Managing the risk in a process does not equate to managing Financial Crime risks. This presentation focuses on the need to have a more predictive and proactive approach including opportunities that a threat-led assessment can provide to proactively identify and manage risk at a more granular level. Within the Risk Assessment function for SCB, we are currently working on how we can develop the Threat-based Risk Assessment Capability which Fraud is developing in other risk areas. The presentation will focus on a practical example of the effectiveness of Threat-based Assessments where we worked with our Retail Banking Colleagues to measure the threat posed by Money Mules. This is a practical example of how the threat-led approach improves our insights in the assessment space, and how we propose to build on this even further with the aim of becoming more dynamic and predictive in SCB risk management, including further into our risks in AML, Sanctions, Fraud, and Compliance.
