OnRisk Report 2021

In the 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic first shuttered the world, organizations have learned to embrace the unexpected. Board members, C-suite executives, and chief audit executives — the key players in risk management — now know that low likelihood/high impact risks must be given greater consideration. This realization has jolted boards into greater awareness of risk management weaknesses, energized senior management to build more nimble and resilient organizations, and positioned internal audit to deliver broader value.
