In addition, the team supports financial organizations with the design and implementation of the internal technology control framework. Our team helps to manage technology risks to optimize operating performance and achieve greater governance and IT assurance over our clients’ controls and infrastructure.

In a technology-driven environment, the Financial Services industry is forced to develop towards a digital business operating model. Organizations need to capitalize on their technological capabilities to fulfill increasing client expectations, respond to cost pressure and initiate sustainable growth. Technological advancements and regulatory pressure also require organizations to continuously re-evaluate how technological capabilities can drive business strategy while operating within the boundaries of (global) regulatory requirements.

We are a team of experienced IT Risk Management professionals who collaborate with global and local organizations to navigate the challenges that technology poses.

We are pleased that we have successfully managed the changing overall situation and are quite confident that we can also respond to future challenges with attractive, practical solutions."
