The importance of business continuity planning: Dealing with inevitable risk
The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel
Increased awareness of the need to prepare for risk and risk of disaster does not always translate into action. One of the reasons businesses choose not to become more actively involved in planning for increased preparedness is that they feel prior events are not likely to recur or that the effects if they were to occur would not be overly severe.

ERM: 5 steps to success
ebizQ
Most agree that working from the top down, meaning to first identify corporate objectives, then focus on the details of how to achieve them is what most managers wish they could be doing more of. However, the reality is most managers are so busy with day-to-day activities that little time is left over to work on the big picture. Everyone agrees the role of ERM is for risk management to be involved in the "key business decisions," however, some misinterpret this as interviewing only the senior executives in "big picture" assessments.

Sarbanes-Oxley can fix government
American Thinker
Recent events strongly indicate that our government is broken and the need for reform urgent. We should never find ourselves having to choose between malfeasance and incompetence, as we now do. The main problems are clearly size (it's too big) and governance (conflicts of interest are popping up everywhere).

Floods, cyclones ... business and governments must wake up to disaster
The Guardian
Companies will be looking increasingly at investment opportunities in Africa and Asia in coming decades as that is where growth is strong, but for most of them the risk of disasters is unlikely to be on the radar. Steps are being taken to try to change this mindset. In exploring investment opportunities, companies will look at political risk, access to natural resources and infrastructure. However, country briefings, analyst reports and business forecasts rarely mention disaster risk.

Study: Managing supply chain risk a challenge
Plant Engineering
Global manufacturers are putting their supply chains at the center of their business strategies to serve as the foundation for operational efficiency and collaborative innovation, according to KPMG's 4th annual Global Manufacturing Outlook. Ironically though, many manufacturing executives (49 percent globally; 54 percent U.S.) admit that their companies currently do not have visibility of their supply chain beyond Tier 1 suppliers. "Obtaining real-time visibility across all tiers in the supply chain can significantly increase speed to market, reduce capital expenditures and manage risk," said Jeff Dobbs, Global Sector Chair, Diversified Industrials and a partner with KPMG in the U.S.
