The EGRC Summit is the nation’s leading risk and compliance thought leadership conference. What makes the EGRC Summit unique is its focus on bringing together all key stakeholders – regulators, board members, senior management, risk and compliance professionals and more – to discuss emerging risks and risk management best practices. “The EGRC Summit is a unique, innovative, cutting-edge, forward-looking, industry-leading educational conference that is a must-attend,” said Sai Huda, Chairman of the EGRC Summit and vice president and general manager, EGRC Solutions, FIS. “Rather than simple lectures, each session is presented in a highly engaging, multi-media, TV talk-show format with electronic polling and other interactivity so the learning is impactful and effective. "Also, each session is presented by leading experts, including the keynote speakers, who have previously included such distinguished individuals as Senator Chris Dodd, co-author of the Dodd-Frank Act, former FDIC Chair Sheila Bair and more.” Richard Clarke – former Cybersecurity Czar and National Coordinator for Security, Infrastructure Protection, and Counter-terrorism for the United States – will serve as the keynote speaker at the 2014 EGRC Summit. A best-selling author and leading consultant to industries and governments on cybersecurity and counterterrorism, Clarke will present insight from his more than 30 years of experience in national security and intelligence. Other expert speakers will include senior officials from multiple regulatory agencies, including the Federal Reserve, FDIC, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, along with other industry experts covering Dodd-Frank Act provisions, Cybersecurity, AML, UDAAP, Fair Lending and CFPB regulations that become effective in 2014.
