11:50 AM Understanding, developing and communicating risk appetite to create a risk culture

One of the main challenges which organisations are facing nowadays is developing the risk appetite and knowing how to enforce and implement it correctly. In addition, one of the first steps to establishing the importance of risk culture in the organisation is by having discussions between the board and the management about it, involving senior and middle management and making sure everybody understands it, while the management is the driver of the change.

Key question – How do you develop a risk appetite framework to align to your enterprise mission and goals?
  • Establishing a risk appetite scale to articulate the amount of risk your organisation is willing to take to achieve its goals
  • Settling a risk appetite statement to create risk intelligent decisions
