This involves maintaining and reporting on progress across the whole risk portfolio, resolving and raising issues as they arise, engaging TRP to secure annual funding for relevant risks.
- Working with business funding portfolios to secure funding for all remaining material risks, operating key elements of governance for Material risks (approvals etc), liaising with business operations and risk teams for all aspects of operational IT risk, this includes ownership of the annual resilience review that assesses the effectiveness of the CBP-supporting IT systems and acting as the interlock between the central group team and SMEs within the engineering areas.
- The in-depth assessment requires close attention to detail and much partner interaction with subsequent agreement of remediating actions which are then tracked to completion.
