Enterprise Risk Management – Accountability Framework

In recent years, external factors have fueled a heightened interest by organizations in ERM. Industry and government regulatory bodies, as well as investors, have begun to scrutinize companies’ risk-management policies and procedures. By identifying and proactively addressing risks and opportunities, business enterprises protect and create value for their stakeholders, including owners, employees, customers, regulators, and society overall. The purpose of this course is to help CPAs and other finance professionals develop an understanding of enterprise risk and the critical success factors to thoughtfully address such risks. The course will explore strategic, operational, financial and legal risks, not just from a perspective of “what might go wrong” – but from the view of “what must go right.”
