Deloitte’s 2019 Survey of Risk Management


Since the financial crisis, many organizations have—to varying degrees—upgraded and restruc-tured their risk management functions. Yet much work remains undone. To understand the progress made—and still to be made—Deloitte surveyed 100 executives with the title of chief risk officer (CRO) or equivalent, 100 C-suite executives not primarily responsible for risk, and 300 executives in risk-related functions such as IT and operational risk.

This sample was drawn from US companies with at least US$500 million in annual sales in a cross-section of industries. Survey questions aimed to illuminate executives’ views of risk management, current practices, organization of risk functions, key activities and capabilities, applications of tech-nology, and opportunities to add greater value.
