Predict360 Risk Intelligence and Management Platform
Predict360 enables functional managers and staff to optimize day-to-day risk and compliance responsibilities while providing executive stakeholders real-time visibility into the risk and compliance profile of all business lines, locations and assets. The artificial intelligence (AI)-powered platform vertically integrates risks and controls, KRIs, regulations and requirements, policies and procedures, audit and examinations, and training in a unified, cloud-based system. Predict360’s SaaS architecture and modern technologies deliver predictive analytics, data insights for predicting risk and streamlined compliance.
Predict360 automates many tasks and workflows while improving quality and value of risk and compliance activity execution. The highly configurable platform creates risk and regulatory relationships between organizational activities and provides visibility into where risks intersect, providing stakeholders a deeper, wider and holistic view of risk and compliance. The platform includes the following modules, features and functionality:
-Regulations and Obligations Repository
Predict360 provides a repository that can capture all an organizations obligations, including regulatory requirements, business requirements, standards and frameworks that the organization needs to comply with. This repository allows the organization to link all of their policy & procedure documents, risks and controls, training programs, audits and assessments to these obligations and regulations, effectively creating a “map” of all related risks, control and governance items with the organization. This functionality enables the organization to identify gaps where they might not be meeting their regulatory obligations, identify risks to the organization and to quickly understand and assess the impact of a change in a regulation or obligation.
·This module also includes proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) technology using natural language processing (NLP) technology to categorize a regulatory requirement to a particular subject area as well as to identify the second and third-party requirements of a requirement requirement based on the regulatory text (effectively the “who” and the “what” should be done).
Optional content plug-ins are available to provide the complete Code of Federal Requirements (CFR) final test for both federal and state level requirements pre-loaded into the system. And a regulatory intelligence feed of all news and notifications related to relevant regulatory topics, sources, justidictions, agencies and news sources is also available.
-Task Management for Risk and Compliance Issues
This module provides a complete task & activity management system. This includes pre-built and customized forms and workflows to capture relevant details/fields, assign owners and impacted users, manage due dates and notifications, enable collection of supporting documentation, link to other tasks/issues, create project plan/subtasks, provide audit trails of changes and status updates, and enables effective collaboration among users while providing complete real-time visibility to all activities across the risk and compliance group.
·Instead of using disparate systems like email, shared folder and multiple spreadsheets to track details, this module provide a single source of record repository for all this information while enabling an effective evidence locker and audit trail to meet regulatory requirements while providing complete visibility to the organization.
Each product or solution contains pre-built forms and workflows for common risk and compliance activities, such as compliance monitoring & testing (QA/QC), complaints, regulatory changes, document update requests, training requests, internal audits, external audits, regulatory examinations, findings, cases & investigations, self-assessments, risk assessments/RCSA, IS/Cyber security assessments such as NIST and FFEIC CAT, control tests, loss events, risk incidents and many other common risk and compliance scenarios.
The benefits of this module is that all risk and compliance issues and tasks are captured in one system for complete visibility across the organization, a common user-interface reduces training efforts while ensuring consistency, and a complete evidence audit trail is available for regulatory examiners, auditors executive management to prove compliance and activities performed.

Risk Management and Assessments (RCSA)
Predict360’s Risk Management and Assessment product enables organizations to manage risks using proven enterprise risk management techniques such as Risk Control Self-Assessments (RCSA) to capture inherent and residual risk ratings and controls as well as additional details including risk owners, risk type, management comments, monetary impact and more. Individual risks can also be linked with their associated regulations and/or business obligation as well.
·An industry-standard or company-standard risk library can be set up in the system to provide guidance to each business unit or product line owner when completing a risk assessment to ensure they identify all potential risks that can their impact business or product while ensuring a common risk taxonomy across the entire organization.
·Inherent and residual risk ratings can either be captured as user-specified impact and likelihood values, or the system can prompt the end-user through a company-defined set of questions/criteria to ensure a consistent risk rating is calculated across the organization.
·Control Information can be captured in a summary control text field or as individual control items with attributes including efficacy, % implemented and weight to calculate the effectiveness a control has on managing a particular risk.Functionality linking multiple controls to a single risk and/or a single control linked to multiple risks is supported.
oUsing the efficacy, implemented % and weight, a current risk rating is calculated and updated in real-time to identify controls that are operating outside tolerance levels. Those values can be updated any time that an incident occurs or control tests fail to instantly flag emerging risks to the enterprise.
Periodic risk assessments can be scheduled on a re-occuring basis and automatically assigned to individual risk owners within each business unit and/or product line.Upon completion of these risk assessments, the system automatically rolls up the individual risk assessments to provide an enterprise view of the organization’s enterprise risk profile.
And each risk item and/or assessments can have an action items created to perform any type of remediation or improvement plan to manage the risk or improve the controls.
·Using the optional Issues and Incident Management product allows individual issues and/or incidents that occur within the organization to captured in a consistent fashion and linked with their associated risks, providing valuable information to the risk owners when the update their risks assessments.
·Additional content plug-ins can be purchased to provide an industry-standard risk library/taxonomy and/or risk assessments.
Note:The Risk Management and Assessments product includes basic control details such as control name, efficacy, % implemented and weight impact on a particular control.The Controls Management product delivers additional functionality to the Risk Management and Assessment product, including:
The Controls Management product enables additional details to be captured for each control, including:
·Links to each control’s documentation
·Action items linked to each control such as control design effectiveness tasks and/or control tests
·Incidents that can be captured as they occur within the business and linked to the associated controls (beneficial during the next RCSA)
·Action plans to improve or implement new controls
In addition, support for implementing and managing control tests is provided.These control tests can be scheduled on automatically reoccurring bases to verify that controls are working properly, and this product manages all the assignments, notifications, evidence captures and reports.And, if a control test fails, the efficacy value of the controls linked to the control tests can be automatically updated and thus the system automatically flags enterprise risks that are operating outside of tolerance.
·Additional content plug-ins can be purchased to provide an industry-standard control library/taxonomy and/or recommended controls that can mitigate particular risks.
Issue and Incidents Management
Predict360’s Issues and Incidents Management product enables organizations to manage, track, collect evidence and collaborate on all risk-related tasks, activities and incidents in real-time.Issues types can include include regulatory examination and agency findings, internal and external audit findings, risk or compliance issues, risk remediation plans, control improvement plans and other risk-related issues.Issues can be linked to their associated risks, regulatory requirements or control documentation.

·Automatic notifications and due dates can be distributed via email to related parties and owners.
·A calendar provides visibility to all risk issues being managed and their associated due dates.
·Dashboards and reports provides complete visibility in real-time to the status of all risk issues to risk owners, risks manager, senior executives and boards of directors.
Operational Risk and Loss Event Management (ORM)
Predict360’s Operational Risk Management (ORM) product enables organizations to capture process details and failure conditions for each business process, and to link those processes and failure conditions to their associated risks and controls.Loss Events that then occur in the business can be captured by business line users, and business process managers can then link those loss event incidents to the associated process and/or failure conditions.
·By analyzing the loss events, business process owners can make improvements to their business operations, while risk managers have improved clarity to risk issues and incidents, better visibility to how well controls are operating and a better understanding of the potential losses to the organization while managing enterprise risks.
Risk Insights with KRI Engine (Insight360tm)
Insight360 provides real-time insights into predicting emerging risk and identifying risk that are not operating within your expected tolerance levels. Insight360 dramatically reduces the effort to create risk reports and actionable intelligence while enabling real-time visibility to your organization’s risks and risk management efforts by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to augment internal and external risk data.
While Key Risk Indicator (KRI) metrics can help predict risks that are operating out of tolerance, risk managers often have difficulty obtaining this data from the business lines in a timely and efficient manner.Insight360 automates this process, dramatically reducing the effort required to collect this information and to provide this information to risk managers.
And while KRIs can often indicate problem areas, linking those KRIs to the associated risks and identifying the risks operating outside of tolerance in real-time is hard to accomplish.
·Insight360 solves this by linking the KRIs to their associated risks, and any change in a KRI can instantly flag that a risk level has increased for a particular risk that the KRI is linked to.
And even if an organization is already using internal KRIs, they often ignore external data, trends and news that can indicate emerging areas of risk within the industry until annual risk assessments or as part of a regulatory examination.
·Insight360 addreesses this by linking these external data trends with associated risks and the organization’s view of their current risk levels to identify discrepancies, enabling Insight360 to predict emerging risks before they become a problem!
