Webcast Summary

Companies are recognizing the need to rely on finance leaders to guide and adapt their risk management strategies, whether they concern computer chip security flaws to which nearly all businesses are vulnerable, the potential effects of tax legislation, or costs arising from extreme weather. The discipline that CFOs bring to planning and forecasting is particularly valuable as companies devote ever-increasing attention and resources to mitigating risk. Given their experience with applying automation in the realm of finance, CFOs can also take the lead in introducing best practices for automating how their companies measure and manage risk.

During this Webcast, we will discuss:

  • What finance leaders need to know about the latest developments in enterprise risk management,
  • What aspects of risk management companies are most likely to improve through automation,
  • The CFO’s role in establishing and employing a framework for managing risk, and
  • How to evaluate and bolster your company’s ability to identify and mitigate risk.
