Enterprise Risk Management+
Due to the plethora of different regulatory requirements (e.g. RCSA, RRA, AML, SOX, TPRM, IT) financial services firms quite often find themselves struggling with risk assessments being performed multiple times, by multiple assurance groups on the same risks, resulting in a complex set of redundant, and sometimes overlapping, information. We work cross-functionally within our client organizations to establish a common risk management framework that harmonizes risk language across the firm (particularly Operational Risk Management, Compliance, IT, Finance, Audit), promoting clarity and transparency.
However, use of language can be highly political, especially within large organizations with different stakeholder agendas. Arriving at a consensus is critical given that the power to say “no” is widespread. Essentially, the business needs to move to a situation where risk is assessed once, and then those results are used to respond to the different risk assurance programs.
Regulatory Risk and Compliance+
As regulatory oversight evolves and expands, financial services firms need to position themselves to respond quickly and consistently to requirements. We work with industry leaders to interpret and respond to new regulations. We also establish systems and processes that ensure ongoing compliance, protecting our clients against financial and reputational risk.
Our Technology Risk services address the potential threats associated with purposeful or accidental harm to technology-driven assets and information. We work with our clients to construct systems and processes that are secure, flexible, and transparent, enabling them to guard against financial penalties and reputational damage.
We have a track record helping top financial services firms improve their Cybersecurity, Business Continuity and Technology Resilience. We assess current state, build assessment/scoring models, benchmark against best-in-class industry peers, assess controls effectiveness and maturity, create comprehensive/actionable plans and develop the resources to execute them.
Our holistic approach to Cybersecurity and Business Continuity Management addresses the operations, processes, tools, skills, and systems necessary for effectively responding to the ever-evolving threat landscape and manage adverse events as and when they arise, all while considering regulatory and shareholder requirements as well as broader organizational objectives.
