'Enterprise Risk Management for Basel II'

'Enterprise Risk Management for Basel II'

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Securac Corp. ("Securac") (BULLETIN BOARD: SECU) an enterprise governance, risk assessment and compliance software and services vendor and provider of Acertus(TM), the leading integrated software platform for governance, risk and compliance, has released a white paper on Enterprise Risk Management for Basel II. The paper focuses on good Enterprise Risk Governance.

Successful, compliant and effective governance requires an holistic, enterprise-wide and top-down approach to managing all information including risk data. It is essential that a governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) framework be put together in such a way that management derives maximum benefits. Compliance on its own is not enough. The key requirement is that data must be integrated and that there be "one view" of any situation. This does not mean the construction of a single, complex repository of data with every risk, control or event having a many-to-many relationship with all other data elements. What is required is twofold: that data from lower level information and risk systems be collated upwards to create a repository of data for use by management; and that management sets its objectives and strategic risks and that these be used to govern the company and to set the tone, the high level criteria used to manage the lower level systems.

Securac's Acertus(TM) delivers this infrastructure and is providing organizations with this capability.

"Regulations come with masses of detailed requirements, but the underlying purpose is to have well governed, risk-controlled companies that provide shareholders and stakeholders with confidence in their executive management," states Terry Allen, Chief Executive Officer, Securac. "Lindsay Cox of Securac has captured the essence of key issues corporations are dealing with today and provides insight into areas of focus around the Basel II Accord."
