  • Managing and Communicating Risk in Challenging Times, a keynote from Dave Estlick, CISO of Chipotle, discussing critical initiatives during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as executive-level and board reporting strategies.
  • Improving Operational Efficiency Across a Third-Party Risk Program, an interactive discussion with TD Ameritrade’s Frank Roppelt, Boston Private Bank’s Casey Ryder, and Bayer AG’s Laurent Charmes, offering best practices for streamlining workflows throughout each stage of the vendor lifecycle.
  • Integrating Your TPRM Program Into The Procurement Process, a presentation from Julie Gaiaschi, CEO of the Third Party Risk Association, about the importance of partnering with the procurement department to achieve program objectives.
  • Developing a Mature TPRM Program, a discussion about creating and optimizing a TPRM program with Nelnet’s Kaci Johnson.
