Data is the hottest topic in business today. In discussions that range from
understanding performance to predicting future outcomes, data is at the core.
However, data has a bad reputation. Because businesses have been collecting data for
decades, the amount that we must analyze can seem insurmountable. Simply saying
“data” is enough to conjure images of someone poring over a thick stack of
spreadsheets, manually going through row after row to identify performance, trends
and figure out what to do with them. This intimidating view is all too common.

Businesses today are faced with the almost insurmountable task of complying with a confusing array of laws and regulations relating to data privacy and security. These can come from a variety of sources: local, state, national, and, even, international law makers. This is not just a problem for big businesses. Even a small business with a localised geographic presence may be subject to laws from other states and, possibly, other nations by virtue of having a presence on the internet.
In many instances, these laws and regulations are vague and ambiguous, with little specific guidance as to compliance. Worse yet, the laws of different jurisdictions may be, and frequently are, conflicting. One state or country may require security measures that are entirely different from those of another state or country. Reconciling all of these legal obligations can be, at best, a full time job and, at worst, the subject of fines, penalties, and lawsuits.

While traditional stress testing methodologies are still valid for firmwide scenario analysis and stress testing, special techniques and attentions are needed to successfully achieve the goal of firmwide capital adequacy in forwardlooking stress scenarios. During the 2007 financial crisis, many financial institutions were not sufficiently prepared for the ensuing liquidity crunch and capital drains. Perhaps if banks had worked through different economic scenarios prior to the crisis, they would have been in a better position to weather the storm. Inadequate preparation for crisis can lead to systemic risk and severe economic and political turmoil.
