In the Banking and Financial Services (BFS) industry, risk management has become a critical area of focus. Today, banks provide services through a wide array of vendors and third parties, as well as offer online services, trading, Net Banking, Real Time Gross Settlement System (RTGS) and various payment methods including the Electronic Clearing System (ECS), and National Electronic Funds Transfer (NEFT) System. Although these new options are beneficial for customers, they expose BFS providers to new risks such as phishing, identity theft, and fraud.

To combat risks of this nature, BFS organizations need to implement robust, sophisticated, and mature Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) programs to ensure that they are providing their customers with a risk-free and compliant experience, while also leveraging data and insight from ERP systems to give them a competitive advantage. With the fast pace of change in the current market scenario, new regulations and risks are emerging and evolving at lightning speed. This means ERM systems need to take a leading role in reducing loss and capitalizing on market opportunities.

Join this webinar with experts Dr. Robert M. Mark, Chief Executive Officer of Black Diamond Risk and former Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer of Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC), and Brenda Boultwood, Vice President of Industry Solutions at MetricStream. During this webinar, attendees will benefit from a discussion around how to build a robust and mature ERM program. Other topics for discussion include:

  • Considerations to take into account while envisioning and planning a strategic approach towards an enterprise-wide risk management program
  • Best practices in building a risk-aware organization
  • Steps to take when building and implementing an integrated ERM framework
  • Measuring and managing an integrated ERM program from inception to maturity
  • Defining the technology infrastructure necessary to support an integrated ERM program
  • Opportunities for banking and financial service organizations who have established a mature ERM program
