Geopolitics & International Risk

09.10 From Elections To Conflict To Sanctions: Increase Your Agility To Adapt & Navigate Through Turbulent Times By Preparing For Changing Risks, Ethical Challenges & The Regulatory Impact Of Operating A Global Pharmaceutical Business In A Divided World

  • Planning for operational continuity and ongoing compliance in the face of emerging risks and new regulations in a fast-moving world – how can you craft agile frameworks which allow you to anticipate, react and respond?
  • Collaborate with operations to ensure they are aligned with evolving regulations and the international conduct – all while steadfastly upholding ethical standards and prioritising patient needs
  • From elections to conflict to sanctions, keep an eye on the geopolitical landscape and understanding exactly what different outcomes could mean for your function
  • Remain vigilant in staying updated on regulatory frameworks and ethical conduct throughout the supply chain concerning human rights, corruption, fraud, potential sanctions breaches and anti-terrorism

AI & Automation- Panel & Q&A

09.30 Design Proactive Regulatory Frameworks, Policies & Codes Of Conduct Around AI To Enable Effective AI Adoption Across All Functions & Protect The Business From Risks

  • The challenge we face: creating and enforcing coherent, ethical and compliant internal AI policies for different applications throughout the business while managing different risk appetites
  • Harness AI’s potential to streamline operations, automate tasks and optimise internal audits to enhance compliance functions’ efficiency
  • We all know the risks of AI – what is the level of resourcing required to minimise threats, secure vulnerabilities and ensure watertight compliance?
  • Combat the ambiguity and uncertainty of AI’s evolution over time with consistent checks and validation to maintain control and ensure it remains fit for intended use
  • Influence internal players to create responsible AI behaviours: governance processes, training and education to ensure awareness of blind spots, bias, security and patient safety
  • As digital and AI explode across the business world, the GRC responsibility and complexity increases, how is the EU AI Act playing out in day-to-day several months down the line and what do we anticipate the next regulatory updates will focus on?
