Welcome to ERM 2011

Time waits for no man, woman…or corporate! Climate change, information technology, capital requirements, regulations and consumer expectations…the landscape is changing and changing fast.

On 20 September 2011 the Institute hosted ERM 2011 - the third annual seminar on Enterprise Risk Management. Consistent with past seminars, the focus of the seminar was on the practical application of ERM principles including the opportunities ERM presents to business and its growing importance in managing business risk. With a long list of CEOs, CROs, CFOs and Appointed Actuaries as past attendees, the seminar has become an important forum for networking and debate on Enterprise Risk Management.

This year’s theme was 100 kph through the Minefield. Whether we like it or not, we will all have to deal with a range of new challenges arising from a rapidly changing environment. ERM 2011 provided the opportunity to look over the rough terrain ahead, and develop survival strategies.

Professor Ross Garnaut, the government’s advisor on climate change, presented the keynote address on managing uncertainty. Hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis - how can we prepare? Each disaster has the potential to create cascading crises - for example, an earthquake in Japan could possibly result in a nuclear power plant spreading radiation halfway around the world.

We will also looked at technological change - recently there has been an increased awareness of threats to data confidentiality - but the internet can also provide opportunities as well as risks. An introduction to ‘Complexity Science - a new approach to ERM' was also be included plus major ratings agency standard & Poor's provided a different perspective.
