About Our Digital Banking Assessments

Our Digital Banking Assessments practice works with organizations that operate in the digital banking sector and have to manage cybersecurity, technology debt, cyber-liability, audit, and governance risks. Our 20+ years of experience has proven that an effective way to manage these risks is for an organization to retain an independent third-party firm to assess the maturity and level of these risks.

Our Digital Banking Assessment team comprises former regulators, chief privacy officers, chief security officers, and compliance officers with a wealth of expertise and experience in digital banking. In addition, our team members have worked with dozens of financial institutions around digital banking, often alongside senior leadership, and board members on a wide range of issues. Our team members have been involved in providing input to some of the key guidance in the market today including guidance from DFS, Federal Reserve Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), and the Monetary Authority of Singapore.
