12 top enterprise risk management trends in 2023

Enterprise risk management has taken center stage as organizations grapple with the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, the threat of a recession and the rapid pace of change.

Executives recognize that stronger ERM programs are required to remain competitive in this new era. One aspect of the current risk landscape that companies must contend with is the connectivity of risks.

Businesses are increasingly more interconnected to partners, vendors and suppliers across global markets. As a result, the impact, for example, of a local natural disaster, the ongoing war in the Ukraine or high interest rates can cascade across an entire global supply chain.

Here are 12 security and risk management trends that are reshaping the risk landscape and influencing business continuity planning.
