Governance, Risk and Compliance 2019
Effective IT governance in the interconnected business world

Conference: 20 February
Workshops: 21 February
The Forum, Bryanston

GRC has evolved from being isolated to just a few functions in the organisation to being integrated into every aspect of business. For a successful GRC framework that can meet today's business and digital demands, there needs to be a paradigm shift within organisations.

Join us at the ITWeb Governance, Risk and Compliance 2019 conference to gain insight from industry experts, thought leaders and GRC practitioners on how to manage a complex regulatory and risk environment in a technologically driven world.
