Critical Controls

Critical control management is the critical component of effective risk management and one that too few companies implement and monitor effectively.

Targeted and routine verification of critical control effectiveness remains the only sure-fire mechanism for delivering preventative and mitigative risk reduction.

To meet verification resourcing demands, programmes need to demonstrate maximum coverage with minimum effort. Engaging line management, operations, and maintenance staff to see repeated checks and “checking the checker” activities as worthwhile demands low-friction data gathering tasks and maximum value outputs and insights in close to real-time, further straining resources.

What is the effectiveness of your critical controls, now, and what are you doing to strengthen the weakest ones?

To Succeed:

Shared and clear understanding of the risk scenario and the role critical controls play in the prevention and mitigation aspects.

Detailed understanding of what makes a critical control effective in every specific causal and consequential pathway.

Linking control performance standards directly to compliance, business requirements, and best-practice.

Following up on weaknesses identified in verification activities.

Implementation of ongoing reviews and improvement cycles.

What Good Looks Like:

Critical controls cross event boundaries: dissolve all risk and control silos with a standardised approach that is easy to understand, monitor and optimise.

Standardise all control effectiveness assessments to create a level playing field for all investment decisions.

Leverage activities so that a single verification activity has maximum application.

Enable the performance of verifications where the activity needs to be performed with low-friction and single data touch.

Configure dashboards to monitor control assurance levels as they are verified.
