The Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM), a business unit of Diversified Communications, is pleased to announce the offering of two exclusive educational workshops at this year’s Oracle OpenWorld to be held in San Francisco from October 25 through October 29, 2015. IOFM worked with the Oracle GRC team to develop the workshop content, case studies, and tools focused on governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC). Attendees of both workshops will receive a total of 1.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) granted by IOFM. These CEUs can be used towards maintaining a professional designation.

Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director of IOFM, is “pleased to have the opportunity to work with Oracle and is proud to be a part of this year’s Oracle OpenWorld conference.”

“Modern Risk Management: Framework & Best Practices to Develop an Internal Controls & Compliance,” will be offered on Monday, October 26 from 3:30 to 4.30 PM in the Cooper Room at the Hotel Zelos and will be presented by internal controls and compliance expert Chris Doxey, CAPP, CCSA, CICA, CPC. Ms. Doxey looks forward to presenting her workshop and notes, “Although risk assessment methodologies have been around for quite a while, their prominence in the compliance field is a fairly recent phenomenon. The new view is that compliance risk management programs can no longer just be “adequate”. The expectation is that organizations commit the appropriate resources to risk management solutions and to establish and maintain a “strong” culture of compliance, ethics and risk management. Compliance risks come in all shapes and sizes and affect every facet of the business – specifically the Record to Report (R2R) process.”

The second IOFM sponsored workshop, “Your Top Procure-to-Pay Risks & the Case for Automating Controls,” will be presented by Jon Casher on Tuesday, October 27 from 2:30 to 3:30 PM also in the Cooper Room at the Hotel Zelos. When asked about his workshop, Mr. Casher explained, “This unique and interactive workshop will analyze “real life” case studies from the all components of the Procure to Pay (P2P) process that include: Procurement, T&E, P-Card, AP, and Disbursements. The attendees will have an opportunity to discuss “what went wrong” and will determine the key internal controls that were missing.”
