The Risk Intelligent Board
Viewing the world through risk-colored glasses
Boards are under pressure – regulatory, legal, fiduciary, stakeholder – to oversee the risk management activities of the company.
But many board members are unsure how to approach their risk-related responsibilities. They are uncertain about roles and delineation of responsibility. They wonder where to start and how to bring all the disparate pieces together. They look for answers to important questions such as: Where does risk oversight belong at the board level?
This paper provides a thoughtful perspective on the risk management issues boards should be concerned with and offers concrete suggestions for adopting a Risk Intelligent approach.
