In today's global business environment, risk management must be aligned to business strategy. As companies continue to shift their business models, strategies change and risk management becomes even more important. A company must find the right balance between risk resiliency and risk agility. The chief risk officer (CRO) role is an important catalyst to make that happen, so a company's long term strategic objectives may be realized. The CRO Certificate Program is developed and delivered by Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College of Information Systems and Public Policy, and the CERT Division of the Software Engineering Institute (SEI). In this podcast, Summer Fowler and Ari Lightman discuss the evolving role of the chief risk officer and a Chief Risk Officer Program.
