Reduce overall enterprise risk, improve resiliency to risk events, and meet government reporting requirements


Chief financial officers and chief risk officers understand the value of identifying, assessing, managing and optimizing business risks. These leaders need to take a holistic approach that integrates business risk management and performance management, including compliance where required, as part of the overall business strategy and execution. Trends in globalization, new regulations, shorter response times and increased business complexity have brought the importance of risk to the forefront, placing an additional burden on the already busy finance agenda and on senior risk management executives.

IBM risk management services are designed to help organizations evolve from basic compliance and ad-hoc responses, to optimized business risk management, in which the value of risk management far outweighs the costs. IBM enables organizations to reduce overall enterprise risk, improve resiliency to risk events, and meet government reporting requirements. Our services include:
