Board Portals for Fund Boards – Key considerations
Forum Webinar
Thursday, June 20, 2019
02:00 PM - 03:00 PM
OVERVIEW -
In the modern boardroom, paper processes are too inefficient to keep up with today’s pace, and don’t address the security and communication needs of fund boards. Board portals have evolved into secure and integrated communication platforms for boards and leadership teams that facilitate decision-making and automate administrative aspects of corporate governance.

As liability and risks of using email are growing, organizations should consider all tech they use to share sensitive information, and evaluate how the system supports e-discovery and retention policies.

Join experts from Nasdaq as they discuss key trends driving corporate and fund boards to a secure portal, and the key considerations for boards.
This webinar will be broadcast live from 2:00 to 3:00 Eastern Time on Thursday, June 20, 2019.
