Analysis of Risk Management Authorities

Corporate governance involves an organization’s conduct regarding its stakeholders. There are a number of external and internal Risk Management authorities ranging from national government regulations like Sarbanes-Oxley, to Special District RM authorities which generally deal with insurance, to corporate Risk Managers.

On the international front, the Council of Europe has 47 member states and a Risk Management authority. One of its purposes is to promote evidence-based risk assessment and management practices concerning “dangerous offenders”.

Part 1

Based on your reading, research, and lecture notes develop a 6 to 10 slide PowerPoint presentation on Risk Management authorities. The PowerPoint should include a combination of graphics, tables, and charts. The use of bullets in the slides should be limited.

  • Intro – 1 slide
  • RM authorities – comparisons and differences – 4 to 6 slides
  • Conclusion – 1 slide

Part 2

Also prepare a 1-2 page Word document as a summary that expands on the slides and any other talking points. In a business setting this would be a handout to the staff members present.Be sure to cover the following points:

  • Who, if anybody, should be in charge of an organization’s conduct?
  • Who, if anybody, should be in charge of regulating ethical standards?
  • Who, if anybody, should watch over the regulators?
