How to advance risk oversight

In this webcast, panelists highlight results from the recent EY global risk survey and provide ways to better execute risk oversight in this uncertain environment.

We asked 500 global board members and CEOs about today’s top risks and what resources they need to better execute risk oversight. While we received their feedback prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the responses summarized in our Global Board Risk survey: Four ways to advance risk oversight reinforce the importance of having a robust enterprise risk management program and well-honed crisis management plans.

Join the EY Center for Board Matters for another episode in our webcast series Better Questions for Boards, which is designed to provide directors with insights and questions to consider as they engage with management on a variety of complex boardroom issues.

Boards are increasingly responsible for overseeing an expanded range of issues that are now an inescapable part of their environment. Their duty should be to remain vigilant, increase their own fluency around emerging risks and external trends, and continually challenge and strengthen their oversight practices to enhance the organization’s agility and ability to survive and thrive in the long term.

Our panelists will draw on the insights from the survey and provide perspectives and strategies to aid boards in areas such as:

  • Addressing today’s top threats and aligning on the top risks by analyzing megatrends and incorporating outside data
  • Seeking improved management of emerging risks and more sophisticated crisis planning to help turn risk into opportunity
  • Requesting risk reporting that reflects the new risk landscape, including improved reporting on emerging risks and more predictive insights
  • Enhancing board effectiveness and providing leading practices to advance risk oversight

Our webcast will be 90 minutes and presented in an audio-only format. The panel, moderated by Steve Klemash, EY Americas Leader of the EY Center for Board Matters, includes:

  • Amy Brachio, EY Global Advisory Risk and Performance Improvement Leader, Ernst & Young LLP
  • Bob Nardelli, Former Chairman and CEO, Chrysler Corporation and The Home Depot; former CEO, GE Power Systems and GE Transportations Systems; board member, BWX Technologies, Inc.
  • Mark A. Weinberger, Former Global Chairman and CEO, Ernst & Young Global Ltd.; board member, Johnson & Johnson, MetLife Inc., Saudi Aramco
