There has been much evolution in terms of ERM best practices, experience, and standards and regulation over the past decade. Enterprise Risk Management: Today’s Leading Research and Best Practices for Tomorrow’s Executives, Second Edition is the revised and updated essential guide to the now immensely popular topic of enterprise risk management (ERM). With contributions from leading academics and practitioners, this book offers insights into what practitioners are doing and what the future holds. You’ll discover how you can implement best practices, improve ERM tools and techniques, and even learn to teach ERM. Retaining the holistic approach to ERM that made the first edition such a success, this new edition adds coverage of new topics including cybersecurity risk, ERM in government, foreign exchange risk, risk appetite, innovation risk, outsourcing risk, scenario planning, climate change risk, and much more. In addition, the new edition includes important updates and enhancements to topics covered in the first edition; so much of it has been revised and enhanced that it is essentially an entirely new book.

Enterprise Risk Management introduces you to the concepts and techniques that allow you to identify risks and prioritize the appropriate responses. This invaluable guide offers a broad overview, covering key issues while focusing on the principles that drive effective decision making and determine business success. This comprehensive resource also provides a thorough introduction to ERM as it relates to credit, market, and operational risk, as well as the evolving requirements of the board of directors’ role in overseeing ERM.
