The ICSA Jersey Conference 2016

About

The 2016 ICSA Jersey Conference took place on 20th April at the Royal Yacht Hotel. Thank you to all our guests, speakers and sponsors for their contribution in making this a successful enlightening event.

With the regulation of financial services stricter than it’s ever been and politicians threatening offshore jurisdictions in the ongoing debate over tax avoidance, the work of governance, risk and compliance professionals in the Channel Islands is under scrutiny like never before.

This year’s event reflected upon the value of governance, compliance and upon the important role GRC professionals have to play. Our speakers discussed the benefits of good governance to Jersey and its reputation internationally, and also examined issues such as anti-money laundering, board reports and cyber crime.

Robert Le Corre ACIS, Chair, ICSA Jersey Branch


Keynote Address
General Sir John McColl KCB, CBE, DSO, Lieutenant Governor of Jersey
10.00 What lies ahead
What challenges are in store for Jersey over the next few years – and what opportunities? We hear from the JFSC about its thoughts on the future, how it’s adapting its work to meet those challenges, and what businesses in Jersey need to be doing to prepare.
John Everett, Deputy Director General, Jersey Financial Services Commission
10.30 The home of good governance
Jersey plays a key role internationally as a reputable financial centre, and at the heart of that lie good governance and compliance. In this session, we reflect upon that, and upon the contribution made by GRC professionals in upholding Jersey’s good name.
Richard Corrigan, Deputy Chief Executive, Jersey Finance
10.45 Tea/coffee
11.15 Changing the conversation on AML
Do we need to change the way we talk about money laundering? Do businesses really “get” it, or does more need to be done for them to understand it as more than just a compliance obligation, as something that has real-world consequences? And if the answer is “yes”, what more can be done?
William Grace, Partner, Carey Olsen
11.45 Board reports: clear and understandable?
No board of directors can expect to make sound decisions if they haven’t been equipped with good information – and yet, quality board papers remain surprisingly rare. We look at some of the common issues that can affect the flow of information to a board and hamper its ability to deliver good governance.
Nasri EL-Sayegh, Associate, Board Intelligence
12.15 Cyber crime: taking stock
The threat from cyber crime continues to dominate press headlines. In this session, we look at the state of the cyber crime “market” in 2016 and ask, where are the biggest threats coming from? We reflect upon the darker side of social networking and examine how even familiar threats such as rogue e-mail attachments are still potent.
Matthew Parker, Head of Information Security, Mourant Ozannes
12.45 Closing address: ICSA 125
125 years on from when the Institute was first formed, we look at how ICSA continues to lead the way on promoting and developing best practice in governance. We take this opportunity to look at how ICSA is developing next generation of GRC professionals to be fit for the future.
Simon Osborne FCIS, Chief Executive, ICSA
13.00 Closing words - Networking and lunch
