About Enterprise Risk Services
Managing risk today is not what it used to be
Technological innovation, globalization, complex regulation and increased accountability at the senior management and board levels have all combined to significantly change the landscape of risk management today. Managing risk has become increasingly complex due to the new "Network Economy" and the emerging risks of e-business from online security to customer privacy. The complexity also comes from the:
- Increasing need for knowledge of local laws and customs
- Evolution of trading markets
- Pervasive nature of information technologies
- Higher accountability standards for boards of directors and senior executives
- Unprecedented complexity of the regulatory environment, pressing firms for better risk reporting and more integrated and comprehensive risk management
- Shortage of skilled personnel
To help the market cope, new positions, tools, rules and even language have been created. There are new executive positions, such as chief risk officer, chief security officer and chief privacy officer. There also has been a proliferation of risk management software and other technology solutions as well as new regulation mandating certain risk management practices related to security, privacy, operations, compliance and economic exposures. Indeed, the term "enterprise risk management" (ERM) has become part of the general business vocabulary.
