This week I faced the ultimate personal test of my risk management skills, where I had to soul search “do I practice what I preach as an ERM expert.”. Sunday, the night before the storm of the century Hurricane Sandy hit, I had tickets to fly to Texas as a speaker and expert on ERM. What would become of my home and family? Had I applied the same risk principles in my work as a CEO of the leading enterprise risk management software company in my personal life? Had I done put a personal business c

But now the reality of these decisions is catching up and trading institutions are finding that the fastest is not always the strongest – much like the hare and the tortoise.

Effective governance requires changes in the way risks are managed across "stove-pipes" or "business silos". More often than not, when loss events occur it becomes clear after the fact that different silos were holding onto different pieces of the risk puzzle but no one could put the pieces together. So the problem is how to identify risk

Many risk managers are so bogged down by loss event capture and incident management, that being able to focus on preventing loss events and identifying emergi

Taxonomy structures and preserves the integrity of information, so as changes occur in multiple parts of the organization, managers can compare risks on an 'apples to apples' basis and connect the dots between business areas. It is the critical foundation of your ERM program and any enterprise risk managemen

Risk taxonomy is the framework of naming, organization and managing the relationships to manage your risk information. Your ERM program and any Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) software you use depends upon it.

Most organizations have an organizational chart of how their people are connected. To be effective in risk management, organizations must also have an organizational chart of how their business processes are connected to create accountability and focus on business value.
