As the role of the finance team continues to evolve from reporting on previous financial results to defining the outcomes an organization aims to achieve, and strategies to do so, the role of the finance leader is growing to encompass responsibility for managing an organization’s overall risk.
During this Webcast, we will reveal the findings of Dun & Bradstreet’s 2018 survey on how finance leaders are applying technology and data to their organizations’ risk management efforts.
Among the implications of the survey we will discuss are:
- Why finance leaders perceive that their own challenges of managing, monitoring, and anticipating risk are themselves key areas of risk for their organizations,
- How long-entrenched data silos exacerbate risk, and how a finance leader can establish a culture of collaboration to provide an entire organization with the information it needs to evaluate risk, and
- What technological advances CFOs should know about, as well as what sources of external data about economic and geopolitical developments finance leaders should factor in, to inform their organizations’ decisions about how to manage risk.
