Corporate Governance Risk Management Program Overview

Programs are designed to interoperate and coordinate activities across multiple front-line operational processes within a company, adhering to risk-based standards. The purpose is to prioritize and uncover business insights, engage key stakeholders, to systematically gather data to ensure that operations align with the organization’s strategic goals, and to enable evidence for risk assurance by front-line operational business managers to be provided to leadership. These standards are embedded within a risk management system, enabling the program to provide comprehensive oversight. This structured approach helps ensure compliance and enhances operational efficiency, fulfilling the board of directors’ fiduciary duties regarding risk management. The aggregated information from these processes is then presented to the board, auditors, and regulators, providing assurance that risks are managed within the board’s defined tolerances for misstatements, inefficiencies, and errors.

About the Risk Maturity Model (RMM):

Since its establishment in November 2006, the Risk Maturity Model has been utilized globally by over 3,000 organizations. Chief Risk Officers and their teams leverage this framework to align with industry best practices across seven attributes, 25 success factors, and 71 competency drivers. The model facilitates the engagement of risk management champions across various business levels and silos, helping teams build consensus for setting achievable quarterly milestones and effectively communicating with their board, risk committee, rating agencies, executive management, regulators, auditors, and other stakeholders. Research shows that companies with mature ERM programs, as assessed by this model, typically realize a 25% higher market value.
