2011 Global Risk Study Debrief

Organizations are adapting to an increasingly complex global environment with more holistic approaches to business resilience planning. Traditional business continuity plans (typically with a strong IT focus) are still critical, but they are becoming part of a bigger picture, as senior executives strengthen their oversight of enterprise-wide risk management. To ensure business resilience, companies are moving toward a risk management process that both addresses the myriad types of risk that functions across the organization face, and encompasses all facets of risk management, from its identification through to mitigation.

Mr. Yip will review key findings of the study and discuss their impact to Business Resiliency in Canada.
