Managing Political Risks

The recent turmoil in the Middle East, the tsunami in Japan, and the unfolding political regime in Greece provide recent examples of how political risks are at the forefront of management’s attention for organizations with operations around the globe. As companies try to tap into the market prospects of doing business around the world, they are finding that countries with the most enticing opportunities often are in some of the most politically risky environments. The June 2011 issue of CFO Magazine analyzes how organizations are realizing the need to think more robustly about how shifts in political risks may affect the risk profiles of their global operations. Read more

 

Raising Awareness about Cybersecurity Risks

With growing frequency, the business press is reporting security breaches at highly reputable organizations whereby sophisticated cybercriminals gain access to highly sensitive information. Valuable corporate information assets, in addition to personal or financial information of customers and employees, can be exposed. As a result, organizations are making cybersecurity risk a top-priority of their enterprise risk analysis given the numerous risk issues that cybersecurity breaches create for organizations who experience an intrusion event. A recent white paper, issued by the law firm of Sidley Austin LLP, provides a number of issues to be considered by senior executives as they evaluate cyber risk exposures. Read more 

Evaluating Supply Chain Risk
While the push towards increased outsourcing and just-in-time methods of managing a supply chain can create cost reductions, it can also potentially increase risk exposures that may be well beyond an organization’s risk appetite when significant disruptions strike. Recent events, such as the Japanese tsunami, are revealing significant risk threats that exist along the supply chain of many organizations. A recent CFO Magazine article emphasizes the importance of spending time to thoroughly analyze vulnerabilities along an organization’s supply chain to develop plans of response when major disruptions arise. Read more

Assessing Effectiveness of ERM Programs
In light of some of the recent failures of financial services and other companies around the globe, the growing political unrest in foreign governments, and massive natural disasters, one of the greatest risks an organization faces is the lack of an effective ERM program. As boards continue to increase their expectations for management to design and implement effective enterprise-wide risk management programs, they have an increasing need for objective assessments of the effectiveness of those programs. The June 2011 cover story article in Internal Auditor highlights the role internal audit can provide in conducting those assessments for the board. Read more

Webinar on Strategic Risk Oversight
Our ERM Initiative Director, Mark Beasley, was the keynote speaker for a June 8, 2011 webinar titled, “Strategic Risk Oversight,” hosted by Compliance360. Beasley shared insights about the current state of enterprise risk oversight and how organizations are striving to more effectively embed their risk oversight processes in the context of the organization’s strategy. He highlighted the need for effective key risk indicators to help executives more proactively monitor their most significant strategic risks to keep their strategy efforts on track. Listen to the webinar (free of charge)

Risks Associated with Climate Change and Sustainability

The growing focus on climate change and issues related to sustainability are creating opportunities and risks for organizations. Some organizations are viewing issues associated with sustainability as an opportunity to market or brand themselves as a good corporate citizen as it relates to the environment. Others are looking at climate change and sustainability as a source of potential risks that may threaten the organization’s business model for the future. A recent Ernst & Young thought paper analyzes how climate change and sustainability may interact with strategic, compliance, financial, reputational, and operational risks. Read more

ERM in the News

 

Volume 4, No. 8

June 10, 2011

 

The Enterprise Risk Management Initiative (ERM Initiative) at North Carolina State University's Poole College of Management is sending you this brief e-mail newsletter to highlight the following recent ERM-related news:

 

1. World Economic Forum Launches Risk Response Network

2. Homeland Security Risk Management Fundamentals

3. Exceeding Expectations of the Board: Boosting Internal Audit’s Role in Risk Oversight

4. Embracing Enterprise Risk Assessments to Enhance Impact of Internal Audit

5. The Five-Course Meal of Enterprise Risk Management

6. Pay Attention to Low Probability Scenarios

 

See the following for additional information:

 

World Economic Forum Launches Risk Response Network

The World Economic Forum has launched its Risk Response Network that will help facilitate the oversight and response to complex and interconnected global risks. The Forum’s permanent staff assigned to the Risk Response Network will help provide a global focus on the array of risks arising from economic inequalities, failed governance systems, natural disasters, cybersecurity, and resource scarcity to strengthen global leaders in their ability to more proactively oversee and respond to these, and other, complex risks. Read about the Network and watch the video emphasizing need for global risk focus.

Homeland Security Risk Management Fundamentals
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) plays a critical role in leading a unified effort in the management of the diverse and complex set of risks facing the United States. To strengthen capabilities in fulfilling its mission, DHS has created a Risk Management Fundamentals to provide a structured approach for the distribution and use of risk information and analysis efforts across the Department. The publication lists key principles, discusses approaches, and explains the process of effective risk management intended for DHS organizations and personnel to adopt. Read more

Exceeding Expectations of the Board: Boosting Internal Audit’s Role in Risk Oversight
New risks and opportunities will continue to evolve for organizations as they continue to experience significant change and expansion. Boards, in particular the audit committee, will continually need to evaluate the adequacy of management’s ability to manage top risk exposures, including whether internal audit is proactively identifying and assessing management’s oversight of emerging risks. A recent Deloitte Audit Committee Brief notes that internal audit needs to embrace a heightened focus on risk management activities and governance and they need to expand their role from primarily auditing, operational, and regulatory risks to also encompass a focus on strategic and emerging risks. Read more

Embracing Enterprise Risk Assessments to Enhance Impact of Internal Audit
While management holds primary responsibility for enterprise risk assessment, a recent Journal of Accountancy article emphasizes that internal audit can enhance its role in organizations by engaging more in enterprise risk management oversight. The article highlights tips on how to improve an organization’s internal audit function, based on an interview with Protiviti’s executive vice president and head of global internal audit. The suggestions include conducting risk assessments, identifying emerging risks, evaluating IT security and privacy, and developing and distributing talent, among many others. Read article

The Five-Course Meal of Enterprise Risk Management
Enterprise Risk Management projects can be intimidating and difficult to manage due to the large time and effort involved. An article published by Property Casualty 360 asserts that breaking down ERM projects into multiple courses is the best way to tackle the daunting task. The courses include developing a project plan, identifying risks, assessing risks using metrics, risk reporting and monitoring, setting effective controls, and utilizing strategic analysis. Read article

Pay Attention to Low Probability Scenarios
Low probability disaster scenarios tend to be overlooked by organizations, but they deserve more attention and planning, according to management expert Stuart Greenbaum at the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis. An effective Enterprise Risk Management program should consider all inherent risks and potential disasters to protect the organization from additional direct and indirect costs, and reduce the probability and impact from catastrophic events. While an effective ERM program couldn’t prevent natural disasters, such as the recent tsunami in Japan, it provides a disciplined structure that encourages business leaders to more robustly consider the impact of low-probability events to their operations.
