Resilient Risk Management Approach to Achieve Strategic Goals  

The turbulence in today’s business landscape is unprecedented and organisations need to evolve to meet these business challenges. With high-impact events such as COVID-19, affecting all countries and across industries, traditional operating models have been called into question. Increased exposure and uncertainty mean organisations are facing evolving threats that are more interrelated and this requires a holistic and integrated approach. Risk ownership and management is no longer the sole responsibility of the risk department but a shared responsibility. But how can you get your entire organisation on board? 

Is your ERM framework up-to-date and robust enough to deal with emerging risks? 
How can you integrate risk management into your organisation’s strategic planning?   
Are you able to influence and embed risk awareness at all levels of your organisation?   

Enhance your Risk Management Practices to take on Tomorrow’s Risks  

Join this comprehensive 3-day virtual conference to be updated on the latest trends and industry best practices. Survey 2021’s risk landscape, from emerging technologies to market volatilities and hear critical regulatory developments.
