Successful companies use a management philosophy that focuses not only on risk avoidance but also on risk-taking as a means to value creation — viewing all challenges and opportunities through the lens of risk. Deloitte can help you tackle not only the readily apparent risks facing your company — security and privacy, regulatory compliance, technology, fraud and more — but also the risks that threaten your business strategy and future growth.
Our Enterprise Risk Services practice is a global leader in helping clients manage risk and uncertainty, from the boardroom to the network. We provide a broad array of services that allow clients around the world to better measure, manage and control risks to enhance the reliability of systems and processes throughout the enterprise. With core competencies encompassing capital markets, control assurance, internal audit, regulatory consulting and security services, our risk management professionals offer a wealth of experience across a wide spectrum of industries.
Some business sectors manage industry-specific risks with a high degree of sophistication; others have a less refined approach. But it is a rare company, we contend, that intelligently manages the full spectrum of risk by assessing and addressing risk from all perspectives and quarters. As it occurs infrequently, when ERM is done right we believe it deserves special designation; as such, we call these model companies "Risk intelligent enterprises.“
A complete risk assessment is a fundamental first step towards a broader risk management system. It not only provides a comprehensive risk portfolio but also creates awareness across your management team and ensures a better understanding of all the issues and factors which do influence your risks and opportunities. Risk assessments can be used for your annual internal audit plan, to become compliant with legal requirements and finally as an input to your strategic thinking and business development.
Our risk catalog provides a roadmap for linking requirements to policy to assessment and finally to risk and compliance dashboards. A fully integrated risk approach provides the opportunity to simplify the complexity created by management silos and therefore helps to reduce the costs and efforts needed to establish a more efficient compliance management system.
