Product description

View a sample of this title using the ReadNow feature

Risk assessment is an integral part of an institution's risk-based audit and controls for all products, services and activities. Time, new products, regulatory changes, competitive environment changes, and market conditions are just some of the factors that can impact risk assessments. In order for financial institutions to satisfy the regulators, they must constantly evaluate risks, weigh risks against rewards, and make decisions based on these evaluations.

Risk Assessments for Financial Institutions is a compilation of all the best tools from our most popular risk and audit manuals; here is a reliable resource that you can trust to save you time, make your organization safer, and make your job easier. Updated regularly, there are now risk assessments for such topics as social media, liquidity management, cloud computing, asset management for trusts, and remote deposit capture.

Risk Assessments for Financial Institutions specifies risks based on specific rating systems in the following areas:
•  Mobile Banking
•  Remote Deposit Capture
•  Information Security
•  Information Technology
•  Business Continuity
•  Electronic Banking
•  Compliance
•  Audit
•  Lending
•  Finance and Accounting
•  Enterprise Risk Management
