    What can you learn about Governance and Risk Management from Game of Thrones?

    If you’re not a total recluse, you might have heard about this show called Game of Thrones, a.k.a. building up loyal lovable characters over complex, multi-year story arcs only to have them brutally slaughtered, burned, or decapitated without any warning.

    New features for the Report, Excel exports and more

    Summary of Changes 1. New features for the Report The Report was extended by a whole new section, the Compliance Summary. This is a very powerful feature that gives you a condensed view about the compliance to regulatory and statutory requirements based on the Assessment outcomes included in the Report. The management summary was re-designed and enriched with features. Report sections are now collapsable. 2. Excel/ CSV exports You can now quickly export all the responses of an assessment for further analysis in Excel, Google Sheets and all other applications that support CSV/ tabular structures. It includes all the details like Assessment objects and deviations that make subsequent data analytics even more fun. 3. New Assessment Recipient status view Some of our customers run big assessments, with dozens of recipients. The new tabular view on recipients enables you to track outstanding vs finalised responses better. You can switch between tile and tabular view in a fraction of a second.

    8 neue Anforderungen für CIO und CISO aus der MaRisk-Novelle 2016

    Vor wenigen Wochen, im Februar 2016, wurde ein Entwurf für die Novelle der Mindestanforderungen an das Risikomanagement (MaRisk) durch die Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht (BaFin) ausgegeben. Sollte der aktuelle Entwurf zur Konsultation so verabschiedet werden, würde dies sicherlich eines der größten regulatorischen Änderungen im deutschen Bankenwesen der letzten Jahre darstellen. Wie bei jeder neuen regulatorischen Anforderung, müssen verantwortliche Personen in den jeweiligen Fachabteilungen analysieren, welche Bedeutung die neuen Anforderungen für ihre Verantwortungsbereiche haben und welche Maßnahmen zur Umsetzung notwendig sind. Bei Alyne haben wir diesen Schritt schon einmal vorab für die Verantwortlichen von IT (CIO) und IT-Sicherheit (CISO) in Banken durchgeführt und haben 8 wesentliche Änderungen für diese Bereiche identifiziert.
