Diligent unveils AI Ethics & Board Oversight certification


Diligent, a GRC SaaS enterprise, has recently raised the bar in corporate leadership training by launching an AI Ethics & Board Oversight Certification.

The certification offers a unique opportunity for corporate directors and executives to gain in-depth insights into the ever-evolving world of artificial intelligence.

The advent of artificial intelligence brings not just opportunities but challenges too. Recognising the urgency to equip leaders with the know-how to handle AI’s multifaceted implications, Diligent has launched this certification. This initiative is set to play a pivotal role in enhancing the leaders’ grasp on AI, helping them understand its benefits, risks, and crucially, its ethical and regulatory dimensions.

Based in the heart of the FinTech industry, Diligent is known for its exceptional GRC SaaS solutions. Its reputation has been built upon innovation, integrity, and an unwavering commitment to ensuring that corporate leaders are armed with the best tools to oversee and navigate the rapidly changing technological landscape.

The certification program, developed collaboratively with Volkov Law, is an e-learning curriculum. It is structured into four distinct courses that cover an Overview of Ethics & Compliance, Artificial Intelligence, aligning AI with Ethics & Compliance, and AI Governance & Oversight. The training promises a rich experience, bringing together leading experts from various domains, including AI, ethics, compliance, legal, and regulatory sectors.

Courses kick off on September 20th, with a pricing set at $3,500 USD. An attractive early bird offer, slashing the fee by 50%, is currently up for grabs until September 30th, 2023. Noteworthy personalities from diverse sectors will be the star speakers, offering unparalleled insights into the world of AI and its ethical considerations.

An interesting side note from related reports reveals that 63% of the 500 largest U.S. public companies are now voluntarily reporting on Scope 3 Emissions – another testament to Diligent’s far-reaching influence in the corporate world.

Diligent Institute Executive Director Dottie Schindlinger remarked, “Directors see the benefit of using AI to enhance efficiencies and gain insights, but risks can arise without the right tools and oversight. This certification will outline the risks and opportunities associated with AI against the background of today’s regulatory landscape, and help leaders identify governance models to consider the ethical and compliance implications of AI.”

Similarly, Michael Volkov, CEO of Volkov Law, stated, “This program 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.”
