Alignment on risk management is dangerously askew

  • United States Image

Nov 15, 2019

On November 15, 2019, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) released a blog on how boards are under increasing pressure from investors, regulators, and the general public to adapt to and better manage the factors that influence how organizations are created, grow, and succeed—and to do so with transparency and accountability. This requires unparalleled collaboration and harmony of purpose among those charged with risk management.

But findings from a new Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) report paint a troubling picture that is anything but harmonious. Worse yet, the report’s key findings suggest that boards generally have an overly optimistic—and potentially dangerously skewed—view of how risks are managed.

Review the full blog on the NACD's website.
