A Fresh Approach To Risk Management

The 3 lines of Defence model is no more – abandoned by the IIA in July 2020. Is there a credible alternative?

Chris Burt, co-founder of the Risk Coalition, will discuss why a risk model designed to prevent recurrence of the failures in risk management, which took place prior to the GFC of 2007-8, has been in need of a major overhaul for many years. He will elaborate on an objective centric model to replace conventional risk management approaches.

Peter Neville Lewis will provide an overview of a proposed Integrated Assurance model, which links the reporting of the 3 Lines more closely, to present the Board with more holistic oversight of the risk/certainty of achieving strategic objectives and creating/preserving value.
