Top 30 Risk Review for Merger Activities
Our client, a top 30 bank, was acquiring a new bank in a different demographic. There were concerns as to how the current risk alignment with InfoSec and Fraud rules would align to significant risk, loss and exposure during and subsequently after the acquisition.
Syntrove deployed a Risk and Compliance solutions team to lead the effort of reviewing and enhancing the current rules in Actimize, SAS Fraud Manager and ThreatMetrics. With the average experience level of everyone on the team exceeding 20 years, we were able to quickly identify potential gaps and make a risk-based rule tiering to minimize the impact.
As an outcome of the review, several new rules, as well as new data attributes were developed, tested and deployed. With the success of the engagement, they extended the team to elevate their continued monitoring while some of the best practices are being developed and deployed for a continued elevated platform.
