Earlier this year, Protiviti and North Carolina State University’s Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) Initiative published Executive Perspectives on Top Risks for 2016, the results of an annual survey. Regulatory changes topped the list of executives’ and directors’ concerns for the fourth consecutive year, followed by economic concerns and worries about cyber threats. Operational risks dominated, overall, accounting for five of the top 10 risks.
The online Q&A dialogue was robust. This article continues the discussion here, responding to those questions not addressed during the webinar. Topics include: operational risks are trending higher than strategic risks, concern over economic risk, and an
uptick in the perceived global risk environment.
