READING, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Nov 14, 2012) - Trillium Software®, a business of Harte-Hanks, Inc. (NYSE: HHS), today announced that executive Jon Asprey, vice president of strategic consulting for the company, will present at the FIMA 2012 Secure Data Management and Financial Data Management Strategy Conference running November 20th - 22nd in London.
Asprey's session, scheduled for the main conference on 21st November is titled: "Data Matters! - Accelerating Regulatory Compliance and Reducing Risk." The seminar will show how ensuring appropriate levels of data quality and adopting robust data governance process are both key to meeting the demands of the increasing regulatory burden. In his session, Asprey will review examples from past and present regulations such as Basel II, Solvency II and FATCA [Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act], to illustrate how practical data management approaches can make all the difference in achieving compliance.
"Regulators require financial services firms to demonstrate controls, validate accuracy and consistency of source data and show they have the operational processes to effectively manage capital assets," Asprey said. "Organisations need to gain visibility of the quality of their data and be able to prove data is accurate and fit for purpose. They must establish the appropriate levels of transparency and control to drive the corrective actions necessary, thus ensuring that the quality of the data feeding into critical risk measurement and monitoring processes is trusted and certified for use."
Asprey leads the advisory consulting practice at Trillium Software where he is responsible for the delivery of best practice advice and guidance to Trillium's many international clients. He has more than 15 years' experience in information management, data quality management, data governance and data analysis, gained through working for both global consultancies and software vendors across a variety of international Financial Services clients. During the last five years, Asprey has advised senior business officers at a number of global financial services firms in support of Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) initiatives within credit risk. Most recently, Asprey has been working with financial clients to assess the data requirements and challenges associated with FATCA compliance.
