Leading with Vision – How Risk Technology Helps Organizational Leaders 

“One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.” – Arnold Glasow

This data can highlight problems in service delivery, which helps the organization improve its processes. Increased synergy in financial organizations is enabling risk and compliance managers to go one step ahead and leverage complaint […]

How Real-Time Risk Analytics Help Financial Organizations

Real time risk analytics is one of the most revolutionary parts of modern risk management frameworks. It is important to remember that previous to data analytics tools, it was almost impossible for most banks to access analytics in real-time. Banks and financial institutions collected risk data in spreadsheets and documents. Analysis of risk data was only possible after it had been cleaned up and standardized to be used for analytics. The steps involved meant that almost all the graphs and reports management had were based on […]

Getting Insights from Risk Reports

Risk reports should assist management in identifying errors and correcting courses before it is too late. This demands improved risk reports that contain more accurate data and information. These reports are a critical component of any good risk management system, that is why bankers are increasingly concentrating their efforts on their enhancement.

A two-pronged strategy is required to improve risk reports. Businesses must enhance their risk-to-action-item mapping, as well as their workers’ ability to cooperate on risk detection and reporting.

Enhancing The Framework for […]
