Diligent Launches AI Ethics & Board Oversight Certification for Corporate Directors and Executives

Diligent, a leading GRC SaaS company, today announced its AI Ethics & Board Oversight Certification corporate directors and executives. The programme will help leaders navigate the context and basics of artificial intelligence (AI), associated opportunities and risks, ethics and compliance frameworks and regulatory considerations.

“The promise and impact of AI is top of mind in the boardroom,” said Dottie Schindlinger, Executive Director of Diligent Institute. “Directors see the benefit of using AI to enhance efficiencies and gain insights, but risks can arise without the right knowledge and tools. This certification will help leaders identify governance models to consider the ethical and compliance implications of AI, in the context of today’s regulatory framework.”

The self-paced e-learning curriculum, developed in partnership with Volkov Law, includes four courses: Overview of Ethics & Compliance; Overview of Artificial Intelligence; Aligning AI with Ethics & Compliance and AI Governance & Oversight. The programme features top experts across AI, ethics, compliance, and regulatory and legal industries, including renowned speakers:

·        Meghan S Anzelc, Chief Data & Analytics Officer at Three Arc Advisory

·        Richard Barber, C-Suite Leader, Board Director and AI Governance Consultant

·        Andrea Bonime-Blanc, CEO & Founder, GEC Risk Advisory

·        Alexander Cotoia, Regulatory Compliance Manager, The Volkov Law Group

·        Dan Hendrycks, Executive Director, Center for AI Safety

·        Josh Klein, CEO, Indigometrics

·        Dominique Shelton Leipzig, Partner, Cybersecurity & Data Privacy; Leader, Global Data Innovation, Mayer Brown

·        Dr. Jodie Lobana, Managing Director, Lobana Consulting Group

·        Myrna Soto, CEO & Founder, Apogee Executive Advisors

·        Michael Volkov, CEO, The Volkov Law Group

“The Volkov Law Group is pleased to play a part in creating a certificate programme that brings the murky problem of AI and ethics into relief. This programme is a must for board members interested in the overlap of ethics and compliance with concerns over the use of AI, which has the potential to transform the way organisations function,” said Michael Volkov, CEO of Volkov Law. “Of course, the use of AI means that boards need to develop a coherent strategy for dealing with AI issues in the workplace. The goal of this training is to precipitate meaningful discussion among stakeholders about issues like bias, accountability, reliability, and access, among other things.”

Courses begin September 20th.
