Risk management is an increasingly significant component of sound corporate governance. The monitoring, identification, quantification, reporting, control and mitigation of all risks and opportunities influencing an organization has become a familiar if still tricky, management task. The pressure on all companies to get Enterprise Risk Management right is enormous, with rating agencies, regulators, and investors all demanding sustainable, predictable, transparent and effective risk management systems and processes.
