Define business objectives, processes, products, risks, and controls, and map the relationships across these data elements. Document organizational hierarchies, and link risk appetites to strategic business objectives. Catalog and manage operational risks and associated details such as risk description, category, hierarchy, and ownership in a centralized library and risk framework.
Plan, schedule, and perform both top-down and bottom-up risk assessments. Once they are complete, route the results for review and approval. Enable simple assessments by rating a risk, and advanced assessments using multiple factors and risk scoring to meet variations in risk assessment methodologies across business units, regions, and products. Add or delete risks and controls on the fly while performing an assessment. Also, assess the overall control environment based on multiple factors.
Define the logic for computing inherent and residual risk scores, and analyze them through heat maps. Aggregate the scores based on averages, worst-case scenarios (maximum), or best-case scenarios (minimum). Roll up the scores to an assessed organization, objective, product, or process.
In compliance with the Basel Accords, capture and categorize internal risk events and losses across multiple impacted organizations. Aggregate loss events, analyze loss trends, conduct a causal analysis, and initiate corrective actions across the organization. Define loss thresholds, consolidate data from external loss data exchanges, and conduct a loss data analysis.
Measure and track key indicators for risks (KRIs), controls (KCIs), and performance (KPIs). Set thresholds to identify potential threats, and mitigate them in advance. Enable correlative analyses between various key metrics. Send alerts and notifications on any breach to relevant personnel, and define multiple follow-up actions.
Record findings stemming from risk assessments and control tests. Recommend action plans to modify controls or define new controls as part of the issue remediation process. Monitor the status of the implemented actions at every stage, and track them to closure.
Access real-time information on risk management programs through role-based landing pages with dashboards. Leverage dynamic heat maps to view risks by organization, product, process, or risk category. Slice and dice the data using easy filters, and track the movement of risk from inherent to residual on a heat map based on the effectiveness of the controls. Gain a 360º view of risk management through advanced visualization of key metrics. Personalize the home page based on your specific analysis needs.
Delivering Business Value
