The regulatory environment in which organisations operate today is becoming more and more complex. This particularly applies to entities of the financial sector, which need to have a clear understanding of the requirements affecting their organisation and the ways of ensuring compliance with them. Regulatory requirements also exist for IT-related activities, since IT systems as well as the data managed via these systems represent a critical asset for each organisation which needs to be adequately protected.
Here are some of the challenges you might face:
Lack of understanding or personnel to identify which IT-related requirements need to be complied with by your organisation;
Difficulty to come up with solutions in order to ensure compliance with applicable requirements or to address compliance gaps identified by your internal or external auditor;
Internal doubts related to a revised operating model (e.g. IT outsourcing) or new client solution (e.g. web-based payment platform);
Insufficient experience or lack of resources needed for the preparation of documentation related to an IT project requiring the formal approval of the regulatory authorities.
