And while a bank or insurance company can comply with all the formal rules, you also need a healthy risk attitude. Which requires a change of mindset and an open dialogue”, according to Regine Slagmulder, Professor Accounting & Control at Vlerick Business School. She asks attention for the development of a risk culture that goes beyond ticking boxes.

It requires you to stop and think, then develop an overall concept so you can launch your product to market with a substantial lead.
