Risk Management is the process of measuring, or assessing risk and developing strategies to manage it. Strategies include transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effect of the risk, and accepting some or all of the consequences of a particular risk. Traditional risk management focuses on risks stemming from physical or legal causes.
Uncertain times and a volatile economic climate have contributed to an expanding focus on corporate governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) across all industries. As global mandates and compliance directives continue to snowball, organizations are faced with an imminent need to adopt a programmatic approach and tightly integrate risk management initiatives with ongoing business processes. Business intelligence and reporting also provide a powerful mechanism for gaining a deep understanding of key factors that impact corporate performance.
