Enterprise risk management

What does it actually mean to manage risk effectively across the enterprise?

Risk is Risk is Risk. All risk is, in principle, the same.

Key information and topics covered 

Traditional risk management has developed from the bottom-up and in a risk and business-specific way. This means that certain risks in certain business areas are managed relatively well. This siloed approach has created inconsistencies, limitations, and inefficiencies in collecting, analysing, and managing risk information.

Risk is the effect of uncertainty on objectives (ISO 31000:2018). All risk is the same under this definition, and this is at the core of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM). We should view, analyse, and manage all risks in a consistent way while recognising any nuances for specific risk types.

ERM provides you with a greater level of consistency in managing risk, and as a result, a greater level of understanding and resulting engagement from your staff.
