Join the EaSI Technical Assistance Webinar on Risk Management in a Digital Era

The European Union is offering an EaSI Technical Assistance webinar on how microfinance institutions in Europe can recognise and mitigate emerging digital risks in their operations.

The webinar will be organised on 10 December, and it will focus on tackling issues related to recognising and classifying digital risks, the evolving role of the risk management function, and the profile of risk owners.

This second session from the digitalisation webinar series was conceptualised as a response to digital finance trends, which are quickly changing the nature of financial service provision.
