Gartner's 2012 survey of 171 risk professionals found risk management remains an emerging discipline to manage the handling and treatment of identified risks to an enterprise. A successful risk management strategy will improve corporate performance and business decision making.
Key findings include:
- Risk management is a well-understood concept, but it is still emerging as a formal discipline.
- A balance is required between the need to protect the organization and the need to run the business.
- Balance can only be attained with transparent consideration of risk and conscious decision making about what will and will not be done to address risk.
