SAP RISK MANAGEMENT

Case study Exxaro Resources South African diversified mining company Exxaro Resources was seeking integrated enterprise and operational risk management to ensure a uniform and effective risk culture in the organization. This desired change in culture included a shift in focus from a “check the box” and compliancerelated exercise to real risk mitigation, which would allow the organization to achieve its strategic objectives. By using SAP Risk Management, Exxaro was able to establish this desired risk culture, highlighting relevant and new topics from the operational level all the way up to the board level. Items previously

overlooked are now discussed with a focus on what responses are needed to mitigate significant risks. Exxaro now audits differently, with a more refined risk-based approach linking key controls and compliance initiatives as part of the overall response.
