The Top Five Emerging Risks in 2013

Most companies have experienced (or will experience) significant financial damage in their lifetime due to an unforeseen risk event. Companies that fail to proactively identify and prepare for these risks can easily be caught off guard, often exacerbating the financial impact and lengthening the time required to address and mitigate the risk. As part of the quarterly surveys CEB conducts with risk officers at Fortune 500 companies and other organizations around the globe, we have identified the top five emerging risks companies are seeing today. Based on these findings, we are able to capture the impact a risk event has on traditional risk categories regularly tracked by companies, how these risks have changed over time and which risks will likely have greater impact in months to come.
