Economic growth in Latin America has expanded for nearly a decade, but things are changing. Over the next year, national elections will be held in Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, and other countries, against a backdrop of slowing economic growth and an increasing number of social protests.

The 7th Annual CSO Roundtable Summit, Business in the Americas, will examine the impact of these international developments on the risk-management priorities of global businesses. The summit will also cover executive leadership, the use of intelligence in managing risk, and due-diligence issues in Latin America.

Join your peers from around the world for great conversations and networking in Miami. It’s an event you can’t afford to miss.
