GRC Tuesdays: Join us for 2 Governance, Risk, and Compliance and Cybersecurity and Data Protection business focused events

For the first time, we’re co-locating our 2 Governance, Risk, and Compliance and Cybersecurity and Data Protection business focused events designed for the complete SAP GRC ecosystem: customers – of course, but also partners, and all stakeholders interested in these topics.

Over the course of two days, from May 23rd to May 24th, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from numerous global customers, partners and SAP experts themselves.

The two events will be exploring synergies between core risk, control, audit management and cyber security capabilities with shared keynotes and a combined exhibition allowing extended networking for our attendees and more.


What can you expect?


As for previous installations, we’ll start with a half-day of optional pre-conference workshop. And we’ll then move on to the 1.5 days of conference filled with customer case studies, keynotes and roadmap presentations, interactive breakout and, of course, an evening networking event.

Since we are very fortunate to have many partners sponsoring these events, there will also be an exhibition space in case you’d like to meet and discuss your requirements in more detail.

Of course, there will also be SAP experts on site available to help!

Plenary sessions & interactive breakouts


Joint sessions:

  • Stay Focused in Turbulent Times: What Risks to Look Out for in 2024 and Beyond? where speakers from SAP will share an overview of the most pressing threats for organizations in the short to medium term, but also the GRC trends are emerging on the market and an explanation on how this impacts SAP GRC & security plans for the future
  • Enterprise Risk at the Intersection of Control, Compliance, Audit and Cybersecurity: an interactive session where panelists will share their view on potential pitfalls and oversights to be aware of but also the key ingredients to achieve success when managing enterprise risk
  • Smarter Than You!: with AI transforming risk management, enabling organisations to make decisions based on vast amounts of data in seconds, this session will provide an overview of how AI should change the way we approach risk and what are the benefits and challenges that come with these changes.

From there, there will be 2 separate tracks, one for each of the conferences:


International Conference on Internal Controls, Compliance and Risk Management – Stay Focused in Turbulent Times


In this track, we will be coming together to learn how our speakers are using SAP solutions to streamline risk and controls management for large organizations, automate for continuous risk and control monitoring, reimagine compliance and gain insights into potential risks allowing them to proactively improve their business-critical processes.

We’ll have presentations and partner and customer case studies from Deloitte, Deutsche Börse, E.ON, Equinor, Merck, Riscomp, Vestas, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Zalando, ZF Friedrichshafen and SAP.

Where and when does it take place?


Both events will be co-located on the same days and same location:

Conveniently located only 10 minutes from Schiphol Airport or Amsterdam city centre, the Overamstel underground station is only 140 meters away from the hotel. What’s more, there is a gym, a sauna, and spectacular views from the 18th floor!


How can you get your hands on a ticket?


That’s the easy question!

Simply head to the registration page and choose if you’d like to join for the in-person conference only, the conference and the pre-conference workshop, or the workshops only.

If you are not able to join us onsite for the in-person conference, after the event you have the opportunity to access the recordings and presentation slides of the sessions we have permission to share. You’ll have access to these resources for up to a year on-demand. This will cover the main conference sessions only (not the pre-conference workshops or interactive sessions on the show floor) and the availability of recordings is subject to speaker permissions.

There are also special offers available that you may also want to explore such as:

4 for 3 Group Offer: which applies to a group of 4 people registering on the same day, under the same booking and with the same invoicing details (Note: workshops are excluded from this offer)

Student Discount: where the conference organizer, TAC Events, offers a 40% discount off of the in-person conference fee for students

Oh, and before I forget: as part of your ticket, you will have the opportunity to move freely between both agendas.
