For Immediate Release
6 June 2017, New York, London & Singapore: Opus, the leading provider of innovative compliance and risk management solutions, announced today Mark DeLuca, its New York based Head of Global Sales, will be speaking at the 2nd Annual Vendor & Third Party Risk EMEA conference in London, 6-7 June.
The two-day conference brings together a diverse line-up of senior industry professionals to review and discuss key challenges of handling vendor and third party risks. This year’s event will provide a platform for the buy- and sell-sides to explore the challenges of managing third parties and to give their insights into risk management best practices, going beyond ‘just’ compliance. DeLuca will join over 20 senior professionals who will share their experiences and ideas for developing efficient risk practices and reviewing/improving best practices for effective management, oversight and compliance.
DeLuca commented: “This is a major conference in the Third Party Risk Management sector and I am looking forward to explaining the unique global perspective which Opus is able to bring to such an important topic. Good business practices now require much greater visibility into all risk and compliance elements, ideally in a single view. Third Party vendor management is under increasing scrutiny, particularly by regulators. Most of our clients are global, their risk is global and so our solutions have to be global. Financial institutions are facing increasing risks, especially in areas like information security. Only the intelligent use of specialized solutions will provide the levels of protection required to remain in business – it is that simple and that important.”
With more than two decades’ experience in enterprise software, including holding a senior management position in Accenture’s business process outsourcing, DeLuca has, over the years, established extensive contacts with senior compliance, data and technology executives across a wide range of organisations and verticals. His deep understanding of the challenges companies face in effectively addressing regulatory obligations helps Opus to support its clients in achieving their risk management goals, specifically related to Compliance, Reference Data and Third Party Management.
