The Diploma Centre has introduced a new diploma course that will appeal to the legal profession, directors, financial services professionals and others: the Diploma in Compliance and Risk Management.
The legal landscape in Ireland has changed significantly in terms of financial services law and regulation. With an increase in Irish and European legislation creating awareness across all organisations in relation to their legal risks and compliance and acknowledgment of the pressing need for diligent risk management, this diploma aims to provide comprehensive knowledge of the area of compliance and an introduction to risk management.
The course begins with an introduction to regulation from both an Irish and European perspective and provides an understanding of the role of compliance within an organisation, before discussing the effect of the relevant regulation and the role of the various regulatory bodies on the operation of the compliance function within an organisation.
It includes in-depth coverage of anti-money laundering, risk management, compliance and governance and data protection. The course will also examine the impact of both civil and criminal liability for breach of regulatory obligation, corporate compliance together with defences and up-to-date case law in relation to risk, and compliance management failures.
This course is particularly suited to:
- solicitors, barristers and trainees, and other suitably qualified professionals with an interest in compliance and risk in the financial services industry or those wish to expand their knowledge in the area of compliance and risk with a view to moving into the area;
- solicitors and other suitable professionals who wish to familiarise themselves with compliance and risk;
- directors or relevant professionals who wish to familiarise themselves with compliance and risk issues in relation to the financial services industry and/or other organisations.
Lecturers will be drawn from solicitors, barristers, accountants, compliance officers, risk management officers and others with experience and expertise in the areas of compliance and risk.
