Most corporate risk management systems are designed for day-to-day managers, and not for the very different needs of board members. And despite being the company’s ultimate fiduciary, boards have very poor tools for monitoring and managing risk, or even knowing how well the management is handling their task. That’s why they are too often the last to learn about a fraud, a company scandal, a data breach, a lawsuit, or a strategic failure. The past decade has seen too many of the world's boards taken by surprise (or even shocked) by company risks and exposures. So how do you create risk oversight tools that a board can use for getting quick, timely information?
Join corporate governance expert Ralph Ward for training on the best tools you’ll need to shape your company’s board into a powerful and effective body. Learn what boards really need to know about risks facing the company, and how staff can make this information usable for the board. Discover the surprising risk areas directors may not be monitoring yet. Learn how to best structure risk oversight into board agendas, and understand the board’s role in defining a company’s risk appetite.
Find out what should be on any board’s risk monitoring dashboard, and what questions you should be asking to get quick, timely oversight – instead of being the last to learn about a fraud, scandal, data breach, lawsuit or strategic failure.
After attending this webinar, you’ll know how to effectively monitor and manage the risks facing your company. You’ll be armed with the tools and the knowledge to become a world-class director. Plus, you’ll be confident in your ability to shape your board into a powerful, professional fiduciary.
