  • 5 Promises a RegTech Company needs to keep to be relevant in 2016

    Smaller picture of people starting a running race

    2016 has arrived and if we are to believe the talking heads on blogs, Twitter and LinkedIn, it is the year FinTech companies will continue to dismantle and replace banks and the RegTech force awakens.

    My prediction is that RegTech developments will certainly be closely watched by like-minded entrepreneurs, B2B focussed investors and regulated companies. The open question remains, who will actually emerge as relevant in the RegTech space in 2016 and why. I believe there are five promises a relevant RegTech company will have to keep in order to justify the current attention in this area.

  • Can Risk Management and Compliance be digitalized?

    Digitalization is a seemingly new buzz word on the agenda in many organizations as well as in pitch decks of savvy consultants. It describes the introduction of digital technology to an organizational process to make existing activities more effective or deliver a new service to the organization. Avoiding manual steps, human intervention and any unnecessary interfaces are commonly a focus point. Over the past decades, the term has been used in various contexts, from actually transforming physical processes like type setting to digital printing or using computer aided design instead of pencil and paper. However, in today’s practice, businesses usually mean leveraging X-as-a-Service offerings to apply flexible and scalable technology to optimize a specific business outcome when talking about digitalization.

    Compliance vereinfacht

    Two people crossing the street on a crosswalk

    Viele kleine und mittlere Unternehmen werden als Bedingung für die Zusammenarbeit von oftmals stark regulierten Großkunden zur Umsetzung bestimmter Standards oder um einen Nachweis ausreichender Reife gebeten. Die Kosten zur Umsetzung dieser Standards ist für kleinere Unternehmen im Verhältnis zu den Budgets deutlich höher. Fehlende Expertise in einem bestimmten Fachbereich kann die Compliance-Kosten zusätzlich in die Höhe treiben.

    Alyne bietet Anleitung sowie einfache und umsetzbare Kontrollen, um gezielt die Anforderungen aus Standards wie unter Anderem die ISO27000 Gruppe für IT-Sicherheitsmanagement, die ISO 31000 Gruppe für Risikomanagement, ISO 22300 für Notfallvorsorge, dem NIST Cybersecurity Framework, COBIT 4.1 und 5, COSO und PCI DSS in Ihrem Business umzusetzen. Nutzen Sie die Alyne Bibliotheken, um Ihrer Organisation Expertise zur Verfügung zu stellen und demonstrieren Sie einen hohen Reifegrad gegenüber Ihren Kunden.

    There is a new buzzword rocking the financial services industry: RegTech.

    According to the easy algorithm of combining a short form of an industry to be disrupted with the suffix “-Tech”, RegTech stands for “Regulation Technology”. To explain it, we have to make a little excursion to last week’s hot topic in the form of FinTech (Financial Technology).

  • Simplified Compliance

    Are you under pressure from your customers to comply with certain standards?

    Simplified Compliance

    Two people crossing a crosswalk

    Many small and medium businesses are requested to comply with various standards or respond to assessments for proving sufficient maturity to provide services to larger and often times highly regulated organisations. Cost of compliance and implementation can be disproportionately higher for smaller businesses, if there is not sufficient subject matter expertise available in house and conventional approaches to compliance are applied.

    Alyne provides guidance along with simple and actionable controls for your business to meet requirements defined in many leading standards such as the ISO 27000 group for Information Security Management, ISO 31000 group for Risk Management, ISO 22300 for Business Continuity, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, COBIT 4.1 and 5, COSO, PCI DSS and more. Using Alyne’s control statement library provides an easy way to demonstrate maturity of your organisation without the typically high cost of hiring subject matter expertise.
