Creating a one-stop shop for the Financial Industry
RICHMOND, VA (PRWEB) July 07, 2015
Strategic Risk Associates (SRA), a leading financial services consulting firm, and Accutive, a provider of IT services and products, announce a new partnership that will deliver significant benefits to organizations seeking a wide range of Governance, Risk, and Compliance Management Solutions.
This partnership addresses demand in the market for effective enterprise risk management services and technology. Jointly developed products are centered on cyber security, privacy, strategic planning, credit risk, financial controls, and compliance technology. Services also include C-level support such as fractional, virtual, or part time CEO; CFO; COO; Chief Audit, Risk, Credit, and Lending Officers; and Chief Information Security Officers (CISO’s).
Anchored by strong management teams of experienced former bankers, bank examiners, and cyber security executives, the joint team has the credentials and experience to help large and small banks.
“The business environment is constantly evolving and organizations are finding their risk profiles can change rapidly based on external and internal conditions,” says Michael Glotz, Managing Partner of SRA. “The Accutive and SRA partnership will provide holistic solutions related to Enterprise, Regulatory, Fraud, Operational, and Financial risk to supplement the internal effort of financial institutions or provide turnkey solutions.”
Accutive’s CEO, Fariborz Ordukhani, says that these comprehensive service offerings are designed to assist with the design, implementation, and maintenance of Risk Management Programs. He adds, “The partnership is an excellent complement to our current IT and cyber security services and solutions.”
Isabelle Theisen, CISO at Accutive, explains that the new partnership will allow a holistic approach to cyber security risks throughout a bank or a financial institution as opposed to being merely focused on security and information technology.
