Risk Management has emerged as one of the most critical components of a modern firm’s business infrastructure. In fact, it is one of the major issues auditors & senior business leaders face. Some believe that methodologies developed as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley are sufficient enough to mitigate risk, while others are not so sure. How will you determine if the methods used by your company are effective or not? Listen to experts as they explain the practical guidelines for effective risk management in your business.
