Tackling Risk in an Evolving Environment

Level: Basic

This session provides an insider view into a very ‘hot topic’ in Canada, the cannabis sector. The cannabis sector currently operates in an environment than many risk management and internal audit professionals would consider a nightmare given its constant evolution, ever-changing regulations, and limited consumer forecasting to help drive effective business strategy, risk management and internal control. Using examples from the cannabis sector, this session will provide relevant insight that can be applied to any industry on how to take a more forward-looking and value-driven approach to risk management, consulting and assurance support and advice to both management and oversight functions
