Enterprise risk management overview

Enterprise risk management (ERM) is a plan-based business strategy. It helps organizations manage risks that impact their strategic objectives. ERM can focus solely on evaluating the negative impact of your organization's exposure to risk. But, it can also identify potential opportunities.

Challenges and opportunities

ERM programs enable organizations to balance risks and opportunities. They can help organizations improve business performance and more economically achieve strategic objectives.

However, implementing an ERM program requires intimate knowledge about an organization. Further, risk management teams need to establish an ERM framework. This includes creating a comprehensive risk inventory and supporting a consistent risk taxonomy to define and rank risks.
