Department of Homeland Security Selects Active Risk Manager

Washington, DC, December 02, 2011 --( Risk/Issue/Opportunity (RIO) processes to be supported by Active Risk Manager enterprise risk management software from Active Risk.

Active Risk, author of award winning Enterprise Risk Management software, Active Risk Manager (ARM), announced today that the US Government, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has chosen ARM for risk/issue/opportunity (RIO) management across its contractors and federal staff.

The Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection – Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition (DHS – CBP/OTIA) is replacing existing risk management systems with ARM to gain the benefits of its extensive risk and opportunity management capabilities.

Loren Padelford, Senior Vice President of Active Risk Group and Chairman of the Americas’ Board commented, “The Federal Government has a responsibility and duty to understand and manage risks to a very high level and nowhere is that more critical than the DHS. Senior administrators need the most comprehensive risk information possible to ensure the safety of the public. DHS decision makers will have the best risk and opportunity information to make the most informed decisions possible due to ARM’s unique ability to identify, manage and mitigate risks across an entire department and contractor base. We welcome DHS to the ARM user community which already includes the likes of United States Air Force, US Department of Energy, NASA and many others.”

Active Risk Manager enables the identification, communication, analysis and mitigation of risks and opportunities within a single system. ARM addresses enterprise-wide risk management (ERM), project risk and governance, risk and compliance (GRC) requirements.
