Our structure

At CommBank, we manage risk using a Three Lines of Accountability structure, where Line 3 is audit.

Line 1

Line 1 works front and centre as the business partner that enables the organisation to manage its risk effectively. From cyber risk to financial crime, Line 1 partners with business units to make sure we are supporting vulnerable customers, so they can bank with confidence. 

Roles in Line 1 are broad, varied and fundamental to the bank’s success. By enabling the identification of risk, Line 1 professionals make a measurable and meaningful impact to both the business and its customers.
