Risk management, along with security, is almost always ranked as one of the top concerns for financial institutions. Risk management speakers at conferences around the world are speaking about the necessity for more proactive risk assessment approaches, particularly as many institutions are facing a thinning out of information technology (IT) resources. Risk management speakers have also pointed out that because security threats are becoming more evolved, it is important for financial institutions to be able to embrace change sooner rather than later.

Risk management speakers often point out the many flaws established financial institutions make that younger, more streamlined financial companies can avoid. For instance, many risk management speakers find that older institutions tend to take a more reactive, defensive position with regards to internal security threats. Conversely, risk managements speakers are quick to point out that younger companies usually have pre-planned risk assessment activities in their business plans.

Prevention and Responding to Threats

Risk management speakers appearing at forums and conventions often point to the fact that changing markets and technology are evolving at such a rate that it is challenging for larger companies to react to. Smaller companies, risk managements speakers will tell you, are usually able to adapt more quickly. That being said, risk management speakers are also quick to point out that companies don't need to limit the amount of risk they take on, but simply need to prepare solid assessment and monitoring systems before taking on new risk.

To assure that financial companies of all sizes do not inhibit their growth potential, risk management speakers remind CFOs, bank owners and other high-level financial management to evaluate each prospect thoroughly. Risk management speakers focus on prevention and detection of threats. Many risk management speakers say that every company can benefit from a simple system that is designed to evaluate each prospect in terms of prevention and detection.
