Today enterprise risk management covers much more than traditional risks. High profile incidents such as fraud, embezzlement, theft, waste, etc. increase the need to proactively manage risks throughout the company. A negative risk event can lead to financial and reputational damage to the company, and organizations that fail to adopt a solid risk-based approach are more likely to lose their market position.
To perform risk management and mitigation processes, a company needs to do the following:
- visualize data for understanding the specific risks an organization faces in order to mitigate primary threats
- protect against and manage risks related to the use, storage and transmission of corporate data and information systems
- develop strategies to reduce employee-related risks and conduct internal investigations when these occur
- plan responses for technology or equipment failure in order to prevent poor performance
- identify the impact of and prepare for changes in the enterprise environment, including changes that accord to regulatory policies and procedures
- anticipate and reduce the effect of harmful results from adverse events that could negatively impact business initiatives
- create and promote risk awareness and risk training materials relevant to employees at all levels
Companies want a visible linkage between internal corporate risks and the actions that can be taken to deal with these risks. A comprehensive risk-based approach demands the implementation of a practical and effective RM solution.
