​Highlights of the 2017 COSO ERM Framework - Integrating Risk with Strategy and Performance

Thursday, January 25, 2017​


Historically, enterprise risk management (ERM) has been positioned as a support function tasked to define risks that could pose a threat to the organization. In many organizations, integration of the risk process within core business activities remains unachieved creating a culture where risk response and business activities do not align. Calls for integrating ERM into business activities have augmented in recent years and is one of the key topics discussed in a new ERM framework released by Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

Originally developed in 2004, the COSO ERM – Integrated Framework is one of the most widely recognized and applied risk management frameworks in the world. After a decade of experience with the Integrated Framework, COSO updated the framework to further address the alignment of risk, strategy and performance.

This session will provide insights, examples, and suggestions guided by the updated framework:

  • Drivers behind updating the framework
  • Key changes and updates to the framework
  • Framework changes in context of the business
