What is Enterprise Risk Management?
Risk is part of all our lives.
As a society, we need to take risks to grow and develop. From energy to infrastructure, supply chains to airport security, hospitals to housing, effectively managed risks help societies achieve. In our fast-paced world, the risks we have to manage to evolve quickly. We need to make sure we manage risks so that we minimize their threats and maximize their potential.
Risk management involves understanding, analyzing, and addressing risk to make sure organizations achieve their objectives. So it must be proportionate to the complexity and type of organization involved. Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is an integrated and joined-up approach to managing risk across an organization and its extended networks.
Because risk is inherent in everything we do, the type of roles undertaken by risk professionals are incredibly diverse. They include roles in insurance, business continuity, health and safety, corporate governance, engineering, planning, and financial services.
The Institute of Risk Management’s mission is to build excellence in risk management, in all sectors, and across the world.
