  • Using data analytics and continued learning of Intel's business environment, to identify emerging risks, hence influence operational business partners on appropriate risk mitigation actions.

  • Collaborating with counterparts in other regions and HQ in driving policy and process improvements, as well as delivery of data science projects to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our risk management and monitoring capabilities.
