Orion Governance Use Case

Helping Banks Overcome Data Challenges

Banks are challenged by a number of reasons to meet the 14 principles and becoming compliant with BCBS-239 lies against the 5 primary sections:

Governance and infrastructure

Risk data aggregation capabilities

Risk reporting practices

Review, remediation and corporation


Challenges Faced by Banks

Many banks continue to operate with risk data residing in disparate silos, spanning subsidiaries, lines of business, and various types of risk.

Often, these institutions lack the means to effectively incorporate risk data from subsidiaries, resulting in inaccuracies and incomplete granular risk data.

Moreover, an inadequate data architecture, devoid of transparency or lineage, is commonplace. The rigid nature of their infrastructure hinders their capacity to meet evolving requirements.

Additionally, substantial gaps in data governance persist, including the absence of comprehensive data dictionaries and uniform data taxonomies, untracked changes, missing reconciliation procedures, unapproved data quality policies, incomplete key quality indicators, and a lack of audit trails.

Leveraging EIIG for BCBS 239 Compliance:

Orion Governance comprehends the challenges faced by banks and provides EIIG as a solution to expedite BCBS 239 compliance. Specifically, here’s how EIIG aids in implementing all 11 principles related to overall governance and infrastructure, risk data aggregation capabilities, and risk reporting practices:
