Enterprise risk management

Enterprise risk management

What is enterprise risk management?

Enterprise Risk Management manages the overall risks of an organisation in aggregate rather than independently. It not only deals with problems to be mitigated but it is a potential source of value creation.

The risk management function covers :

  1. Organisational set up for Risk Management with procedures, controls and risk reporting structures
  2. Comprehensive risk measurement approach – risk metrics with KRAs & KPIs

Policies consistent with the broader business strategies, risk appetite and operational matters

  1. Strong consistent reporting, monitoring and controlling risks;
  2. Periodical review and evaluation.


ERM framework should enable forward-looking strategic risk insights to track mitigation plans and effectiveness. It requires setting limits, analysis of data, and working on the probability of occurrence to get a quantified score viz-a-viz the threshold limits. That is where quantitative key risk indicators (KRIs) come into play. Key Risk Indicators are like an early warning system for an Organisation. For each top risk, quantitative KRIs are defined to help anticipate when a risk might occur. Risk owners will be able to determine when and how to escalate risks for corrective discussions and actions. KRIs serves as the triggers to support actionable risk monitoring.

Risk identification & control(RCSA) is key to resilience. Resilient organizations use insights from advanced technology to respond proactively to potential risks and reduce their impact well in time. A framework to systematically collect and capture information about Incident & operational losses (including potential ones) will help to facilitate the identification of risk trends, risk escalation and wider organisational learning from an Enterprise Risk Management perspective.

A comprehensive, data-driven approach to risk performance tracking helps companies identify potential areas for cost savings and overall performance improvement. A prioritized set of Key Risk indicators help to establish risk thresholds and connect with the risk appetite levels adopted by the organisation across the various risk types in a methodical, data-driven, standardised manner. Thus a robust ERM eventually serves as a tool for taking action toward mitigation. Such a quantifiable ERM framework has a holistic approach to Risk Control than just being a qualitative tool for reporting.
