Mathematical models are increasingly being used to inform business decisions and estimate risk in a manner that is often material to the organization. Because these models can have material impact on an organization's business strategies and financial statements, it is imperative that the models are accurate at all times. This means the models are constructed in a sound and logical manner, can accurately produce real-world predictions, and are subjected to strong change controls to ensure the integrity of the model's performance at all times.
A bad model can create material financial misstatements, constrain revenue opportunities, result in poor strategic decisions, create regulatory violations, fines, and sanctions, damage an organization's reputation among its customers, employees, shareholders, and regulators, and more, depending on the purpose of the model.
Released on May 22, 2018, the new RSA Archer Model Risk Management app-pack helps organizations establish sound governance processes around the models they use to run their business on a day-to-day basis.
