Trust and consumer confidence is the foundation upon which the Internet has been built. Leading commerce and financial services companies worldwide have long used Secure Socket Layer and Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS) technologies to secure customer communications and transactions. But with the rise of Web 2.0 and social networking, people are spending more time online and logged in, and they are communicating much more than just their credit card numbers. Unfortunately, Web security practices have not always kept pace with these changes. Many organizations use the SSL/TLS protocol to encrypt the authentication process when users log in to a website, but do not encrypt subsequent pages during the user’s session. This practice is risky because it leaves website visitors vulnerable to malicious online attacks, and can result in millions of users being unknowingly exposed to threats simply by visiting a trusted website. This white paper discusses the imperative need for Always On S

Because electricity is a key commodity for business it represents significant financial risk. Yet many power management systems remain isolated and separate from the rest of the business enterprise. The result is poor access to incomplete information, with only limited knowledge of risk exposure. An integrated, comprehensive power management system that includes metering, software, and power quality mitigation equipment offers the most holistic, systems-based approach to managing this risk exposure.

Much has been written and discussed about Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as it relates to compliance, corporate governance, financial controls and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX). Until now, there was very little available to the risk manager on how to apply ERM to day-to-day operations.

With data breaches widespread, no organisation can afford to be complacent, but most data losses are avoidable. Many of the breaches making headline news are caused by the loss or theft of laptops and other portable devices. To protect themselves from financial and reputational damage, encryption technologies can reduce risks by ensuring the information on such devices is secure when users are on the move. They can also add value by allowing the secure sharing of information among authorised users and by enabling more secure remote working.

Since the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) made revisions to the Financial Reporting Model Regulation (Model Audit Rule) in June 2006, the insurance industry’s attention to the risks associated with financial reporting has been on the rise. Structured similarly to Section 404 of the Sarbanes‐Oxley Act, the Model Audit rule places a significant burden on C‐level executives to ensure their oversight in the internal controls for financial reporting (ICFR) process. Executives within these insurance organizations, both public and private, will be required to evaluate their internal controls in preparation for the first reports due in 2010 for the 2009 reporting period.

The financial collapse of 2008 had the greatest impact on the financial services industry since World War II, resulting in consolidation and extensive regulation. The crisis coincided with increased competition from emerging economic powers, nonbanks and fintech organizations. Consumer behavior, from the adoption of mobile banking to P2P payments, forced banks to retool and respond with innovative products and investments in new delivery channels. Technology changed rapidly as well. In the capital markets, trading became fully automated, with pricing, risk decisions and settlement across exchanges made in milliseconds

Banks and financial institutions have faced a spate of regulations centered on capital adequacy since the financial crisis started in 2008. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS) initiated a series of reforms to strengthen risk, capital and liquidity rules across banks. Among the important changes recommended are new rules for calculating Tier I and Tier II capital and the inclusion of additional risk measurement components for market risk, liquidity risk and counterparty risk. Despite these changes, a key drawback of the Basel framework is its focus on historical capital adequacy. While being useful, it does not help assess the impact of stress events on banks from an ex-ante basis. Hence regulatory agencies in several jurisdictions have mandated banks to define a forward-looking capital plan that incorporates stress scenarios.

The concept and practice of stress testing has been around for many years. While traditional stress testing methodologies are still valid for firmwide scenario analysis and stress testing, special techniques and attentions are needed to successfully achieve the goal of firmwide capital adequacy in forwardlooking stress scenarios. During the 2007 financial crisis, many financial institutions were not sufficiently prepared for the ensuing liquidity crunch and capital drains. Perhaps if banks had worked through different economic scenarios prior to the crisis, they would have been in a better position to weather the storm. Inadequate preparation for crisis can lead to systemic risk and severe economic and political turmoil.

The financial crisis that began in 2007 highlighted the major shortcomings of the regulatory framework around minimum capital requirements and liquidity requirements. In response, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision made substantial revisions to its guidelines - specifically, by including more demanding capital and liquidity requirements now commonly referred to as Basel III framework. National banking authorities around the world are adopting the new Basel III framework as a way to eliminate systemic liquidity risk and promote greater transparency of risk management practices.

Financial services businesses face unprecedented market challenges. Disruption from Fintech firms, increased local and international regulation, geo- political upheavals and wavering customer loyalty. The need to fully understand the market, to innovate, to reduce costs and be more competitive has never been greater, and this is where AI can help. According to one fintech research company, by 2030 the financial services sector could reduce operational costs using AI, by as much as 22%. It suggests that will equate to around $1 trillion in efficiencies. So, from a purely operational point of view, doing nothing is not really an option for companies that want to remain competitive. Today, financial services firms across the board need to rejuvenate customer experience to protect against client attrition, and protect those customers against risk. While data analysis and visualization are key to making sense of data, the fundamental challenge for all businesses is building an infrastructur
