What is operational risk management?

Operational risk management is how your organization identifies, assesses, mitigates, and monitors the potential threats and challenges that emerge in day-to-day business operations. A strategic mix of technology and best practices helps minimize the likelihood of disruptions, reputational damage, losses, litigation, or other potentially concerning events stemming from internal or external factors.

Managing internal risk is only half the battle.

Businesses today have gone from on-site server rooms to third-parties, cloud providers, etc, but outsourcing services does not outsource the risk. As your network grows, you are responsible for ensuring your vendors, partners, and other third parties are complying with your policies and procedures.

Extend compliance and get better visibility into every corner of your enterprise and vendor network for more complete, comprehensive operational risk management today.

Keep you and your vendors compliant in every region where you operate.

Risk is no longer bound to your headquarters. As regulations continue to shift and your employee or vendor networks expands, so does the scope of your compliance responsibilities. Explore which geographic regulations you need to keep an eye on and which related parties you need to extend internal policies and procedures to as your network grows in our Regulations Without Borders Infographic.

Eliminate the common frustrations of managing operational risk.

It feels like a new regulation comes out every day — and the scope of these regulations has also grown as our networks have. Traditional, manual methods for monitoring and controlling both enterprise and vendor operational risk can’t keep up, which is why strategic teams are turning to technology to:

  • Gain visibility into operational risk before operational or compliance failures occur — wherever they occur – within your enterprise or across its vendor network.
  • Proactively monitor, audit, analyze, report, and take preventative or remediating steps with exceptional speed and efficiency.
  • Become agile and gain surety in meeting obligations under a growing universe of regulations
  • Realize quick ROI as your new tools not only reduce penalties but eliminate the time and resource drain of previous approaches.
  • Create a single source of truth to enable better compliance and quickly comply with evidence requests from auditors.
  • Avoid compliance penalties, reputational damage, or other costs.
