Why This Webinar
Most organizations still use and rely on highly complex and specialized spreadsheets to support critical business processes. However, these spreadsheets inherently carry risk, and business professionals struggle to identify, manage, and reduce the risk embedded in these spreadsheets due to manual processes and homegrown solutions.
With today’s increased pace of business, and an uncertain, changing and complex global regulatory environment, risk executives are more challenged than ever to identify, manage and reduce the spreadsheet risk exposure in their business. The brand and personal costs of failure are higher than ever before.
How can businesses avoid the pitfalls of maintaining outdated processes, operations and approaches, and move towards a more modern and resilient spreadsheet risk management strategy?
