In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis regulatory exams have become increasingly demanding for governance, risk, and compliance professionals. New rules brought about by the Dodd-Frank Act will continue to shape future examinations including safety and soundness, compliance, market conduct, and risk-based targeted exams. We can expect these changes will require examiners to spend more time onsite, request more documents, and extend the scope and/or depth of their examinations. This means it is more important than ever to avoid the classic mistake of sharing examination documents through ad-hoc, manual processes and delivering highly sensitive data through unsecured channels like mail, e-mail, thumb drives, and FTP.
In response to these increasing burdens financial institutions are looking to take control with a more structured, collaborative process for collecting, refining, and submitting regulatory information. Download this white paper to learn more about Intralinks VIA.
