Evolving Regulation of Information in Canada
Information systems can unexpectedly evolve or begin to develop bias. As a CIO and organization, continuous vigilance is required while managing information systems to ensure that data sets are not inadvertently bringing a bias into the system. Watch Stephen's module for insight on the logistics of the regulation of information in Canada and the risk of inherent bias that arises within the information system itself.
Evolving Reporting Requirements

While ESG factors are becoming central to many investing and lending activities, there has been a lack of adoption of consistent standards and reporting. Watch Denise's module for a look into what challenges companies will face as they navigate the actively evolving ESG reporting requirements and decide which frameworks and standards to adopt and utilize.
