While Sarbanes-Oxley shook up the world of publicly traded companies and forced them to scramble to achieve compliance, it also played a pivotal role in bringing enterprise risk management (ERM) to the attention of corporate executives. Enterprise risk management, for many companies, has emerged as a value-added continuation of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance and audit efforts. Seventy-six percent of respondents in a recent survey said they either intended to expand SOX compliance into ERM or were in a stage of implementation.1 With the growing interest in ERM that has emerged in recent years, it has not just been seen as an initiative but a key component of corporate strategy. The strategic importance of ERM is mentioned in the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO) ERM integrated framework definition, which states: "Enterprise risk management is a process, affected by an entity's board of directors, management and other personnel, applied in strategy setting and across the enterprise, designed to identify potential events that may affect the entity. . . to provide reasonable assurance regarding the achievement of entity objectives." This definition describes ERM as a part of corporate strategy that is influenced by organizational leadership and put in motion to guide the achievement of organizational goals.

The buzz is building over the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 31000 Risk Management - Principles and Guidelines on Implementation. After years of hashing things over, the final standard is expected soon (the ISO website shows a release date of June 30, 2009). The reason a lot of people are excited about ISO 31000 is that it brings together a global consensus on risk management condensed into about 20 pages of information. All forms of risks such as financial, security, safety, health, and environment are included. "Not pursuing an opportunity" is also a risk. According to the standard, risk is not always negative, but simply viewed as the "effect of uncertainty on achievement of objectives." Risk management process

Risk Management is the process of measuring, or assessing risk and developing strategies to manage it. Strategies include transferring the risk to another party, avoiding the risk, reducing the negative effect of the risk, and accepting some or all of the consequences of a particular risk. Traditional risk management focuses on risks stemming from physical or legal causes. Financial risk management, on the other hand, focuses on risks that can be managed using traded financial instruments. Regardless of the type of risk management, all large corporations have risk management teams and small groups and corporations practice informal, if not formal, risk management. An ideal risk management starts with establishing the context, inclusive of the identity and objectives of stakeholders, the basis upon which risks will be evaluated and defining a framework for the process, and agenda for identification and analysis. The next step in the process is to identify potential risks-events that, when triggered, cause problems.
