Banking operations and delivery platforms are areas where hard to detect internal control issues exist. These control issues often provide the “root cause” of significant regulatory compliance issues. Many Compliance officers, while versed in policy and programs, do not have the deep operations expertise to locate and resolve internal control issues and risks which can lead to substantial and adverse audit and regulatory compliance findings.
