Protiviti South-East Asia Updates (April 2018)

As you know, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be enforceable as law from 25 May 2018. On 12 April, Protiviti Singapore will host a seminar jointly with Microsoft and Straits Interactive on GDPR Readiness. Expert speakers on the topic will cover key aspects of GDPR compliance, including managing IT and operating systems, enterprise risk, as well as regulatory and reporting processes, to help our clients get ready for this regulation.

Don’t miss this opportunity to get your questions answered and learn what immediate steps need to be taken in order to be prepared by 25 May. Visit our GDPR readiness event page for more details on the event and to register.

Also in April, we warmly welcome Carol Beaumier, Senior Managing Director in Protiviti U.S.’ Risk & Compliance practice, APAC Financial Services practice lead, and a former regulator with the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency at the U.S. Treasury Department, to Singapore. She will share insights from her work with firms around the world and her thoughts on the outlook for financial services in Asia at a breakfast event for our Financial Services Industry clients.

The COSO Internal Control Certificate Programme is back in Singapore and will run for 2.5 days from 7 to 9 May 2018. For more information, click here.
