New risks are arising from technological change, political uncertainty, cyber crime and increasing drivers of intangible value. It is mandatory for organizations to be proactive in anticipating and managing risks. This approach requires organizations to build a risk awareness and management culture putting increased emphasis on compliance and governance.
