Committee Members: Ann Reese (Chair); Jon Herrick; William Hirshorn; Igor Modlin; Doug Spell; James Tabacchi.

Risk Committee

The ability to identify, manage and mitigate risk is fundamental to the services that DTCC provides to its members and to the financial markets generally, and oversight of these activities is a primary activity of the Board of Directors of DTCC (the "Board").

The Board has established a Risk Committee of the Board (the “Committee”) to assist the Board in fulfilling its responsibilities for oversight of risk management activities at DTCC and at the SIFMUs (collectively, the “Company”) focusing on the following critical aspects: (1) oversight of risk management systems and processes designed to identify and manage credit, market, liquidity, and operational risks to DTCC and its subsidiaries, including the SIFMUs; and (2) due to the Company’s unique capabilities and position, oversight of the Company’s efforts to mitigate certain “systemic risks” that may undermine the stable operation of the financial system. To provide additional, dedicated focus and align oversight of specialized risk categories with the domain expertise of other committees that have been established, or may be established from time to time, by the Board (each an “Other Board Committee”, and collectively, “Other Board Committees”), certain risks will be overseen by Other Board Committees. While these risks will not be directly overseen by the Committee, the Committee will, nonetheless, coordinate risk oversight with these Other Board Committees, as appropriate, to achieve comprehensive and holistic oversight of the Company’s risk-related matters.

It remains the responsibility of DTCC’s management team, including through the activities of the Management Risk Committee, to identify, manage and mitigate risk as appropriate.

Committee Members: Anthony Murphy (Chair); Jon Herrick; David Inggs; Craig Messinger; Igor Modlin; Andrea Pfenning; James Tabacchi.

Technology & Cyber Committee

The Board of Directors (the "Board") of DTCC has established a Technology & Cyber Committee to assist the Board in overseeing all aspects of the Company's technology and cyber program, procedures, performance and risks relating to the Company's information technology and cybersecurity infrastructure.

Committee Members: Nigel Faulkner (Chair); Bill Capuzzi; Kelley Conway; Chris Gelvin; David Inggs; Craig Messinger; Tony Miller.
