About the Book

This one-stop guide provides you with the tools and information you need to keep their twenty-first-century organizations as blissfully risk-free as possible.

Risk in business cannot be avoided--but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a better way to work through it. The problem is that most risk management strategies, books, and experts are based on outdated concepts, technologies, and markets. Since the 2008 financial crisis that set the baseline for the roller-coaster market we deal with today, combined with the constantly changing developments in technology and communications, modern-day risk management demands dealing with up-to-the-minute approaches for defending against threats.

Extensively updated, the second edition of Fundamentals of Enterprise Risk Management examines the latest technologies such as Riskonnect and High Tech Electronic Platform (HTEP), and helps you:

  • recognize both internal and external exposures,
  • understand crucial concepts such as risk mapping and risk identification,
  • and align risk opportunities with their organization's business model.

Packed with practical exercises and fresh case studies from organizations such as IBM, Microsoft, Apple, JPMorgan Chase, and Sony, this invaluable resource is key to assessing company risk, managing exposure, and seizing opportunities.
