Effective Risk Management Planning and Claim Response to Natural Disasters

SPEAKER: Lisanne Sison, Managing Director, Enterprise Risk Management, Arthur J. Gallagher DESCRIPTION: A risk assessment is generally the initial focus of implementing an enterprise risk management (ERM) program, but one of the most common mistakes that organizations make is that they fail to move beyond the risk assessment. Though important, a risk assessment effort is only one part of a true ERM program. The most sustainable value actually comes from a shift in the culture of the organization with regards to how it considers, evaluates and acts on risks on an ongoing basis. The ISO 31000 Framework and Principles provide a roadmap on how to incorporate a more risk-aware approach into the daily operations of the organization, formalizing the relationship between effective risk identification and management and the creation and protection of organizational value.
