Managing governance in practice
To be confirmed
The Superannuation Governance Masterclass is a series of intensive, face to face classroom masterclasses designed to help the leaders of the superannuation industry achieve governance best practice.
In each Masterclass, a team of industry experts will dissect a key area relating to superannuation governance and use case scenarios and real-life examples to demonstrate how the governance framework is best put into practice.
There is a limit of 20 participants for each Masterclass to allow for robust discussion, and to ensure that participants have ample opportunity to ask presenters questions.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance which can be offered to APRA as proof of continuing professional development.
CPS 234 Tripartite Reviews Masterclass
Face to face workshop: Sydney Wednesday 9 November 2022 9am-12pm | Melbourne Thursday 10 November 2022 1pm-4pm
Open to attendees from superannuation funds only.
APRA recently issued notices to 30 superannuation funds advising them to conduct a CPS 234 tripartite review. These reviews require trustees to engage third party independent auditors to undertake a thorough CPS 234 compliance audit, with the results reported directly to APRA, and non-compliance resulting in enforcement action.
The next tranche of letters to superannuation entities will be communicated later this year. It is therefore imperative that all funds consider their CPS 234 compliance now. Are you ready?
Please note that this unique three-hour face to face workshop is limited to representatives of RSE licensees only, and comprises two essential sessions:
- A one-hour opportunity to hear directly from APRA's John Singh, Head of Operational Resilience Transformation, Operational Resilience, and Raymond Tang, Technology Resilience Specialist, who has been leading APRA’s CPS 234 Tripartite review stream of work, on APRA’s Cyber Strategy, the scope and high-level process of the CPS 234 Tripartite reviews, high-level insights from the first tranche of reviews, common weaknesses observed, data collection and ongoing supervision work.
- A two-hour practical deep dive workshop from representatives and leaders from the PwC Cybersecurity and Digital Trust team on areas to look out, how to prepare, required board governance and oversight and essential insights on what to action now.
At the conclusion of this critical face to face workshop, you will clearly understand the requirements and scope of the CPS 234 tripartite reviews, what CPS 234 compliance looks like, and how to prepare. It will also be a great chance to network with your peers…in person!
