Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 5)

Step 5. Measure the effect of risks on decisions In order to account for the uncertainty both in the consequences of each scenario and its weight, consequence distributions are multiplied by weight distributions using the Monte-Carlo simulation method. Normally 10000 simulation runs should be sufficient for most compliance risks, however more simulation runs may be… Continue reading Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 5)

Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 4)

Step 4. Allocate weights to each scenario In order to determine the weight allocated to each consequence scenario of events triggered by compliance risk, historical data, modelling, as well as expert opinions, can all be used, individually or in combination. Weight of each scenario can involve the following factors: the range of laws, along with… Continue reading Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 4)

Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 3)

Step 3. Determine the range of consequences for each scenario In order to quantitatively assess compliance risks the next step involves defining the possible range of values for each consequence scenario. Typical consequences can involve the following factors: Consequence scenario Range of consequences A.     Small fine for violation, for example a fine for three days… Continue reading Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 3)

Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 2)

Step 2. Identify causes and consequence scenarios Causes and consequences for the bow-tie diagram are normally derived from the regulations as well as through consultation with risk owners and subject matter experts. Common consequence scenarios for compliance risks (just a quick example, there is more) include: Risk area Examples of consequence scenarios Licensed activities and… Continue reading Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 2)

Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 1)

Wherever possible companies should apply quantitative risk analysis to measure and prioritize compliance risks. Wait what? We can do better than a compliance heatmap? Apparently :)) The following information should be collected and recorded for each identified risk: Possible consequence scenarios as described in the legislation or other regulatory requirements (usually includes fines, 3rd party… Continue reading Compliance Risk Management – Risk analysis (part 1)
