Reason for the hire:

Critical business services are defined as those whereby disruption to the provision of the service could have a material impact on either the client, the market and/or the franchise

This has become an increased area of focus by our regulators, driven by emerging operational risks and trends within the financial services industry (e.g. reliance on legacy infrastructure, cyber threats, increasing complexity of operations, reliance on vendors etc.). This is a new way of looking at the same risks
