with breakfast and registration at 7:30 a.m. followed by the panel discussion at 8:30 a.m.
The panel will include Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Howard Lamar. The event will cover a number of timely topics and explore practical approaches for enhancing oversight in this new compliance and cyber-risk environment, including:
- How audit committees and boards are overseeing the company’s efforts to manage and mitigate the risks posed by the increasingly complex array of laws and regulations impacting companies doing business internationally.
- How audit committees and boards can help ensure that cyber risk is being properly managed and that the company’s intellectual property (IP) and digital assets are being protected.
- How companies are using technology and data analytics to provide "early warning"; intelligence and help ensure the integrity of the organization and its assets.
The role of the audit committee, board, and other standing committees in overseeing these business-critical issues. Does the audit committee have the time and expertise?
