About the webinar

The first decade of the 21st century has seen significant changes in regulatory structures, increased physical risks of terrorism, and dynamic shifting trade and labor patterns that are threatening to undermine the best corporate strategies. Today, the business agenda is often set by external uncontrollable forces such as regulators, nongovernmental organizations, increasing commodities costs, environmental change and war.

Success in this scenario is possible with a more evolved and matured integrated enterprise risk management program that provides greater transparency and a consistent view of risk across the enterprise necessary for risk decision making and performance management, as well as regulatory compliance and reporting.

This panel discussion will outline an integrated framework for deploying effective risk management program across the enterprise that addresses the changing business landscape and enhances the ability to react rapidly to adverse events.

This webinar will help attendees to-

  • Identify a set of critical challenges in managing enterprise wide risk
  • Describe risk management in a connected and chaotic globalized economy
  • Define the technology infrastructure necessary to support the ERM requirements
