Enterprise Risk Management (Exclusive for DBP Employees)



Program Overview:

The turmoil in the world is continuing – with increasing public unrest, fluctuating oil prices, natural disasters of a scale thought unimaginable, volatile stock markets, conflicts, a pandemic and climate change

In this time of global uncertainty how do you steer a course through these difficult times as a financial institution or a service-oriented organization?

Many organizations have realized that an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) approach designed around the organizations business portfolio, strategies and plans are needed to predict, evaluate, manage and measure its performances.

This has ensured that risks that were previously managed in isolation can be aggregated and prioritized across the entire business as a single dashboard that aligns to the business goals and strategies.

In this session, we are no longer just focusing on the ERM framework and its program implementation but more on the effectiveness and its alignment to the organizations Vision, Mission, Values and Objectives and key results.

It goes one step further. Risks are evaluated based on business materiality. A new understanding of the risks then emerges, and efficient controls can be implemented to tackle what really matters to the business. In short, the focus becomes strategic value creation instead of risk management & avoidance.
