One of the key roles of the board of directors is the oversight of the management of risk. There are no businesses without risk, and so its management involves a continuous effort to identify and mitigate risk (where cost-effective to do so), and monitor both the mitigation progress as well as the identification of any new risks, which can emerge quickly, often alongside mergers and acquisitions, technological advances, product and market launches, etc. Boards have a responsibility not only to learn about the risks faced by the company, but to help ensure that management is effectively dealing with them.
Our panel of experts will discuss these and other topics related to oversight of risk management, such as what type of information about risk management should the board receive, and whether outside advisors can assist the board in discharging its responsibilities. Join us for a timely discussion on the board's role in oversight of risk management, and ways to better perform that role.
