Why Does It Matter?
Regulators are increasingly aware how spreadsheets form part of regulated processes and now often need evidence of management controls and data governance, to ensure that regulatory submissions are error-free and a fair reflection of the business.
Spreadsheets provide huge power and flexibility to users, but their lack of management and audit controls means that highly-regulated businesses lack the data governance controls in their spreadsheet estate that can expose them to regulatory, shareholder, reputational and legal issues caused by flawed regulatory compliance processes and submissions.
What Causes Spreadsheet Risk?
Spreadsheet risk is more likely to occur if you use:
- Complex formulas.
- Sophisticated macros.
- Multiple, integrated spreadsheets.
- Spreadsheets integrated with external data sources and corporate applications.
