Technology & Innovation

Navigate emerging technologies to manage risks, enhance performance and improve governance.

Managing data and technology reduces risk and creates opportunities.

The financial crisis, major service interruptions (including headline security breaches) and a lack of transparency over market conduct have heightened the regulatory pressure on organizations. On trial is the industrial strength and security of systems, as well as the quality of data and management information.

As investment in Fintech continues, areas such as Blockchain and RegTech can expect greater scrutiny from regulators and investors. The use of SMAC channels – social, mobile, analytics and cloud – in financial services is growing and consumers expect channels to be transparent and easy to control. Big Data meanwhile presents you with an opportunity to anticipate trends and develop products and services that better match consumers’ needs.

Our FS - Technology and Innovation capability can help you manage technology risks to optimize operating performance and achieve greater governance and assurance over your IT controls and infrastructure. We provide practical recommendations that cut through complex business problems to focus on helping you enhance and protect your IT assets.

We do this by applying a risk lens as you navigate new emerging technologies, develop processes to protect information assets, address assurance over third-party systems, and align technology control capabilities and governance with your business strategy and regulatory requirements. Our forward-thinking advice on timely and complex technology topics helps guide you toward effective solutions.
