As we enter the new year, it’s easy to feel there’s never been a time of greater uncertainty, change and volatility in the business world.
From the wars in Israel and Ukraine to the number of elections happening all over the world in 2024, it can feel like a rocky road ahead. This year is set to have the largest number of political elections in history.
Governments play a significant role in shaping the risk management landscape for businesses. For starters, they create and enforce regulations that dictate how businesses should operate. These regulations often include specific risk management requirements and standards.
With an earthquake hitting Japan already in January, it can also feel like there’s volatility in terms of natural events.
Risk management is crucial for identifying, assessing and mitigating potential risks that could affect your organisation’s objectives, projects or operations.
It involves several key steps, with the first stage identifying the risks that could impact your particular business. It’s vital to examine any internal and external factors that might lead to problems or uncertainties in the future.
To do this, New World Norm takes the time to develop a thorough understanding of your business, its goals, and its unique challenges.
The good news is this process is much easier than in the past.
Advancements in technology have significantly impacted risk management. You can now benefit from a range of tools like data analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to help in identifying patterns and predicting potential risks.
A risk assessment looks at the likelihood of each risk, and what type of impact it could have.
This can help you prioritise which risks require immediate attention and resources.
Our consultants can both deliver risk assessments and mitigate risks.
We can work with you to develop strategies that reduce, eliminate, or manage the identified risks. This might involve creating contingency plans, implementing security measures, diversifying investments or taking out insurance.
We can also continuously assess and review the effectiveness of risk management strategies. Risks can evolve, so it’s crucial to adapt and update approaches accordingly.
