Best Practices for the New Risk Environment
The global pandemic has accelerated the revolution in our business environment, with technology and increased use of social media driving dramatic change and greater risk in business models, customer behavior, employee work environments, and job duties. Disruptive technology is advancing in ways that allow predators to steal, control, or use company assets, while making privacy increasingly difficult to protect. In changing times like these, it is easy to lose alignment with emerging risks and have a false sense of security with our existing controls.
This book is written for board members, senior management teams and practitioners who strive for excellence in corporate governance. It offers specific, practical solutions for managing risks and aligning controls in today's chaotic business environment, including:
- Best practices in corporate governance;
- Emerging risks and your enterprise risk management program response;
- Fraud exposure and your fraud risk assessment scorecard;
- Internal controls and implementing effective monitoring;
- Process improvement and transformation to remain relevant.
As change will continue at an alarmingly fast pace, this book will prepare you to ask the right questions of your employees and effectively inform your company stakeholders about risk and control.
