Climate change as real business risk
GreenBiz
While the national debates surrounding fossil-fuel divestment and the Keystone XL pipeline earn the most attention in columns and talk shows these day, the deeper underlying desire among many shareholders is for the United States to become serious about the real risks of climate change. And to do something about it — or, at least, to form a consensus on the policy and economic strategies needed to primarily reduce atmospheric carbon.

4 risks when employees bring their own devices to work
Inc.
What your employees do with their smartphones on — or off — the clock is their own business, right? Not quite. In the bring-your-own-device era, the moment an employee uses a personal device to do any work — whether to read a text from the boss or check a competitor's website — the company can be liable for any laws broken using the device.

FMLA and ADA intersection dangerous for employers
Human Resource Executive Online
In the recent past, there has been an uptick in EEOC charges related to the interplay between the Family and Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. For employers, say legal experts, those numbers can mean only one thing: Unwanted litigation. Yet, while the reasons for the increase in those FMLA/ADA-related cases may not be controllable by employers, there are steps they can take to help avoid being on the wrong end of an EEOC lawsuit.

Virtual desktops help put employees at the heart of business continuity plans
Continuity Central
If a disaster or an unexpected event takes place, people’s lives are affected in a number of different ways and it can take time to adapt and get things up and back to normal. For businesses looking to get up and running as soon as possible this presents a real challenge, especially if the buildings and office parks — the heart of employment — have been damaged or made inaccessible. If employees can't get to their offices — how will organizations ensure the day-to-day running of their business? How will companies ensure that they are not losing money through missed opportunities and low productivity?

Protect your company from cyberattacks
Smart Business Network
Many businesses neglect cyber and privacy issues because they simply don't believe they are at risk or they do not fully understand the exposure. "The majority of them think they're safe because they have a secured firewall in place and virus protection. This is the biggest misconception out there. In reality, data thieves are simply looking for the path of least resistance. Owners of small to midsize businesses who become complacent or think they have adequate protection against cyber and privacy attacks can actually be a bigger target than large companies," says Derek M. Hoch, president of Leverity Insurance Group.

Supply chain risk management important to business success
The Strategic Sourceror

Businesses use strategies such as outsourcing, supplier consolidation and low cost sourcing to improve efficiency, but these practices can add risk and a supply chain is only as strong as its weakest link, Supply Management stated. Risk analysis in strategic sourcing is crucial, and failure to identify and minimize risks can lead to profit loss.

GRC vs. ERM software: Which adds more value?
ebizQ
Businesses began with Enterprise Risk Management from the dawn of civilization. The first businesses were small and therefore one person knew all their customers, suppliers and processes. They knew all the risks within their business how they were connected to affect their business goals, which made it easy to manage both the upside and downside "impact of uncertainty on objectives." However, as the size of organizations grew in the industrial age, everyone became a specialist and groups of specialists were organized into departments.
