Political unrest, economic turmoil, the pace of technological change, and cyber-threats are just a few of the risks causing major disruptions to business models and business plans today. In this eBook, produced by Compliance Week in partnership with Workiva, we explore some of the most significant enterprise-risk management (ERM) challenges facing companies today and best practices being employed to tame those risks.

Additionally, this eBook explores two new benchmark reports assessing how adept companies are at predicting and responding to disruptions in comparison to their peers. Additionally, we examine a newly revised ERM framework released by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), giving organizations a new tool to consider in building out their ERM approaches.

Beyond ERM, this eBook also takes an in-depth look at some big developments in the world of accounting, including a new hedge accounting standard from the Financial Accounting Standards Board that brings with it some good news. Additionally, we explore a new benchmark report that surveyed audit and finance leaders to better understand what effect the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) has had on global corporate ethical behavior and compliance. Finance executives and chief risk officers will not want to miss the wealth of information that’s in store for them.
