June 30, 2022

About the event

We invite you to take part in the International Forum “CORPORATE GOVERNANCE IN THE DIGITAL WORLD”, which will be held on June 30, 2022 in the ONLINE format.

Forum audience: Shareholders and Top Managers, Independent Directors and Members of the Board of Directors, Directors of Corporate Governance and Corporate Secretaries, Corporate Lawyers and Law Firms practicing in corporate law, as well as international experts and consultants in the field of corporate governance.

Relevance: The COVID-19 pandemic has pushed Companies across all industries to an unprecedented shift to teleworking and digitalization. Many companies have managed to adapt to this and maintain efficiency in their day-to-day operations, but they have become much more vulnerable to cyberattacks that can lead to leakage of classified information and business disruption. In the future, the digital transformation of all spheres of the economy will only deepen, and one must understand that approaches to corporate governance will also change.

It is also obvious that Boards of Directors must delve into new digital technologies and play the role of intellectual centers in order to quickly implement all modern innovations and use them to interact with other participants in corporate governance, as well as bear collective responsibility on a variety of issues of digital transformation in the company!

Key topics for discussion this year:

  • Digital economy and new cybersecurity risks. Corporate information security management.
  • How to identify gaps in understanding cyber resilience: key questions for the board of directors.
  • Corporate law and corporate governance: a new reality.
  • Tasks and role of the Boards of Directors (BoD) in the context of digital business transformation.
  • Digitalization of business processes and how does this apply to corporate governance?
  • Who on the Board of Directors should be responsible for digitalization?
  • Development of digital competencies. Do council members need digital competencies?
  • Is CDO / CDTO capable of replacing the digital gaps in Board members?
  • Use of digital tools in the work of the Board of Directors.
  • Implementation of digital technologies in the corporate governance system of the company: where to start?
  • Complexes of digital corporate governance: buy ready-made or create your own? Pros and cons of both options.
  • Components and options of the electronic corporate governance system: councils, committees, compliance, monitoring and control functions, archiving, etc.
  • Tools you can’t do without: data protection, verification keys, access levels, communication with other company systems.
