II) on-site supervision which includes the analysis and evaluation of internal processes, procedures, and controls within the business address of the licensed entity;

III) event monitoring through review of operational activities of licensed entities, their risk models, and customer interaction.
From a prudential oversight perspective, the focus is on system controls, governance adjustments, risk management, and risk mitigation measures adopted by licensed entities.
