Leading banking industry experts will share their experiences regarding AI, machine learning, and blockchain, as well as their views on evolving cyber resiliency and third-party risk management practices at GCOR XIII. The Risk Management Association's 13th annual Governance, Compliance, and Operational Risk Conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency, Cambridge, Mass., April 10-11, 2019.

Alice Wang, managing director, global head of CIB Operational Risk, JPMorgan Chase, will be a keynote speaker, outlining ways banks can prepare now for the transition from Libor to the new reference rate.

The conference will also feature sessions on topics such as effective challenge; risk appetite; LIBOR risk management; agile risk management; and additional programming on culture, conduct, and reputation risk.

“As the industry transitions away from Libor, internal communication and collaboration with working groups is critical. Everyone at the institution must be coordinated, and banks must educate their clients on ways to remove their dependence from Libor-based products and transition to the new reference rate,” said RMA Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel Edward J. DeMarco, Jr.
