Enterprise Risk Management

Manage your highest risk areas by embedding an enterprise risk management (ERM) program throughout your organization’s operations.

ERM programs can help reduce risks and develop a strong foundation for strategic, thoughtful responses during unexpected events.

ERM programs take a comprehensive approach to your organization rather than solely reviewing risks of a single department or branch. Focusing on data and performance metrics, a strong ERM program provides analysis of risks organization-wide and assesses how they could impact the organization in various ways.

How ERM Programs Help Protect Your Organization

An ERM program can help your organization:

  • Improve Operations. ERM programs provide consistent oversight and track risks that may disrupt operations.
  • Strengthen Financial Performance. Managing issues visible to business leaders is more cost-effective than trying to manage through a crisis.
  • Focus on Metrics. ERM programs embedded in operations provide visible metrics and accountability that further drives performance.
  • Develop Risk Identification Culture. ERM programs drives awareness of issues in a business and can prioritize risk identification and tracking throughout an organization.

Address Key Risk Areas

ERM programs provide a clear view of variables to which you may be exposed—whether internal, external, retrospective, or forward-looking—with enterprise risk assessments identifying risks across key exposure areas:

  • Financial
  • Operational
  • Reporting
  • Compliance
  • Governance
  • Strategic
  • Reputational

Risk management procedures can support organizations of any size and are often especially beneficial to those in select industries including:
