Rightsizing 1st Line Risk & Control

Why now?

The perception is growing that, contrary to the original idea of the 3 lines model, we now have too many people in the 1st line, managing an ever-expanding portfolio of risks, but at the same time, still rising numbers of people in the 2nd and 3rd lines validating, checking and monitoring both the 1st line and each other. 

The hope is that technology can help drive the efficiencies and transparency needed to change this, and also that the 3 lines model itself can be refined so that arguments over where people sit take a back seat to discussions of who is best suited to executing particular tasks, regardless of their location in the 3 lines.

However, that growth has raised questions over what is the best practice operating model for the function, the roles it should fulfil and their potential overlap with other lines of defence, the potential for delegation and loss of core business accountability, and a host of other issues. 

What can you expect?
