FIRST - Improving Security Together

Corporate Executive Programme

back to the Conference

Corporate Executive Programme

Companies face the continued pressure of delivering increasing quarterly and yearly profits for their shareholders. Against this backdrop, organisations must ensure global compliance, good corporate governance and competitive innovation. To this list of challenges we must add that of managing risk while driving down cost and increasing operational efficiency. If your agenda incorporates all or a part of these challenges, then the Corporate Executive Programme (CEP) on the 30th June and 1st July 2005 is a must have item in your diary.

Shangri-la hotel

The historical and world famous Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore will provide a private and exclusive atmosphere in which Global and Asia Pacific corporate executives can discuss boardroom issues. This programme is exclusively for attendees at this level of an organisation, for example, CIOs, CISOs, CFOs, CMOs, CEOs, Company Secretaries, Group Heads, and Executive Directors. The aim is to provide not only experts within various disciplines, but more importantly to promote interactive groupings and networking capabilities. It is for this reason, that attendees will be housed in the Valley Wing. The Valley Wing is famous for accommodating Heads of State and Dignitaries and offers the best of luxury and opulence.

17th Annual FIRST Conference

The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) is pleased to be hosting this programme alongside its annual conference. FIRST already brings together its over 180 global teams annually and attendees from large blue chip companies, Small and Medium Enterprise, government, academia, independent consultants and industry professionals. The conference is being sited in Asia-Pacific this year, as a testimony to the rapid growth of membership in this region. It is for this reason that the occasion is also being supported at governmental levels.

The programme benefits

The Corporate Executive Programme highlights speakers such as Dr. Sally Leivesley world-renowned Risk and Disaster expert. Dr Leivesley currently works with companies globally to address the effect of disasters and risk management in a competitive business environment. Bill Cook, global Compliance and Governance expert will work with attendees in understanding global and legal compliance issues. Speakers from other large corporations will share their experiences and highlight issues for the interactive groupings. The Special “Ask the Analysts” session has been carefully designed to have attendees understand areas such as technological risks, the role of outsourcing, implementing innovation while managing costs and risks.

The programme without doubt provides an opportunity for executives to benchmark their own progress in tackling boardroom and corporate issues in general. Networking is a key component of the Programme, and the formal dinner in the Shangri-La’s Pavilion restaurant will be only one of the many carefully designed facilities to enable peer-to-peer dialogue and private discussions.
