Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, a SAS customer for 27 of the 30 years the Cary software firm has been in business, is sticking with SAS for enterprise risk management services.

SAS will provide Nationwide with the means to protect policyholder information as well as integrating risk management for internal audit, compliance, legal and other needs.

Nationwide chose to deploy OpRisk Management from SAS. The product contains data management, analytics and regulatory reporting and disclosure applications.

“Many operational risks can exist across an enterprise, often making them the shared responsibility of dispersed risk managers,” said Mike Mahaffey, Nationwide’s vice president of enterprise risk management. “Nationwide plans to use SAS OpRisk Management across risk management programs to further enhance and integrate our ’enterprise’ risk management capabilities.”
