fastTrack – Risk maturity within a pandemic


10:00am - 11:00am

In collaboration with Airmic, this session will focus on how Enterprise Risk Management approaches can be improved from the immediate lessons learnt as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following will be used as a structure to the session:

- Ongoing risks vs. major shocks. Which will cover how to identify risks that have the potential to fall outside a curve of expected losses, how to decide if these have an influence on future viability and how risk financing can help to mitigate the risk.
- Rear-view mirror vs. scenario planning. How to ensure that risk assessments are forward looking (but remain informed by the past).
- Interconnectivity of key risks. How to visualise and structure risk information to assist forward looking risk assessments
