Seminar Overview     

SACCOs and Micro Finance Institutions are struggling with establishing proven mechanism to automate manual controls and processes to reduce the amount of time spent on error correction and focus on valuable analysis instead. Then there is the demand to move from frequent oversight to continuous oversight to avoid potential regulatory non-compliance. The CHALLENGE is how to reduce ERP system or business process limitations and deficiencies and develop a robust platform to continuously assess risk for audit planning and scoping purposes. Overally, it is pertinent to quickly implement an end-to-end tool capable of root cause analysis for errors, policy violations, fraud, and misconduct. You need to consider the direction your business is heading because your ICT choices will affect the journey: smooth or bumpy. When you have clarity, it’s easier to understand your options and make the right decisions to get the best results.

The result is a more responsive ICT department that can show leadership in exploiting technology for its value to the business. In turn, this builds business confidence in the ICT department’s capabilities.

  1. Information Security Governance
