  • PRISM is a web-based end-to-end workflow automation system.
  • The focus of its new approach to ‘continuous supervision’ is on early identification of risks and conduct of supervisory actions.
  • This is aimed at helping supervised entities to strengthen their internal defences and resilience.

  • PRISM will have various functionalities with:
    • Built-in remediation workflows
    • Time tracking
    • Notifications and alerts
    • Management information system (MIS) reports and dashboards
