Webinar | A model to quantify Compliance, Legal and Contractual Risks - 8th December

15 November 2022

A model to quantify compliance, legal and contractual risks. Summary, The use of colors, 1-5 ranges, scores, and adjectives to assess risks not only induces wrong decision making but also is malpractice. Scientific research has proven that heat maps and qualitative assessments have mathematical flaws and biases preventing corporate defense and compliance with accountability principles. Learn how to use data-driven models based on Monte Carlo Simulations and decision trees to quantify the exposure to legal, contractual, fraud and compliance breaches.

Measuring risks in monetary terms allows us to assess insurance coverage, investment in controls, price levels, and more importantly, get top management attention to the compliance program. You will receive a model to adjust to your organization with practical tips to facilitate objective-centric discussions and differentiate consultancy service proposals.
