In their report, Chartis summarizes: "Thomson Reuters Accelus Risk Manager enables organizations to establish a framework for operational risk based on their risk appetite. Accelus Risk Manager (ARM) captures information such as incidents, indicators, assessment responses and scenario analysis data.
