5 Top Enterprise Risk Management Trends We’re Tracking in 2024

Enterprise Risk Management from the 30,000-Foot View
Business continuity, risk mitigation, and enterprise risk management processes might not be sexy terms, but they all work together and play an outsized role in business success.
Before we dig into the trends shaping 2024, here’s a 30,000-foot view of Enterprise Risk Management and what it does. For starters, ERM solutions are gaining ground as people understand their vital role in risk management and protection. Global News Wire reports that the enterprise risk management market size is expected to surge from $10.58 billion in 2023 to $11.89 billion in 2024, boasting in impressive CAGR of 12.5%. Risk management has pretty much never been more important than it is today for a variety of reasons. These include the incredibly rapid pace of globalization, the pervasive use of digital technology, and the ever-increasing savviness of threat actors, all of which mean that new risks are emerging daily.
Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a top-down methodology that looks at risk management strategically from the perspective of the entire firm or organization. Enterprise Risk Management is intended to help companies identify, assess, and prepare for potential losses, dangers, hazards, and other potential for harm that may interfere with an organization’s operations and objectives and/or lead to losses. In short, enterprise risk management is all about being proactive rather than reactive when it comes to risk identification and mitigation.
Enterprise Risk Management can deliver some big benefits, including, but not at all limited to the following:
- Enhanced risk awareness
- Increased stakeholder confidence
- Improved decision-making
- More efficient use of resources
- Improved business continuity
- And more effective coordination of compliance and regulatory concerns
