Enterprise risk management, or ERM, is evolving and the expectations for it are rapidly increasing. Traditional ERM frameworks with a narrow focus on “protecting” the enterprise and passive “heat map” risk reporting are not meeting organizations’ needs and expectations. Federal organizations want and need more from ERM. A forward thinking ERM framework is uniquely positioned to meet these evolving needs.

Cybersecurity and privacy risks continue to be among the top risks of concern at many federal agencies. Integrating conversations on cybersecurity and related risks to agency ERM programs is critical to ensuring that these risks are discussed alongside other enterprise risks. A virtual panel of IT and ERM practitioners discussed several methods to enable greater understanding of these topics across these areas of practice and to advance integration in your own agencies. Several of these methods will be further expanded on in a new chapter planned for the ERM Playbook Version 1.1.
