Enterprise Risk Management

With you through changing times...

‘Risks are becoming more imminent’ - this was the warning set out in the Global Risk Report 2016 issued by the World Economic Forum. Existential threats confronting companies today are multiplying: new competitors, regulatory complexity, supply chain fragility and cyber-threats are to name a few.

PwC’s Enterprise Risk Management or ERM practice helps Boards, leadership teams and senior management in developing and deploying risk management programs equipped for handling business disruptions. ERM helps organisations manage risk from developing corporate strategy to aligning organisational culture to efficient execution. ERM provides tools and templates that can be applied consistently across the enterprise to enables a portfolio view of risks including their interdependence.

PwC globally has served as the principal authors of the COSO ERM Integrated Framework in 2004, which became the leading framework for delivering ERM. And now, PwC is leading the development of COSO’s revision in 2016: ERM Enterprise Risk Management – Aligning Risk with Strategy and Performance.

How PwC can help you

ERM Framework Design

We customise our in-house risk management maturity framework to your requirements based on industry regulations. We then measure your risk management program against this benchmarked framework. This framework is aligned to your governance obligations, thereby facilitating your company to demonstrate its ability in meeting regulatory obligations related to ERM.

ERM Maturity Assessment 

Using the deployed ERM framework, we assess your organisation’s current risk management program and develop tactical, practical and aspirational goals that your management can consider for improvement. We then organise the recommendations based on impact and level of effort and develop a recommended risk management program road map. The assessments can be performed by using our standard or industry standard frameworks (ISO or COSO) and can also be used as a health check for your existing ERM program.

ERM Automation 

We can assist you in automating your ERM program in the following manner:

  • Assessing the current risk management requirements and technology architecture to provide recommendations on ERM tools (RFP preparation, vendor evaluation and selection, ERM tool evaluation and selection).
