Three Lines of Defense: Can Technology Help?

May 18, 2015 by Bonnie D. Graham 0

Today’s buzz: Three.

Your company may have already implemented, at least partially, a Three Lines of Defense model.

But when faced with technological challenges such as getting the most effective tools, or integrating different systems, the process can be time-consuming and reactive, rather than optimized and proactive.

Topping the list of questions you may ask, these could be the most urgent :

How can our risk management activities coalesce into a cohesive assurance program within our wider system of internal control?

How can our business leverage technology to establish a Three Lines of Defense model that delivers sound assurance supported by, for example, continuous auditing processes?

The experts speak.

Ganesh Ram, PwC: “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” (Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars)

Kevin Heckel, Deloitte: “Managing the risks we face today requires layer solutions including security, vigilance and resiliency.”

Jérôme Pugnet, SAP: “The term ‘Three Lines of Defense’ appears to come from medical research.”
