Business Risk Management in Practice 1

Driving Quality Control via Questionnaires and Executive Dashboards

Our executive leaders had a problem - they were getting multiple loan quality control testing reports from different functional teams.  Each team had different testing criteria, different error definitions, different metrics and different time frames.  It was difficult for our executive leaders to determine acceptable error rates and nearly impossible to compare production quality across functional teams.  By establishing a consistent framework in RSA Archer, which utilized robust quality control questionnaires, workflow, and standard error calculations, we were able to provide an enterprise-wide consolidated quality control program.  This program has enabled greater efficiencies for the testing teams and improved executive oversight via dashboards.

How Much is Your GRC Program Worth?

Whether you are a prospect customer or a GRC “old hand” trying to expand your program, you will be asked to justify GRC value at some point. Like many of us, you probably struggle to define and clearly articulate clear business benefits. It ain’t easy, but in this presentation you will learn a variety of techniques from veteran practitioners with over 20 years of GRC experience to develop quantitative and qualitative benefits to track and communicate GRC business value.

Simple Wisdoms from an RSA Archer Agile Journey

If you want something you have never had, you’ll have to do something you have never done.  MD Financial Management began its GRC journey in 2016.  Throughout this expedition, MD has gained treasured wisdoms on what worked well and not so well.  MD has shaped a governance and stakeholder model that builds collaboration, momentum, and results and adopted an agile approach that works for MD by choosing simplicity over sophistication in development, administration, and support.

Advanced Workflow to the Rescue:  Solving Complex Approval Challenges

Education and understanding the differences between Data Driven Events and Advanced Workflow is the first step in the conversion process of complex approval flows in your RSA Archer GRC implementation. Testing the waters in a development environment becomes crucial to a successful migration effort. Getting around lack of support for uploading existing records at any point in the workflow avoids a fatal deal breaker. Come learn how NASA successfully mitigated the risk of Death by DDEs using Advanced Workflow.

Starting From Square One – RSA Archer Out-of-the-Box Light

RSA Archer comes out the box exploding with content for Risk Managers to enhance their processes. However, many companies struggle to convert their paper processes into robust systems processes. We’ve all heard to go “out-of-the-box” and avoid the allure of complex customization – yet we think the real secret to success is to start small, and mature your process before you build.

A Fool With A Tool, Is Still A Fool, Creating An Effective and Efficient Risk Assessment Workflow

What is driving your IT Risk Assessment process?  Most likely, it is state and/or federal laws or company policy and other legal obligations. At UF, we are beholden to FERPA, HIPAA, FIPA (Florida Information Privacy Act), GLBA, PCI, CJIS, and many other contractual obligations from our researchers. We realized that the tools needed are only as good as the processes that back it up. Join us as we share how RSA Archer allowed us to effectively target assessment effort and involve all of the right partners (e.g. privacy, legal, procurement etc.,) to eliminate over-emailing, reduce our meeting times, and much more.

Internal Audit’s Integrated Approach with the 2nd Line of Defense

Join this session to learn how and why Internal Audit initiated and led the development of an integrated approach program. The session will cover:

  • The immediate benefits gained for the audit group when the audit use case was implemented – more accuracy and efficiency in managing the audit universe, annual risk assessment and annual audit plan processes
  • The foreseeable benefit for the three lines of defense when other governance groups implement RSA Archer – leveraging risk and control assessment information, coordination and leveraging of control testing, potential agile audit plan as risk process matures for first and second line of defense
  • Why Internal Audit still has a seat at the table even though our implementation is complete

Rio Tinto’s Journey Towards Integrated Enterprise Wide Management of Risk

For 145 years, Rio Tinto has been pioneering the production of materials essential to human progress. The minerals and metals we produce play a vital role in a host of everyday items and innovative technologies that help make modern life work. This presentation will share an overview of our vision for integrated management of risk across the 3 lines of defence, progress made and lessons learnt to date. Highlights to date include how every risk we capture in RSA Archer can be viewed through the risk and performance thresholds of each management team from the site to the Group level, and how we are able to profile risk across the Group by both functional area and line accountability. Next up: slicing and dicing monitoring and performance data, integrated assurance, streamlining our control framework and leveraging machine learning, natural language classification and clustering.
