Risk management is not a one-time or limited-time activity — it is a continuous process that must constantly operate properly. This is also why achieving ongoing progress in risk management can be so difficult for organizations - it needs year-round monitoring and dedication. 

The majority of organizations employ specialized risk management framework people, who serve as the business's sole line of defense against risks. This arrangement, we feel, is not sustainable. Any system that needs contin

The banking industry is perceived as the most advanced in their understanding and implementation of risk management. Although banks have indeed made huge progress in risk management, two areas all banks can improve is the structure used in conducting their assessments to enable actionable and insightful strategic reporting.
