Risk Culture: How do we Measure and Manage it?

Regulators globally are placing more pressure on boards and their risk management teams to be fully engaged with establishing and maintaining a ‘sound risk culture’. According to the Financial Reporting Council (FRC), during 2015, there will be an extensive assessment of corporate culture, placing boards in charge of embedding a coherent culture within organisations. 

Developing an appropriate risk culture takes time. Directed activity in this area early on in the process will yield greater success in risk culture development, providing long-term benefits of an additional line of defence and greater engagement, embedding risk management beyond compliance. The workshops develop a balanced perspective on building risk cultures that are commercially valuable, sustainable and appropriate to meeting regulatory requirements. Additionally, cultural voids will be highlighted and techniques to build appropriate responses will be discussed.
