Course Benefits

The Probability Risk and Impact System (PRISM) is the GFSC’s risk-based framework for the supervision of regulated firms. This systematic supervision enables the regulator to focus resources where they have assessed there is a higher risk of failure due to financial stability or reputation.

In attending this course you will fully understand how PRISM works, be able to assess the impact on your firm and to identify areas which require action in order to be prepared for a regulatory visit.

This course is aimed at directors, NEDs, compliance officers and all other staff with regulatory responsibilities.
