The financial crisis of 2008 unleashed a wave of new regulation that touches nearly every aspect of banks’ operations. With so many complicated new requirements to understand, analyse and implement on a global basis, the traditional mechanisms for managing compliance are fast becoming outdated. Common mistakes include the duplication of controls, gaps where controls should be and a lack of sophistication in the implementation of new technology and processes.

If used properly, such technology can be used to review regulations and identify potential obligations in a safe and effective way, eliminating the potential for control gaps and duplication.
