<p>"To be effective, risk management actions and decisions must be based on the most up-to-date regulatory information," said Scott Gracyalny, managing director and global lead of Protiviti's Risk Technology Services group. "With the Complinet Regulatory Enabler for the Governance Portal, we provide our customers with automatic notification of all regulatory issues and changes that directly affect them. This allows our customers to quickly incorporate industry-wide regulatory changes, track the progress of decisions and determine the impact across the enterprise, ultimately saving time while increasing accuracy and transparency."</p>
<p/>
<p>The Governance Portal integrates Protiviti's proprietary content and consulting expertise with commonly accepted governance frameworks to establish a comprehensive platform for the visibility and insight needed to manage and mitigate critical risk and compliance issues. The Governance Portal organizes entity-level documentation, regulatory topics, risk evaluations and control testing around a configurable process framework that enables information analysis from various points of view. The Complinet Enabler offers clients access to regulatory information from more than 160 regulators and exchanges in more than 35 countries, tracking more than 550 individual regulator events such as policy statements, speeches, rule filings and consultation papers.</p>
<p/>
<p>"In the current environment, many companies are finding it harder than ever to stay on top of regulatory changes and manage their risk and compliance efforts effectively, all while controlling costs," said <span class="xn-person">Chris Pilling</span>, CEO at Complinet. "With the governance framework provided by Protiviti and the direct stream of regulatory intelligence from Complinet, these organizations finally have all the tools and automation they need to increase risk management efficiency and drive down costs."</p>
<p/>
<p>The integrated technologies effectively create a live data connection between the Protiviti and Complinet solutions, delivering a daily feed of global regulatory intelligence to the Governance Portal. The linkage is based on Complinet's industry-leading taxonomy, which allows compliance themes and global regulatory rule developments to be linked to a company's specific business hierarchy established within the Governance Portal. This approach ensures that only relevant regulatory intelligence is delivered to the appropriate person managing the risk. Connecting to Complinet provides companies with greater assurance that their compliance and risk frameworks appropriately consider current and emerging regulatory issues.</p>
<p/>
