Companies everywhere are under constant pressure to ensure they continue operating and growing the business as well as guaranteeing to their staff and customers that it’s done safely and securely. Many struggle to manage and communicate with their critical business stakeholders to ensure they comply and see the value of an effective IT compliance program.

Tackling the ever-increasing number of intersecting IT and privacy compliance requirements individually leads to confusion, with lots of overlapping and duplicate controls to embed, test and manage. In rolling the program out to the organisation, internal stakeholders often end up frustrated and see compliance as a blocker to doing business quickly and efficiently.

Join Flutter Entertainment and SureCloud, alongside other senior IT and compliance leaders and decision-makers during this interactive 90-minute virtual boardroom which will equip you with insights and enable you to unite with your senior peers to discuss the IT compliance challenges and how you can put an effective IT compliance program in place that achieves buy-in from key stakeholders.
