What's the Future of Corporate Risk Management?

Mr. Ed Catmull, the President of Pixar Animation and Disney Animation, rightly said, "It is not the manager's job to prevent risks.?It is the manager's job to make the risks safe enough to take them on." 

Technology isn't the only important aspect of corporate risk management anymore. The development of multi-national companies with numerous domestic and foreign locations has given rise to a modern and multifaceted form of corporate risk management. It has become the need of the hour for all companies – small, medium and large. 

Mapping the Right Way Forward 

The corporate risk management roles and services of tomorrow should also be notable for other expertise and capabilities, including manufacturing processes, production facilities, intellectual properties and supply chains. A sound corporate risk management plan requires regular risk and vulnerability analyses, as the threats keep evolving over time. A lot has changed in the landscape of corporate risk management and more changes are in queue. Let us understand them in detail below.  

The future of corporate risk management has the following five goals that will be considered for developing roadmaps: 

  1. Establish an Adaptive Framework for Risk Governance  

An adaptive corporate risk management framework requires modifications to the conventional models of risk assessment. The frontline corporate risk management professionals measure the need to manage individual consumer experience and long-term consumer journeys to form a complete, end-to-end prospect for both financial and non-financial threats.  

Corporate risk management and compliance roles need to get integrated with business objectives and operations to match the product and services innovations. At the same time, it enables handling and supervising real-time threats, automated business models and major third-party collaborations. Corporate risk management professionals, based on an adaptive risk governance framework, offer insights and prospects that help monitor the overall efficacy of business.  

  1. Confirm the Right Skill Sets Needed in Your Team 

There will always be a need for the right skillsets and abilities – all three types, 'functional,' 'personal' and 'knowledge based.' For example, organizations may need professionals who can be creative to address several corporate risk management areas such as compliance regulations, operative risks and resilience strategies. Similarly, the organization also needs professionals with expertise for different corporate risk management categories such as cloud servers, cyber and blockchain. Receiving the right knowledge at the right time for particular changes would help to recognize current and evolving threats. 

  1. Execute Product and Service Management 

Achieving the goals of real-time product creation with an integrated corporate risk management control system allows businesses to provide a robust infrastructure. This infrastructure monitors real-time consumer activities and executes programmed product and service processes with a set of risk rules to change product functionality instantaneously (e.g., price or terms). 

Corporate risk management teams should work together with the business operation teams for the initial product designs to find a thorough set of consumer traits and activities that are associated with the main risk concerns. This step is required in situations of a quick launch, scaling and managing new projects, and risk-notified products and services. 

  1. Improve Considerations of Resiliency 

Resilience, data protection and privacy are important factors to fulfil the service needs of the consumers and to secure the company's reputation and personal properties. Resilience should be embedded in the extended organization, even in third-party and fourth-party vendor activities, including the essential vendors. Corporate risk management teams should perform simulations for a range of disruption and emergencies because preparedness is the key to gain stability.  

  1. Utilize Data Intelligence and Architecture 

Corporate risk management functions include a robust structural framework that interacts with a broader environment of compliance regulations and risks. The aim is to allow more efficient use of data and streamline business procedures when it comes to corporate risk management. The utilization of AI systems, software and data intelligence platforms can enable automatic corporate risk management and data models for improved market intelligence and decision-making.
