In risk management, like driving, the safest way forward is to keep your eyes on the road ahead. Every now and again, however, it’s a good idea to check your mirrors. That’s the premise behind the latest issue of PreView, Protiviti’s ongoing series on emerging risks. In the first ever “look-back” edition, Protiviti revisits some of the risks highlighted since early 2014.
A little background: PreView
is a “big picture” publication that focuses on macro-level emerging risks, classified according to the World Economic Forum’s five global risk categories—economic, technological, environmental, societal and geopolitical. The risks we revisited include: municipal financial instability, big data, mobile banking and social media lending.
