Past IOSCO Training Programs (2022)
6th IOSCO/PIFS – Harvard Law School Global Certificate Program for Regulators of Securities Markets – Phase I, Virtual, 6-10 June 2022
IOSCO and the Program on International Financial Systems at Harvard Law School (PIFS-HLS) jointly developed this two-phase program to offer IOSCO members an executive education program that is exclusively tailored for regulators of securities markets. Attendees have up to three years to complete both phases of the Global Certificate Program. Successful attendees will be awarded a joint certificate of participation issued by IOSCO and PIFS-Harvard Law School. Also, IOSCO members may attend any part of the program on a non-certificate basis. This year marks the 6th edition of the program which was inaugurated in 2016.
Phase I, hosted by IOSCO, consists of the following components: online learning materials and in-person modules on regulation and compliance. Under normal circumstances, the in-person modules will be conducted at IOSCO´s premises in Madrid (Spain) and will cover the fundamentals and intricacies of securities regulation and compliance. This year, Phase I will be delivered in a virtual format and will consist of virtual live sessions to be held on 6-10 June 2022, as well as pre-recorded on-demand presentations and other online content to be studied in advance. These sessions will be delivered primarily by current or former securities regulators.
Phase II, hosted by PIFS-HLS, consists of a one week-long in-person module that will be conducted on campus at the Harvard Law School in Cambridge (Massachusetts, US) from 12-16 December 2022. (Note: depending on the circumstances, Phase II may be delivered in a virtual format.) This one week-long session will examine current and future regulatory challenges and emerging issues and will be delivered by leading academics, securities regulators and public policy makers.
While any IOSCO member employee may attend the program, it is specifically designed for regulatory staff with strong leadership potential and approximately five to seven years of regulatory experience.

IOSCO AMCC Webinar on “Securities and Derivatives Clearing and the role of CCPs”
The IOSCO Affiliate Members Consultative Committee (AMCC) is organizing a webinar titled "Securities and Derivatives Clearing and the role of CCPs" on 19 May 2022 (13.00 to 14.30 CEST). The webinar is open to all IOSCO members free of charge. Please save the date for this event in your calendars.
This event is sequel to the AMCC webinar on “Securities and Derivatives Clearing and the role of CCPs" which was held in November 2021. Given the interest generated by that webinar and the broad nature of the subject, the AMCC decided to organize a second part to the webinar to examine areas which were not covered in the first part. This event is in continuation of the AMCC Learning Series, which contributes to the capacity building projects of IOSCO.
In terms of content, the webinar will feature presentations on margining in the context of credit risk management, non-default losses (NDLs) in the context of non-credit risks as well as resolution. In addition, the webinar will provide a high-level recap of PFMIs, highlighting its purpose and scope as well as a discussion to accentuate the fundamental distinction between clearing and settlement. These topics will be discussed by key subject matter specialists and promises to be a vital learning opportunity for staff of IOSCO member organizations.
More information about this event, including registrations details, agenda and speakers will be provided in due course.
For enquiries, please contact the AMCC Team at the IOSCO Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org.

IOSCO AMCC Webinar on “Cybersecurity under the Pandemic and beyond”
When: 20 April 2022 – 13.00 to 15:00 CEST – Platform: Bluejeans Events – open to all IOSCO members free of charge
The IOSCO Affiliate Members Consultative Committee (AMCC) is organizing a webinar titled "Cybersecurity under the Pandemic and Beyond".
This is in continuation of the AMCC Learning Series which are part of the AMCC’s contribution to the capacity building projects of IOSCO
The AMCC chose to begin its learning series this year with cybersecurity considering how critical it is to the activities of regulators and industry players in the securities market. Effective cyber-security has become increasingly vital for governments, and public and private entities over the past decade. Recently, cyber-attacks experienced an uptick during the pandemic as many financial sector participants began working from home. Now more than ever, governments, regulators, regulated entities, and other firms need to strengthen their capacity to deal with ever evolving cyber-threats. The IOSCO AMCC has brought together three cyber-security specialists to discuss what entities need to have in place, what resources they can count on to build cyber-security capacity, and how the public and private sector can work together to address cyber-threats.
The agenda is available here.
