10 Essential Compliance and Risk Management Practices for 2023


In light of the recent economic downturn, many businesses are weighing the need for risk management with the desire to cut costs and increase revenue. Due to tighter budgets, business priorities have shifted. Three-quarters of chief risk officers (CROs) surveyed by PwC said they couldn’t keep up with the pace of change in the regulatory environment despite investment in their risk management program. In the next 12 months, 65% of CROs plan to invest more in data analytics, and 57% intend to automate their processes to monitor risk better.

In addition, nearly half of those surveyed are apprehensive about a more active regulatory and legislative environment, and 39% are very concerned about their company’s ability to mitigate compliance and regulatory risk. Combined with evolving cyber threats, these uncertainties test risk executives’ preparation for 2023.


10 Best Practices for Compliance and Risk Management 

An effective compliance and risk management program plays a central role in increasing customer trust. Below are ten key compliance and risk management practices to help you navigate the new year’s uncertain economic and security environment.

1) Ensure your compliance program is tech-enabled and scalable so that you can prioritize repetitive high-volume tasks.

2) Automate and use data analytics to improve monitoring and risk management while streamlining compliance activities so staff can concentrate on emerging threats.

3) Prepare a cybersecurity playbook and assess cybersecurity risks related to key strategic initiatives and significant transformations.

4) Improve fraud risk management capabilities through risk-based modeling and other advanced tools. 

5) Gain visibility into your supply chain with tools that capture and process real-time data flows, visualize trends, and investigate signals.

6) Put your workforce in a position to stop threats by providing them with the best tools and training. Remember, people are your first line of defense.

7) Partner with your CIO to shape your cybersecurity and privacy strategy as conditions and risks change. 

8) Provide regulators with the required data, including metrics, scope and boundaries.

9) Leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to run risk assessments and generate recommendations across risk and compliance programs.

10) Digitize workflows to increase efficiency, reduce manual errors, and enable data standardization to improve reliability, integrity, and auditability.
