In today's environment, Operational Resilience tools enable market participants (MPs) to safeguard themselves from potential threats and failures, adapt, respond, recover and also learn from disruptive events. This is critical in order to minimize the impact on the delivery of its critical services and product offerings. Also, Cloud is another key area of focus that offers a number of benefits for MPs such as increased security, faster processing speeds, and lower cost. However, the over-reliance on one cloud service provider may introduce concentration risk. Finally, key sustainable ESG initiatives such as the creation of a structured approach for flushing out and measuring the downsides and upsides of external engagement are critical. Managers who know their external value at stake (eVAS) will not only know whether they have the appropriate risk mitigation strategy but are more likely to shift their organization to attain and maintain it.
