BOSTON, October 29, 2015 – MEGA International will host a webinar on November 18 at 1 pm EST featuring Michael Rasmussen, a recognized expert on governance, risk and compliance issues. He will speak about how to reduce the risks associated with models that are typically used to develop new products or company processes.
“Enterprises develop intricate models for complex planning, to analyze, predict, and represent performance and outcomes that impact operations and business strategy,” according to Rasmussen. “The expanding use of models reflects the extent to which they can improve business decisions. However, models come with risks when internal errors or misuse occurs.”
The webinar will help organizations understand:
- How models are used and the associated risks
- The value of modeling your models
- Growing compliance requirements to address model risk
- How organizations can govern models and mitigate risk
