A10: #bigdatamgmt Organizations should start Smarter Risk initiative by bringing all stakeholders and LOBs into its planning & execution

A10: #bigdatamgmt Organizations should start with development of an enterprise-wide risk framework--and assessment of risk data sufficiency

A9: w/ #SmarterRisk, we help decision makers understand exposures & act w/ confidence, knowing they can trust their #risk data #bigdatamgmt

A9: #bigdatamgmt check out this video at  - Trust analytics video

A9: #bigdatamgmt Smarter Risk shows an organization interdependency of all risks--financial, oper, IT, etc.--across otherwise-siloed LOBs

A9: #bigdatamgmt Learn about how CBA is gaining value from their #SmarterRisk approach on Livestream from #IBMVision 

A9: #bigdatamgmt Smarter Risk helps an organizations by rolling up risks into their larger enterprise-wide perspective. All eyes wide open!

A8: #bigdatamgmt Smarter Risk rides on growing adoption of predictive modeling & visual exploration tools by data-savvy biz decision makers

A8: #bigdatamgmt The Smarter Risk approach aligns w/ growing adoption of BI, risk mitigation, and performance mgt tools by knowledge workers

A8: #bigdatamgmt The Smarter Risk approach aligns with the growing adoption of #bigdata EDWs to manage "single version of truth" risk data

A7: #bigdatamgmt Strong risk intelligence--grounded in risk DW, risk analysis/modeling, risk-data governance--is foundation of Smarter Risk


#bigdatamgmt A7: #SmarterRisk about building #trust & driving biz value w/ context-rich #risk intelligence to support risk-aware decisions

A7: #bigdatamgmt At the heart of #IBM Smarter Risk is improving organizations' ability to govern and secure their risk-relevant data.

A7: #bigdatamgmt Smarter Risk mitigates financial, operational, fraud, and IT risk and security impacts on enterprise.

A7: #bigdatamgmt Smarter Risk = #IBM approach 4 help customers build trust across org siloes. Act w/ confidence, make risk-aware decisions

A6: Building trust in risk data is essential b/c federated trust systems is a principal basis for #BigData systems esp cloud #bigdatamgmt

A6 Another benefit is having the risk side of the house collaborating with the forensics talent #BigData #bigdatamgmt

A6: #bigdatamgmt Trust in risk data creates a business climate in which external compliance reporting is crisp, confidence, straightforward

A6: #bigdatamgmt Value of building trust in risk data is can reach decision consensus faster. All facts/factors vetted in shared context

A5: #bigdatamgmt Lack o trust in risk data/proc might contrib to "analysis paralysis" decision inertia: risks too cloudy 2 act positively

@IBMAnalytics A5: Negatively impacts the ability of the org to raise capital - will be more expensive compared to orgs that do. #bigdatamgmt

A5: #bigdatamgmt Hopefully, lack of trust in risk data & mgt processes will spur orgs to implement strong data governance. Hopefully!

A5: #bigdatamgmt Lack of trust in risk data/mgt processes creates dangerous biz climate encouraging reckless gut-instinct decision making

A5: #bigdatamgmt Lack of trust in risk data & in risk mgt processes adds biz risk of risk analyses being disregarded--no matter how accurate

@IBMAnalytics A4: Big data has increased the drivers of reputation risk in a #corpgov context - external data veracity. #bigdatamgmt

Q4 #BigData data fusion de-anonymization has helped focus our stds devel team more on GRC for  #nist #bigdatamgmt

A4: #bigdatamgmt Shift toward audit logs in #bigdata & adv stat analysis on that data allows fine-grain historical+predictive risk modeling

A4: #bigdatamgmt Log data is the audit trail without which you can't do advanced statistical analysis on historical risk data.

A4: #bigdatamgmt Log data fundamental to risk mgt--e.g, IT security incident & event mgt depends on logs stored in #bigdata repositories

@IBMAnalytics A3: Seldom see risk-bridging. See the greatest need for it between #CIO, #COO and #CMO. #bigdatamgmt

A3: #bigdatamgmt Have compliance mgmt. an integral part of collaboration environment with proper alerts based on defined scenarios #BigData

#BigDataMgmt “Our research: 44.7 percent of GRC execs plan 2 address bus. process redesign via engagement w/management consult.serv.”

A3: #bigdatamgmt Risk managers can't bridge risk siloes if data siloed. Enterprise risk mgt needs consolidation in enterprise data warehouse

@jameskobielus ,#bigdatamgmt  - whitepaper - Big Data & Cultural Alignment

#BigDataMgmt JAnalysis of 664 global GRC practitioners--Picture worth a thousand tweets

A1: #bigdatamgmt Assessing the complexity of risk is the key..can also be leveraged to instill trust among various stakeholders #BigData

Q2: Siloed Compliance "depts" w/weak domain knowledge are unable to contribute materially. Ex: Compliance in urgent care #bigdatamgmt

@IBMAnalytics A2: Not ensuring individual accountability for various risks means no integration with decision-making. #bigdatamgmt

A2: Make risk mgmt inherent in processes. I think much focus on the risk side stifles creative solutions. #bigdatamgmt

A2: #bigdatamgmt Risk siloes--each LOB only considering risks from their narrow perspective--plus siloed risk mgt tools are a barrier.

A2: #bigdatamgmt Big barrier to enterprise risk mgt is getting beyond reactive "cover yr a**" decision making. Risk mgt should be proactive

A2: #bigdatamgmt Chief barrier to ent risk mgt is cultural: business thrives on action-oriented reward-seeking, Tunnel vision re full risks?

A1: #bigdatamgmt Enterprise-WIDE risk mgt ensures that risks in ALL parts of business are factored into equation. No risk siloes!

@jameskobielus ,A1:#bigdatamgmt and hopefully driving more opportunities as risk is reduced

A1: #bigdatamgmt Enterprise risk mgt ensures all risk factors--e.g., financial, operational, IT, fraud, etc--included in decision scenarios

A1: #bigdatamgmt Enterprise risk mgt adds strategic value by helping vet "rewards" of various strategies against risks. Reality check

A1: #bigdatamgmt Enterprise risk mgt adds strategic value by buffering business strategy against downsides--e.g., noncompliance penalties

The "if you could take a few minutes 2 complete this questionnaire" post-encounter inquiry is most wishful of thinking. Yes if only I could!
