Enhancing data analytics and metrics
Managing risk associated with the design, development, deployment and management of automated systems and solutions requires an inventory and assessment of each use case; modifications to risk frameworks to incorporate emerging tools and trends (in-house, externally and via third parties); and adoption of a risk mindset with a focus toward monitoring outcomes, identifying risk threats, and enhancing overall governance of systems. Below are four pillars that can help support your organization manage it all:
Establish governance processes that span the review, use, and assessment of technology and systems throughout the organization with clearly defined risk roles and responsibilities. Educate stakeholders on potential and emerging risks..
Monitor regulatory, legal, and reputational risk developments and ensure stakeholder groups assess and implement requirements and/or controls appropriately. Align system deployments and governance standards with internal standards and regulatory guidelines. Ensure mechanisms are established to identify, escalate, and manage potential vulnerabilities.
Align risk challenge/ oversight to the current vision, strategy, and operating model for technology/system solutions. Inventory current technology landscape, along with planned use cases, models, and tools. Monitor 3rd party risks associated with incorporation of automated systems/ solutions, as well as data protection, storage, and confidentiality.
Perform system risk assessments around areas such as compliance, governance, security, fairness, bias, accuracy, and explainability. Evaluate testing, training, and deployment standards. Identify KPIs to monitor outcomes, as well as detect anomalies, fraud, and “data poisoning”. Continually assess technology solution resiliency and reliability.
Helping organizations in their efforts to achieve the highest level of integrity and to manage the cost and risk of litigation, investigations, and regulatory enforcement actions.
