Member priorities we're working on

Based on specific member priorities, our network managers provide targeted support through bespoke collaboration opportunities. Below are a few examples of the challenges members are solving through the network.

How to bring geopolitical risk into risk assessments

How do you make geopolitical risk meaningful and relevant to the business, either through dashboarding or other methods?

Managing supplier risk

Given that third party risk can be very siloed within an organisation, focused on predominantly by procurement teams, how do you get everyone to use a cohesive supplier risk framework?

Aggregating asset risks

As part of an effort to integrate risk management into decision making and business planning, how are organisations aggregating risks across their asset portfolio and using this information to report to the board?

Engaging with the C-Suite outside of governance committees

As opposed to just presenting risk updates to senior leaders on a periodic basis, how can you engage with them outside of this window to drive a risk agenda?

Benchmarking fraud risk

What approaches are other companies taking to manage fraud-related risks, and how are they driving discussions about the potential threat landscape internally?

Approaching sustainability from a risk perspective

How does the risk management team maintain oversight of sustainability risks while meeting regulatory and social obligations?

Dashboards that provide insights and drive decisions

What’s more valuable: is it the visualisation of risk data, or verbal insights off the back of that data? Also, what are the challenges faced with drawing meaningful insights out of risk data?

Effective risk management for decarbonisation of operations

How are companies identifying risks associated with decarbonisation across their risk register and galvinising senior stakeholders to agree to a plan of action?

Presenting emerging risks to the board

How do other risk leaders handle their emerging risk reporting, in terms of the type of data they present and the level of granularity that they drill down into during conversations with senior leaders?

TCFD reporting processes

What does the TCFD reporting process need to look like to make it successful? For example, who should be involved, how can you effectively engage senior management, and what assurance needs to be provided over the data.

Determining whether to have risk appetite statements

Do any companies operate without risk appetite statements and, if so, how do they ensure the level of risk-taking within the business is commensurate with the risk appetite of the organisation and its senior leaders?

Practical implementation of scenario analysis

How do you run scenario planning exercises in practice as well as theory, making sure you prepare enough and pitch material to the business at the right level?

Data and AI usage in risk management

What are the optimal ways of leveraging analytics and AI to deliver better risk insights for the business?

Developing KRIs to embed risk appetite

How do you build on risk appetite statements by developing KRIs to bring them to life and how can you achieve senior leader engagement with these indicators?

Data security and cyber risks

How can risk teams produce a holistic report that clearly demonstrates the interconnectivity of these risks, tracks mitigation efforts and trends over time and aligns data sets?

Recent and upcoming meeting highlights

Our network meetings regularly bring groups together to share practical experiences and brainstorm new ideas, while bespoke meetings connect very small groups to focus on a specific issue or challenge.
