Decoding Article 5

This cornerstone article lays the groundwork for how a financial entity should construct its ICT risk management framework. The salient points include:

  • ICT Risk Appetite: The formulation of an ICT risk strategy that aligns with the organization’s overall risk appetite.
  • Multi-layered Risk Assessment: This mandates the regular identification, classification, and evaluation of ICT-related risks.
  • Monitoring & Reporting: Continuous tracking of ICT risks and the reporting mechanism involved.

How to Achieve Compliance?

  1. Top-down Approach: Begin with buy-in from the leadership for resource allocation and endorsement of risk management strategies.
  2. Alignment: Merge ICT risk management with your overall corporate strategy.
  3. Holistic Assessment: Regular audits and assessments to identify and remedy vulnerabilities.
  4. Education: Staff training and awareness programs to instill risk management best practices.
