THE ENTERPRISE RISK MANAGEMENT (ERM) SEMINAR – REORDING
Theme: Transformational risk management practices for professionals
Date: 21st -22nd OCTOBER 2021
Enterprise risk management (ERM) is the process of planning, organizing, leading, and controlling the activities of an organization to minimize the effects of risk on an organization’s capital and earnings. Enterprise risk management includes financial, strategic, and operational risks, in addition to risks associated with accidental losses.
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 and in an increasing number of industries, boards of directors are required to review and report on the adequacy of risk-management processes in the organizations they administer.
The fundamental elements of ERM are the assessment of significant risks and the implementation of suitable risk responses. Risk responses include acceptance or tolerance of a risk; avoidance or termination of a risk; risk transfer or sharing via insurance, a joint venture or other arrangement; and reduction or mitigation of risk via internal control procedures or other risk prevention activities. Other important ERM concepts include the risk philosophy or risk strategy, risk culture and risk appetite. These are expressions of the attitude to risk in the organization, and of the amount of risk that the organization is willing to take. These are important elements of governance responsibility.
Understanding the risk appetite concept and the risk quantification will aid in objective measurement of risk and lead to an improvement in the risk culture of the organization. The ERM Master class will shed light on the ERM process as well as the critical skills and enablers towards successful risk appetite formulation and entrenchment by the organization after complete articulation and approval by the Board.
The role of different players in ERM is also a critical aspect and the master class will provide an avenue for discussants to debate on the most appropriate placement level of the ERM Staff ad their reporting lines. Management responsibilities involving the risk universe and architecture or infrastructure, documentation of procedures or risk management protocols, training, monitoring, and reporting on risks and risk management activities will also be discussed in the master class.
This seminar is intended to provide professionals with critical knowledge and insights that will enable them to specialize in their risk review and advisory roles. It will also be a good opportunity for delegates to build their professional skills and network with other like-minded professionals in the same field.
