LIEFERANTENMANAGEMENT – WENN DER SCHWANZ NICHT MIT DEM HUND WEDELN SOLL

Lieferantenmangement-06-06-2024-2 Lieferantenmangement-06-06-2024-2

60. Fachveranstaltung vom 6. Juni 2024 in Bern

Date: 06. Juni 2024 
Time: 15.30 Uhr - 19.00 Uhr
Place: Kulinarium, Freiburgstrasse 453, Bern

Der Cyberangriff auf die Firmen Xplain oder Concevis und die drastischen Auswirkungen auf ihre Kunden haben die Problematik schlagartig zurück ins Bewusstsein der Öffentlichkeit gebracht. Neu ist sie hingegen nicht, die Abhängigkeit von externen Lieferanten. Berufsverbände, Regulatoren, Juristen und Gerichte beschäftigen sich schon seit Jahrzehnten damit, wie man Schlüssel-Lieferanten, von denen man oft massiv abhängig ist und die einem fachlich oft haushoch überlegen sind, dennoch überwachen und steuern kann – aktiv managen statt ausgeliefert sein, heisst die Zauberformel, integriertes Risikomanagement statt Silodenken.

These questions will be explored: 
Welche Vorgaben kann und sollte eine Firma einem Lieferanten machen, von dem sie stark abhängig ist oder in dessen Abhängigkeit sie sich begibt? Wie kann sie überwachen, ob diese Vorgaben eingehalten werden? Wie kann man Lieferanten in das Risikomanagement einbeziehen? Was kann man von einem Lieferanten erwarten, was nicht? An dieser Veranstaltung wollen wir gemeinsam Lehren aus Praxisbeispielen ziehen.

ECIIA CONFERENCE 2024 

EICAA_SolveThePuzzle_pic EICAA_SolveThePuzzle_pic

Welcome to the ECIIA – Solve The Puzzle Conference!

Date: 26-27 SEPTEMBER

Place: INTERCONTINENTAL BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

Speaker:
Anthony J. Pugliese, USA, President and CEO The Institute of Internal Auditors, HQ
Radován Jelasity, Hungary, Chairman and CEO of ERSTE BANK, Hungary
Ramsés Gallego, Spain, International Chief Technology Officer for Opentext Cybersecurity

The connection between puzzle solving and the internal auditor profession lies in the intricate nature of auditing tasks. Much like solving a puzzle, auditors piece together information by navigating through complexities. Both require analytical thinking, attention to detail, and the ability to see the bigger picture by connecting various elements.

In our upcoming conference the puzzle-solving mindset becomes a practical tool to embrace the opportunity of engaging with industry leaders, share best practices, and stay at the forefront of internal audit advancements at the 2024 ECIIA Conference — your gateway to shaping the future of audit.

Join us in engaging sessions, productive discussions, and memorable evenings enjoying Hungarian cuisine and culture. This conference will energize you to return home with fresh perspectives and solutions to the major challenges in your role.
