IRM members work in many roles, in all industries and across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors around the world. Our qualifications cover Enterprise Risk Management, which is a much broader concept than financial or insurance risk. Because risk is inherent in everything we do, our members across the globe come from varied backgrounds like:
• Leadership
• Chief risk officers
• Business continuity experts
• Entrepreneurs
• Accountants
• Lawyers
• Family business owners
• Head of departments
Enterprise Risk Management is applicable across all sectors:
Consumer Durables
Real Estate
Across the globe, especially in developed economies, risk management has gained significant importance in how leaders run their businesses. Given the rise in business failures, evolving regulatory landscape and complex changes affecting businesses including unforeseen crisis like situations such as the COVID-19, organisations have started to realise the importance of risk and crisis management as a tool for enhanced strategic value for sustainable business growth.
Strategic Advisory Board
Our Strategic Advisory Board is a formally constituted group of independent leaders who provide high quality, objective advice for the development of a global risk community in India. It has been established to function as a think-tank for IRM and provide expertise to develop insights that drive impact.
