The UK Corporate Governance Code (previously the Combined Code on Corporate Governance) requires that a board of directors maintain a sound system of internal control. This principle includes, at a minimum, an annual review of all material controls and risk management systems. The purpose of this book is to create a detailed and practical guide to the actual mechanics of implementing such a risk management system.

As a result of the economic crisis, the areas of corporate governance in general and enterprise risk management in particular have been receiving increased attention from their various stakeholders. Senior management, non-executive directors, internal auditors and even shareholders have been required to review, re-assess, and frequently re-design existing practices and procedures in their organisations with a view to avoiding a repeat of past mistakes.

This book provides a practical, hands-on guide to management, non-executive directors, etc., on how to design, implement and maintain a robust enterprise risk management process throughout their organisations, whether large multinationals or small single site businesses. It also suggests specific real-life responses to risk topics such as disaster recovery and fraud risks.
