  • RIMS President's Corner: Empowering Strategic Decisions

    ​Just last week, I had the opportunity to join more than 300 risk management professionals at RIMS ERM Conference in Atlanta. This group of committed practitioners have been called on by their organizations to build a risk-aware culture, and enhance the business’ ability to achieve strategic objectives.

    The ERM programs that were shared were outstanding and highlighted the value that an ERM approach can add to the organization. Fourteen organizations were awarded for using RIMS Risk Maturity Model to reach a high-level of ERM maturity.

    Congratulations to Asia Cell, Argo Group, Centene Corporation, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Honeywell, International Air Transport Association, Intuit, Lego Systems A/S, Lockheed Martin, Michigan Professional Insurance Exchange, Ooredoo Oman, Peoples Bancorp Inc., Radian Group Inc. and Wataniya Mobile Palestine.

    The Society recognizes that more and more organizations are leaning on risk professionals to be strategic advisors and, in the past couple of weeks, has produced several new executive reports to help them be just that.

    At the ERM Conference, the Society launched two new reports Improving Strategic Risk Management Using Macro Risk Analysis and Bridging Strategy and Implementation with Strategic Risk Management.

    For risk professionals building their cyber risk strategy, we encourage them to check out RIMS 2016 Cyber Survey for benchmarking information. And, to give our membership a better perspective of the risk management landscape in Latin America, the Society teamed up with Marsh to develop the 2016 Risk Management in Latin America report. The full report is in Spanish and the Executive Summary is in English. The full Risk Management in Latin America report in English will be available later this month. All of RIMS reports are available in the RIMS Risk Knowledge library.

    Continuing our work to strengthen our global network, on December 13rd and 14th RIMS will host the second annual RIMS Risk Forum Middle East in Dubai. The Forum has an impressive lineup of speakers including risk management leaders from New York University Abu Dhabi, Kuwait Petroleum Corporation, the Dubai Centre of Risk Management, Kerzer International, among others. For details about RIMS Risk Forum Middle East or to register, visit www.rims.org/RiskForum/Dubai16.

    Here in North America, specifically the United States, we are embarking on one of the most intriguing presidential elections of our time – two candidates with two polar opposite visions for the future of the country. We invite risk professionals to join RIMS for a special webcast on November 17th that will discuss the results of the 2016 United States Presidential and Congressional elections and how, based upon the outcome, practitioners may be affected.

    The webcast – Policy Issues in 2017: What the Election Means for Risk Managers – was developed by RIMS Government Affairs team and will be led by Seth Appleton, Chief of Staff for Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri, and Patricia A. Henry, the Global Government Affairs Officer for Chubb Group. To hear how the results of this U.S. election could impact your organization’s risk management strategies, practitioners can register here.

    Regardless of the practitioner’s experience level, their responsibilities within their organization, their geographic location or even their political leaders, RIMS stands ready to support all risk professionals’ understanding of the evolution of risk, enabling them to deliver valuable strategic direction to their organizations.

    Thank you for sharing your experiences with us and allowing RIMS to be the go-to source for all of your risk management needs.

    Sincerely,

    Julie Pemberton
    RIMS 2016 President
