The Future of Risk

New game, new rules

The risk landscape is rapidly changing with daily headlines bringing new reminders that the future is here and it is not showing signs of slowing down. We have entered the fourth industrial revolution, enabled by technology and driven by constant disruption. In the past, risk management was often an exercise implemented as a result of fear and avoidance, with organisations focused primarily on completing necessary, compliance-driven activities. This is changing with many leaders now viewing risk in terms of their potential to create value and drive performance.
