Enterprise risk management

Boosting your corporate immune system.

Risk is real, and although it can hinder growth and potentially be a source of demise, it can also drive growth and value creation for a company.

In helping businesses understand and increase their ability to successfully manage risks, PwC helps them establish the confidence in their ability to seek out and take those risks; risks that generate the greatest opportunities for their business.

What does risk mean for your company? Do your current risk management efforts reflect the true risks to the business? Do they help you leverage real opportunities that are in front of your organisation?

PwC's ERM framework

Our ERM framework is made up of a series of building blocks that can be organized into flexible combinations to provide the right solution for your ERM program. Each building block comprises a number of components and elements that when combined, make up the foundation for your ERM program.
