Risk and the Boardroom Agenda

A new paper from Marsh explores the ‘unprecedented risk management challenges’ that organizations face today and proposes strategies for managing these risks.

The premise of the paper is that effective risk management within an organization today may be more difficult than ever before because, as risks become more complex, they have also become more interconnected.

While there are several emerging risks that boards of directors need to take into account, the areas of immediate focus should include:
* Political risk and the role of emerging economies;
* Supply chain risk and business resiliency;
* Capital investment and project-related risk;
* Cyber risk; and
* Compliance and regulatory risk.

These risks are likely to form the heart of the risk management challenges facing boards in 2011-2012.
