EuSpRIG offers Risk Managers the world’s only independent, authoritative & comprehensive web based information describing the current state of the art in Spreadsheet Risk Management.

Research has repeatedly shown that an alarming proportion of corporate spreadsheet models are not tested to the extent necessary to support Directors' fiduciary, reporting and compliance obligations. Uncontrolled and untested spreadsheet models therefore pose significant business risks. These risks include:

Lost revenue & profits
Mispricing and poor decision making due to prevalent but undetected errors
Fraud due to malicious tampering
Difficulties in demonstrating fiduciary and regulatory compliance
These risks are ignored due to a widespread failure to inventory (keep records of), test, document, backup, archive and control the legions of spreadsheets that support critical corporate infrastructure.

To counter these risks and address the pertinent management issues, the European Spreadsheet Risks Interest Group (EuSpRIG) will be holding their 9th annual conference at the University of Greenwich, London UK on July 10-11 2008.

This conference will provide attendees with an opportunity to share experiences with a broad range of researchers, practitioners and recognised leaders in the field of spreadsheet research.
