Establishing an Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Framework

The following is a guest blog post is from RiskArticles.com.

Enterprise risk management (ERM) is an ongoing process designed to manage all risks within a firm. The Commission of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) defines ERM: 

“Enterprise risk management is a process, effected by an entity’s board of directors, management and other personnel, applied in strategy setting and across the enterprise, designed to identify potential events that may affect the entity, and manage risk to be within its risk appetite, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of entity objectives.”

It is important to establish an ERM Framework because it enables a firm to gain a clear view of its overall risk level. Discussed below are the steps that need to be taken to establish an ERM Framework, the potential benefits that can be expected, and the challenges that may be faced.

The One Crucial Component Risk Managers Need to Know

This is a guest post written by Carol Williams, founder and principal consultant of ERM Insights by Carol. Carol helps mid-sized organizations prioritize resources to focus on the biggest threats and opportunities.

All successful endeavours that stand the test of time look at the big picture. History is replete with examples. If Henry Ford did not think about the big picture of mobility and production, would the iconic brand still be around today?

The same principle is true for initiatives within an organization – if you do not consider the big picture of how it will deliver value and achieve long-term goals, the effort has a higher risk of stagnation and even failure.

8 Risk Management Points Every Broker Should Know

Mid-market is the most profitable and coveted segment, and therefore the most fiercely competed over. Medium-sized companies have the same problems as Fortune 500 companies, just on a smaller scale.

The problem lies in risk solutions; these solutions don't scale and small companies are unsure of where they can turn for help. As a result, medium-sized businesses do not benefit fully from risk management.Insurance brokers deal with these companies every day, sharing advice on one important aspect of risk: their insurance.

Brokers specialize in helping these same companies use broader risk management resources, tools, and services. If the brokers do not provide risk management services, others will: accountants, lawyers, and OHS and WCC consultants. Insurance brokers should talk to their clients and prospects about risk management in a way they understand.
