The WSTA is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a panel discussion targeted to financial services technology professionals in New York City on January 14, 2014 on “The Cost of Compliance and IT Risk” with keynote and moderator Dr. Howard Rubin, CEO and Founder, Rubin Worldwide. In addition to Dr. Rubin, there will be several other panelists who will share their insight into the topic.
There is no question that the IT "Intensity" of financial services organizations is on the rise. One of the drivers of the new technology economics is the cost of compliance and IT Risk. While many organizations have focused on measuring such costs from the "input-side", the real focus needs to be on the "outcome-side". This discussion and panel will focus on the elements of both the costs of compliance and IT risk along with the outcome of such technology investment. "The ability to effectively and efficiently manage IT risk will be a determinant of competitive advantage and thereby business success for the foreseeable future," said Dr. Rubin.
