Business success depends on avoiding risks. Otherwise, your business’s bottom line will suffer. That’s why you need enterprise risk management (ERM)! ERM refers to how you identify and eliminate internal and external threats from impacting your business operations. Fundamentally, a risk management strategy means reducing or mitigating risks.
Reducing risks is easier said than done because the internal business environment is always changing. In addition to the internal threats, you must assess the external macroeconomic factors, including inflationary pressures, supply chain bottlenecks, and legislative obstacles. Therefore, you must continually assess internal and external threats to manage risk effectively.
In this article, I’ll define ERM frameworks and how to use them to manage risk. Additionally, you’ll learn about the top software you can use to implement ERM.
