Corporate Resource Services Experiencing Increased Demand for Risk Management and Compliance Staffing Solutions
Bank Secrecy Act, IFRS Convergence and Cyber Security Threats Generating Unprecedented Demand for Expertise at Banks and Financial Institutions
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Corporate Resource Services, Inc. (NASDAQ:CRRS), (the “Company” or, “CRS”), a diversified technology, staffing, recruiting, and consulting services firm, today commented on increased demand for the company’s professional staffing services targeted to the financial sector.
“Compliance in today’s regulatory environment is a constantly-changing, ongoing process”
“Banks and financial services institutions have been hit with a ‘perfect storm’ in terms of compliance and risk management,” said John Messina, Chief Executive Officer for CRS. “The Patriot Act continues to place necessary pressure on compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act. At the same time, all companies that currently use GAAP1 to report financial results are preparing for a transition to the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). These trends, joined with unprecedented threats to IT security and customer data, are generating tremendous demand for consultants with the experience and knowledge needed to mitigate risk and ensure compliance.”
Recognizing that institutions need additional expertise and resources without entirely outsourcing their audit and risk management functions, CRS works with banks and financial services companies to provide qualified professionals on demand – allowing for full compliance with a more cost-efficient, flexible staffing model.
“Compliance in today’s regulatory environment is a constantly-changing, ongoing process,” said Tom Seavey, Managing Director for CRS’ Professional Services Group. “The growth of global terrorist organizations drives a similar increase in compliance standards with the Bank Secrecy Act. Companies are challenged to keep pace when faced with equally complex challenges in IT security and pending convergence with IFRS. Our professionals can engage with clients immediately – providing up-to-date expertise and the bandwidth necessary to assess risk and achieve compliance on time.”
Through the company’s AccountAbilities Professional Group, CRS has access to more than 1,000 highly specialized financial risk and technology consultants assigned daily to clients in the U.S. and abroad. Based in Newport Beach, Calif., AccountAbilities serves many of the largest regional, national and international banks, as well as financial and consulting divisions of the most prominent national and global CPA firms.
“Unlike previous events including Y2K and even Sarbanes Oxley, compliance in today’s financial services market is open-ended and constantly evolving,” added Seavey. “In the past year alone, our division experienced growth in excess of 400 percent – and expects to meet similar demand for the foreseeable future.”
