Certified Compliance Risk Officer

Certified Compliance Risk Officer – CCRO™

 

Catastrophic events such as economic crises, major corporate failures and the rise of new environmental risks and uncertainties have led governments worldwide to focus more and more on mechanisms to improve corporate governance and risk management in the business world leading to strong policy and regulatory developments over the past 15 years. Those increasing regulatory requirements have become a RISK in itself affecting corporate performance due to the ever rising number of complex and often-conflicting regulations that organizations have to comply with around the world. Such environments do not provide clear visibility into the organisations’ risk and compliance profile, create risks, deteriorate performance, and escalate the cost of (non-)compliance.

Hence, the essential purpose of the CCRO™ Program is to equip Risk & Compliance professionals with the knowledge, methodologies and tools to create a GRC(Governance, Risk & Compliance) strategy that integrate effective control systems with corporate culture to ensure business ethic, proper governance and effective compliance.

Objectives of Program

The aim of the program is not just for participants to acquire new knowledge, but also to develop the capabilities to apply that knowledge effectively to resolve their organization risk management challenge. Consequently, CCRO™ graduates will:

  • Objective 1: Understand the Compliance Risk: Understand the reasons and implications of regulatory requirements and evaluate the extent of your organization’s exposure to compliance risks
  • Objective 2: Ethics: Define corporate governance for your organization and develop a clearly ethical basis to your business operation and decisions
  • Objective 3: Strategic Compliance Risk Management: Develop an effective compliance system that support the strategy of the organization by aligning stakeholders’ needs & value
  • Objective 4: Organization: Design a risk compliance program suitably structured to support good corporate governance and risk management
  • Objective 5: Reporting: Develop reporting systems structured to provide transparency and accountability within applicable regulatory frameworks

 

Modular Structure for Busy Professionals

To allow participants to integrate our program into their work schedule, the CCRO™ Program is conducted several times each year. Each program is completed within 2 months. Busy professionals who are not based in Singapore only need to make 2 trips to Singapore. Please check out the different intakes and how the 4 days are scheduled by referring to the “Calendar & Fees” tab.
