For many organizations Risk Management is rapidly developing into a more forward-looking, enterprise-wide approach.
The high level of uncertainty and the reduced tolerance to systemic impacts is leading several organizations to achieve a more formal and effective risk management approach.
As organizations increase their focus on being proactive and desire a more aggressive risk mitigation discipline, the burden of identifying, cataloging, mitigating and managing risk is becoming cumbersome.
