GACO 2018 Symposium next week

Friday 20 April 2018

Experts from the UK will join industry leaders from the Channel Islands to debate the latest issues in governance, risk and compliance at the Guernsey Association of Compliance Officers 2018 Symposium next week.

Topics to be covered at the half-day GACO conference, which takes place at St James on Monday 23 April, include the latest developments in RegTech and customer due diligence (CDD), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), corporate governance standards and anti-money laundering processes.

Speakers at the event include Emma Martins, Guernsey's data protection commissioner and George Pearmain, lead policy adviser for financial crime at the States of Jersey. They will be joined by Andrew Bulley of Deloitte, Gillian Browning and Callum McVean from the Guernsey Financial Services Commission, Jonathan Bowdler of International Compliance Training, Jessica Rowland of Mourant Ozannes and Stephen Platt of KYC360.

Carey Olsen partner and GACO committee member Mark Dunster will moderate proceedings which include a panel discussion on digitising CDD processes.

"It will be a pleasure to act as moderator for what I'm sure will be some robust debate. With huge global regulatory events such as GDPR on the horizon, the compliance landscape is fraught with complexities and getting it wrong is just not an option," said Mr Dunster.

GACO chairman Charles Freeman said: "We have secured a great line-up of speakers and it promises to be a fantastic event. Through the individual speaker presentations at the start to the panel discussion at the end, our aim is to get to the very heart of the compliance matters currently facing businesses everywhere."

Registration for the event, which is open to members and non-members of GACO, will be open from 08:30, with the conference itself taking place from 09:00 – 12:30. Tickets are priced at £50.
