    State of RegTech - Part 3: Alyne's Strategy

    Alyne's Strategy In our blog series on the State of RegTech we have explored the current market segmentation and offered some predictions on the future of the industry. At Alyne, we consider ourselves a leading RegTech company and have been identified as such in recent studies (e.g. "100 RegTech startups to follow" by Jan-Maarten Mulder, "Top Regtech Performers" by Market FinTech, "International RegTech Companies Defining the $100-Billion-Dollar Industry" by Let's Talk Payments). We would therefore like to share some of our thoughts on the strategic development of Alyne in the context of the RegTech market development.

    IT Schutzbedarf nach MaRisk 2016 analysieren

    Der aktuelle Entwurf zur Novellierung der MaRisk fordert neben vielen weitreichenden Neuerungen in einem kleinen Satz im AT 4.3.2 “die Feststellung des Schutzbedarfs, die Ableitung von Sicherheitsanforderungen sowie die Festlegung entsprechender Sicherheitsmaßnahmen” für die Steuerung und das Controlling von IT-Risiken. Was hier kurz und knapp beschrieben ist, bedeutet für viele Organisationen eine wesentliche Änderung aktueller Prozesse im IT-Risikomanagement. Im Folgenden erarbeiten wir wesentliche Fragen, die sich bei der Durchführung einer Schutzbedarfsanalyse stellen und bieten Antworten zur Umsetzung einer nachhaltigen Lösung für IT-Risikomanagement. Diesem Ansatz folgend, sind Organisationen in der Lage, einem Regulator die angemessene und wirksame Umsetzung der Anforderungen aus der MaRisk AT 4.2.3 zu demonstrieren.
