When September 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - September 25, 2019 4:30 pm

Technology has become the backbone of any business almost in all industries. In the past, Information technology became vital to the running of any business. Now, technology has become the main disruptor of many industries, with more industries in the pipeline for disruption. With the fast evolution of E-commerce, 3D printing, Fintech, in addition to social media and millions of mobile applications, the risks and opportunities continue to grow every day.

On the risks side, legislators and regulators have as well develop exhaustive laws to protect personal data and to ensure the privacy of consumers’ information. These laws hold businesses responsible for maintaining and protecting personal data, and any loss of such information is subject to heavy penalties, in addition to the consequences of the cybercrime which could cripple the business with substantial financial losses. Having an effective IT governance framework in place will not only help you to safeguard your company against data breaches and cybercrimes; but also, crucial for the success of IT projects and the business’ strategic plans. Your IT governance framework can open doors for your business to thrive and to grow in this fast-rising digital world.

Many companies are lagging behind in the area of opportunities generated by the rapidly advancing technology. Boards and senior executives need to be driving technology to enhance their companies’ competitive edge, otherwise, they will be disrupted.

  • The certified Board Secretaries Workshop provided by Hawkamah and Dubai Financial Market is an essential course for learning corporate governance, scope and responsibilities of the board secretary and understanding the governance and disclosure requirements of the Dubai Financial Market and the Securities and Commodities Authority.
