Financial Institutions provide great value to the American economy, but that value comes with risks. Strategic institutions do not strive to eliminate risk or even to minimize it - they strive to manage risk at the enterprise-wide level. These enterprises seek to manage risk exposure so that at any given time, they incur just enough of the right kind of risk - no more, no less - to effectively pursue their strategic goals. This is referred to as "Optimal Risk-Taking."

The presenter will share her experience in developing an enterprise-wide process to conduct risk assessments in a practical, sustainable, and easy way to understand. You will walk away with practical tools and examples you can implement in your organization immediately.
