Four Approaches to Enterprise Risk Management and Opportunities in Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance

Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) does not have to be a resource intensive exercise! This is one of the key findings in this new book that gives valuable perspective on what ERM is and is not, as well as practical examples of how to go about it in a variety of organizations.

The book began with research into how organizations can expand compliance with the U.S. Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 into an ERM program, but the result will be useful for anyone interested in ERM. Readers who want to transition from Sarbanes-Oxley compliance to ERM will see that many of the commonly held beliefs about how to do this do not hold up under investigation.

The author explains why this is so and clarifies the real opportunities in Sarbanes-Oxley compliance. The book also describes the way in which conceptual frameworks like COSO s are and are not useful.

The book includes:

  • Myths and Realities based on the author s assumptions and the realities he found.
  • The Real ERM Opportunities in Sarbanes-Oxley Compliance and the right way to use an ERM framework.
  • Most importantly, four Case Studies which include techniques, insights, and lessons learned that will help any reader interested in moving toward ERM.

They were selected specifically to illustrate the variety of approaches that can be used for ERM. Readers will gain valuable perspectives and a number of specific ideas to apply, whether they are transitioning from the Sarbanes-Oxley compliance project or just want to make enterprise-wide risk management a way of life in their organizations.
