ISGN CorporationTM (“ISGN”), a leading provider of end-to-end technology solutions and services to the U.S. mortgage industry, today announced that AnnieMac Home Mortgage, a Mount Laurel, N.J.-based residential mortgage lender, has implemented ISGN’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Compliance RiskCheckTM to evaluate risk against the CFPB’s requirements. AnnieMac Home Mortgage selected the multi-user option under a 12-month subscription, which is renewed annually.
Dozens of new CFPB rules have taken effect over the past two years and more changes will continue to be released throughout 2015. ISGN’s RiskCheck is the only Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), cloud-based risk assessment tool available in the market today, and is designed specifically for lenders and servicers like AnnieMac Home Mortgage that are in need of a cost-effective, efficient risk evaluation solution to comply with the new and changing CFPB requirements. CFPB Compliance RiskCheck enables AnnieMac Home Mortgage to utilize a web-based system to conduct an end-to-end review of its policies and procedures. The platform contains a series of approximately 600 questions, which are broken out by three categories – compliance management, originations, and servicing – and then by area of risk.
The cloud-based self-assessment tool provides several help features including best practice sample answers, live compliance assistance and links to compliance regulations when completing the answers, which are then analyzed automatically using taxonomy in line with CFPB regulatory guidelines to calculate the residual risk. AnnieMac Home Mortgage will be able to generate a detailed report including compartment risk weightings, trends and high risk items, which can then be provided to regulators and to executive management for action plans.
“Failure to comply with the CFPB’s requirements can lead to severe consequences, and as our organization continues to grow, it is imperative that we address any risks that could result in non-compliance,” said Joseph Panebianco, CEO of AnnieMac Home Mortgage. “Keeping up with the latest CFPB regulations is challenging, but ISGN’s RiskCheck is a practical, reliable solution that simplifies the compliance management process.”
“To remain competitive, profitable and compliant, lenders should invest in innovative technologies that automate mortgage compliance with a quick break-even point and high ROI,” said Paul Imura, chief marketing officer of ISGN. “Leveraging a tool like RiskCheck can eliminate the research, guesswork and confusion over changing regulatory requirements. We are pleased to have AnnieMac Home Mortgage as one of our key customers to demonstrate the power of this much needed innovation.”

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

In this power panel at @...

On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...
