Enterprise Risk Management - Connecting the Dots

Connecting the dots (in this case, the risks).

It has been a bit of a journey over the last 15 years. At Protecht, we started with the vision of a SaaS enterprise risk management solution that allowed connection of risk to the core components of what was back then, considered an ERM framework. This meant that our central library of risks was not only used in the risk and control assessments but also linked to key risk indicators, attestations and incidents. This enabled our client base to get a more fluid picture of risk and was the genesis of the RiskInMotion™ concept.
 

What was missing back then was the business intelligence engine to bring it all together.

The Experience of Having a Risk Management System

A REAL LIFE APPROACH

Risk management is a continuous journey. In our personal lives we instinctively make risk based decisions according to our own risk appetite. As we move from our teenage years to adulthood to middle age to our senior years, our internal risk management evolves and matures. The same applies with the organisations we work within. Their external and internal context evolves, their risk management matures and evolves to meet the challenges of the changing environment.

This week’s blog is an interview with Michael Blacker, Chief Risk Officer at Police Bank. In this interesting conversation, he shares his experiences and challenges with the evolution of risk management at Police Bank and explains how Protecht.ERM is being used to embed risk management throughout the organisation. We hope that you enjoy the interview.

10 Great Features of Protecht Enterprise Risk Management Software

Having an (ERM) has become a MUST

Enterprise Risk Management has become a must for all organisations, regardless of size, complexity and industry sector. Companies are asked by regulators, shareholders and other stakeholders to demonstrate that the organisation has risk-management policies and procedures implemented and embedded.

In a previous post, we mentioned that embedding enterprise risk management techniques into business decision-making processes, can and will drive improved business performance, not just risk mitigation.
