COMPLIANCE AND ETHICS CONFERENCE: Compliance, Technologies and Global Risks

Consortium of organisers: European Institute of Compliance and Ethics, IEDC-Bled School of Management and SI.RISK, are a perfect match for making this event relevant in delivering answers to common challenges and being sharp in opening important questions. Through a broad network of partner organisations, representing professional and business communities, this conference is being recommended to thousands of professionals and managers in Europe.

Attendance of the 5th annual conference and responses from participants, lecturers and partners again confirm that this conference is becoming a central and indispensable professional event in our field of profession for the nearby region. Huge thanks to all of you for being part of this excellent international networking, for helping create impressions and fostering new knowledge. This importantly contributes to strengthening the professionalization of business compliance and risk management in our region and contributes to improvement of the business environment!
Conference topics and discussions this year were evolving around the core theme on ‘Compliance, Technologies and Global Risks’. Over the course of two days, we discussed how digital technologies and artificial intelligence affect business compliance and ethics and risk management, and vice versa: how ethical principles affect the development and use of new technologies.
We have had 16 speakers from 6 European countries and over 100 participants from Slovenia and the nearby region attending. These included experts and leaders in the areas of business compliance and ethics, risk management, legal affairs, internal audits, as well as members of top management, advisers, attorneys and regulators. We are grateful for your confidence and the energy that you have put into attending the conference and actively participating. We will continue to strive to keep bringing forward current and emerging topics, following global trends and recognizing their impact on our profession and the overall business.
