Overview

The rise in the volume and complexity of risks facing organizations—whether from insider threats, cyberattacks, shooters, or brand damage—requires more effective risk avoidance, risk mitigation, risk transfer, and asset (human and physical) protection.

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a structured, proven process for proactively identifying and evaluating how events and forces of change impact an organization and its strategy, and for developing measures for dealing with the risks that constantly threaten the achievement of an organization’s objectives. Enterprise risk managers provide the leadership, innovation, and management necessary to identify, evaluate, manage, and monitor an organization’s portfolio of risks.

Professionals who employ methods and practices to anticipate, identify, and optimize business risks and create plans to minimize them are part of a growing, specialized field. Enroll for the Exam NOW!
