Cyber-related incidents represent a growing threat to the reputation and economic stability of financial institutions. At PwC, we understand the importance of mitigating cyber risks, and we can help you craft an integrated risk management program that provides a high level of cyber resiliency.
Financial institutions are increasingly seeking to build integrated AML and sanctions programs. PwC’s professionals can help by performing money-laundering vulnerability assessments, compliance program evaluations, and gap analyses. We recommend approaches for reducing risk, enhancing overall risk management, and implementing operational solutions.
Fraudsters are constantly adapting their schemes to make detection by traditional fraud models more difficult. Meanwhile, regulators expect financial institutions to improve their fraud management programs. PwC can help by providing services that go beyond core compliance programs, internal controls, and traditional risk management. We offer a sophisticated, flexible approach that reflects your culture, needs, and issues, and that addresses connections with related areas of financial crime.
Proliferating global business opportunities have raised the risk of international corruption. Governments around the world are taking this risk seriously, as measures such as the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act demonstrate. Regulators are investigating public and private corruption to promote fair and transparent business practices. At PwC, we understand that clients need to stay ahead of the curve to conform to international expectations while continuing their global expansion.
During the pandemic, Fusion Centers adapted quickly from physical, onsite operations to remote and virtual environments. In coming months, the big challenge is the evolution into the next generation of hybrid Fusion Centers, against a backdrop of an even more challenging macro, business, and risk environment. New ways of working and technologies can make a hybrid model just as successful as—or even better than—the 100% onsite model.
