THE INSTITUTE OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS OF KENYA
(Established under the Accountant Act, Laws of Kenya)
Leveraging on Technology to Manage Risks During Disruptions Webinar
Date: 2nd June 2022
Time: 04.00pm – 06.00pm
COVID-19 lockdowns, workforce restrictions, and limited access to inputs (60 percent of firms reported problems obtaining inputs) reduced firm productivity and supply capacity. At the same time, demand slumped or shifted toward new products and services. These shocks were compounded by unprecedented uncertainty about the virus, the extent and duration of public policy responses, and future outlooks. These channels affected firms and sectors differently and in a manner that required businesses to adopt novel solutions or risk going out of business by leveraging on technology to manage risk during such disruptions. Internet access, smartphones, connected devices, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, and other innovations will likewise transform the way we measure and monitor risks and impacts and provide more comprehensive, accurate, and timely risk analysis.
Digital technologies are transforming our economies and creating opportunities to build resilience and improve efficient and effective delivery of outcomes across almost every policy area.
The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic vividly illustrates the enormous hardships that can result from a crisis and underscores the need to prepare for them. The current crisis clearly highlights the importance of embracing new technologies and the need for governments to undertake advance risk planning by rethinking stakeholder engagement and service delivery. Many have embraced new online distribution and communication processes—out of necessity at first, and now because of the efficiencies achieved. To learn on how to leverage on technology to manage risk during disruptions, the Institute has organized for a two-hour webinar to discuss the following topical areas;
- Emerging Technologies and Innovation
- The impact of digital transformation on data access, processing, and transmission
- Data processing and analytical technologies and innovations
- The Contribution of Emerging Technologies and Innovation to Risk and Impact Assessment
- Applications of Emerging Technologies to Risk Reduction and Preparedness
- Challenges to the effective implementation of some emerging technologies and innovations
