Of course, APRA can only do so much. Instead, it must compel the management and directors of those entities (most likely the Board of Directors) to ensure that their own institutions remain sound.

APRA primarily does so through the imposition of prudential standards. These standards largely involve risk management. The reason they are put into place is to increase resilience to business disruption arising from internal and external events and reduce impact on business operations, reputation, profitability, depositors, policyholders, and other stakeholders.
