Ground-breaking survey into the future of risk management launches Risk Agenda 2025 project


Maidenhead, UK. 4 May 2017 – Sword Active Risk, a supplier of specialist risk management software and services, is a key supporter of the newly launched Risk Agenda 2025 project from the Institute of Risk Management (IRM). The project is launched with a survey into the future of risk management, and will continue with a series of interviews, roadshows and online debates. The initial findings of the survey, Perspectives on the Future of Risk, will be presented during the Active Risk Manager Global Conference, at the Dorchester Hotel, London, on 22 June 2017.


The purpose of the Risk Agenda 2025 is to stimulate debate within the risk community by examining how enterprise risk management might be delivered in 2025 and by then proposing different ways that the risk management profession might prepare itself for the possible future scenarios.


Keith Ricketts, VP Marketing at Sword Active Risk said; “In the past ten years we have seen both the risk landscape and expectations faced by risk departments change beyond recognition. The globalization of industry, widening communication networks and the rapid changes in technology and demographics have changed the nature of risks that organizations face, in number, complexity and the speed with which they arise.


“This ground-breaking initiative from the IRM will open up debate on what stakeholders, leaders and IRM members can expect from risk management in the future. The findings of this research will help us to shape the future of our profession.”


Clive Thompson, CFIRM, Project Director at Willis Towers Watson urged Institute members and others with an interest in the future of Risk Management to get involved by visiting the IRM website, and completing the  Risk Agenda 2025 survey. He continued; “The opinions and suggestions will feed into the conversation on the future direction of our industry and inform the IRM’s thinking and strategy in the years to come. We have worked with Sword Active Risk as our technology partner on this project and are grateful for their support.”
