Cover of the book Tailings Dam Management for the Twenty-First Century by Dr. F. Oboni and C. Oboni
What Mining Companies Need to Know and Do to Thrive in Our Complex World

Abstract:
The talk presents a comprehensive approach to address the need to improve the design of tailings dams, their management and the regulation of tailings management facilities to reduce, and eventually eliminate, the risk of such facilities failing (book available on springer’s website). The scope of the challenge is well documented in the report by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and GRID Arendal entitled “Mine Tailings Storage: Safety Is No Accident,” which was released in October 2017 and identifies several areas where further improvements are required. In this context, the application of cutting-edge risk-assessment methodologies and risk-management practices can contribute to a significant reduction and eventual elimination of dam failures through Risk Informed Decision Making. The discussion focuses on identifying and describing the risk-assessment approaches and risk-management practices to be implemented in order to develop a way forward to achieve socially acceptable levels of tailings dams’ risks.

Cyber and Operational Risk Management

Cybersecurity ranks as the #1 priority for financial institutions today. That is mainly because cyberthreats affect all functions within the organization and there is an increasing number of actors.

Also, Operational and compliance risks have become complex and entwined. Indeed the potential for failed processes that govern control breakdowns had grown tremendously.

Thus a holistic governance approach bringing the entire risk portfolio of an organization together, is nowadays OpRisk leaders preferred way.

It is therefore paramount to mitigate risks with an eye to the big picture.

Meanwhile many risk leaders feel overwhelmed by the scale and breadth of potential threats.

Infonex’s Operational Risk event, now in its 14th year. The conference will provide strategies for mitigating risk in the current regulatory environment.

Riskope’s presentation Fostering Sustainability and Value Through Convergent Risk Assessments covers indeed many angles within the conference’s scope.
