In countries like USA, Canada, United Kingdom and the EU countries, firms are being recognised for distinguishing themselves as pacesetters across the Governance, Risk, Compliance and Financial Crime Prevention sectors yearly. “It is therefore also important that the efforts of firms and professionals in these fields who are doing a lot of work by adhering to regulations and global standards should be recognised and rewarded in Nigeria at the first instance and Africa at large”.Speaking further, Amusa shed light on what makes this year’s edition different from the maiden edition;“This year’s edition will be different from the maiden edition on many levels. Firstly, we are including a Women in GRC & FinCrime Prevention Awards category. We are also introducing the GRC and FinCrime Summit. The aim is to engage leaders in the industry who will be discussing ways by which standards can be improved and excellence can be promoted. This year, we will also be simplifying and automating the Voting and Judging process”.The theme for the summit is titled: ‘Managing 3rd Party Ecosystem Risks & Data Sharing Amongst FIs to combat ML/TF’.•
