Do you proactively identify and manage evolving risks to protect your organization’s success from unforeseen threats? Are unmitigated risks jeopardizing its goals and objectives? Many organizations remain “old school” when it comes to risk management programs. They’ve not advanced their practices to effectively incorporate risk measures, key risk indicators, and incorporate methods to continuously assess the risk universe for new and evolving risks that may present unique challenges. This four-hour seminar is designed to educate and advise participants on the revolutionary changes impacting risk management and how executives advance the risk management cause with their boards and management.

Schneider Downs’ Risk Advisory Services Practice is excited to offer this interactive educational event that will focus on a host of risk management issues.

This course is designed for those in the position of CAE, CFO, CLO/General Counsel, CSO, CIO, CRO, loss prevention and third-party risk managers.
