How to Build Compliance Oversight
As an organization evolves, the risk of siloed operation also rises. Each department uses its own system and communications infrastructure, which – without proper oversight and supervision – can make regulatory compliance efforts even more challenging.
Disconnected processes and a lack of operational and compliance oversight put an extra burden on organizations.
of financial firms are outsourcing the compliance function due to the need for additional assurance on compliance processes.
“We carry out spot checks but there is still a very real risk of missing a major compliance failure across complex systems and processes.”
Performing ongoing, proactive communication monitoring, infrastructure testing and compliance checks to prevent failures can be a resource hungry task. Keeping up with the speed at which employees are added or replaced in the system, communication channels are changing, and regulations are modified is putting significant weight on IT and compliance teams.
So, ensuring that your team has full operational and compliance oversight covering the communications environment, voice recorders, policies and regulated users can be an overwhelming exercise. Besides, staying on top of the state and performance of telephony and enterprise voice networks to make sure they are ready for daily operations required specialist skills and resources. This problem is even multiplied when a company has complex deployments at multiple locations in different geographical regions.
“We need to constantly demonstrate that we have the necessary compliance measures in place. This is a daunting task as we have global operations with disparate IT environments."
The extent of data that needs to be captured, stored and properly managed across various systems makes it hard to locate and retrieve legacy data in a timely manner. Not to mention that communication records and the related metadata are often complex and costly to be properly extracted from legacy recorders and data sources. It’s no surprise that Compliance, Audit and IT teams usually struggle with the increased workload and the lack of tools to retrieve data from across different sources in an auditable format.
This can easily result in fire-fighting once an organization needs to respond to regulatory requests and prove that all required compliance practices are in place.
“My team spends too much time on monitoring and collecting data for day-to-day controls and management reporting activities. We lack a single view of operations, processes and adherence.”
Evolving organizations’ efficiency can be hindered by a disconnect and lack of communication between business units and the compliance function. It can easily happen that IT teams are not fully aware of the latest regulatory expectations, and using siloed systems while compliance officers lack an overall view of the state and health of systems, licenses, compliance alerts, and possible performance issues.
Unified reporting and real-time dashboards around trends, anomalies and events are often missing, making it hard for IT and Compliance teams to gain actionable insights. At the same time, managers and executives lack a single pane of glass view of operations and adherence for better decision-making.
