Rapid changes in laws and regulations (covid test requirement for companies, import/export restriction, etc.) force you as a business owner to quickly introduce and implement measures. In parallel, measures have to be taken due to the economic situation to secure the earnings situation. In our tutorial, you’ll learn how to capture risk, take and track action quickly through early risk detection, and achieve comprehensive, real-time reporting via dashboards.
Covid-19 has shown the business community the disadvantages of global economic chains: restricted mobility of goods and people due to closed borders, drastic slumps in the economy up to the complete standstill of individual economic sectors. At the same time, government support for individual sectors of the economy, in conjunction with the suspension of bankruptcy, encourages the creation and expansion of zombie firms.
Risk management is, therefore, more topical than ever. Operational risk (OpRisk) management, e.g. supply chain risk and counterparty risk management in the context of the zombification of the economy, are key components of corporate governance. In addition, active management of financial risks is needed to assess the financial impact of the pandemic. Measures are defined for the secure control of the company and applied to individual parts of the company or organizational units. Real-time reporting and dashboards allow management to track implementation status and success in terms of mitigated risks at any time – without the need for time-consuming physical reports.
The area of cyber risk poses enormous challenges for companies:
Defending against scam or ransomware attacks requires continuous assessment of current external risks and taking action in the cyber domain. In addition to the external risks, there are internal risks from data breaches, exacerbated in particular by the current home office situation. TopEase helps you evaluate how effectively you secure your home office workstations and sensitive information and measurably mitigate your risks.
In addition, there is an increasing number of regulatory requirements for the cyber sector that companies must meet. With TopEase, not only can the effects of regulation be evaluated operationally and financially, but the implementation of the measures can also be documented in an audit-proof manner. We support, e.g. the complete risk management according to ISO 27000 in the area of information security.
The main problem our customers face is internal capacity in risk management. The increased legal requirements, especially for complex business impact analyses (BIA), and the creation of far-reaching contingency plans involving the complex and evolved IT architectures are currently the greatest challenges that represent the internal capacity in risk management.
A current issue is the impact of COVID-19 on ensuring the operation of key systems – can they be operated entirely from the home office? Often, additional head monopolies prevail here. It is not uncommon for the core systems of the critical infrastructure in finance and insurance, but also in energy utilities, to be mainframe systems without sufficient documentation of the processes and interfaces. How should this be handled?
