Early identification of the onset of risks allows risk owners to take timely action to mitigate business vulnerabilities. When combined with assessment of the connectivity of risks, the process of early-stage risk screening (ERS), helps to develop a strategic and coordinated management response to business threats and for organizations to be first-movers on business opportunities – building business agility and resiliency and protecting stakeholders, performance and the planet.
