T101: ERM in Practice: Balancing Decisions with Risks in Mind
Enterprise risk management (ERM) aims to identify, assess, and prepare organizations for potential losses, dangers, hazards, and other potentials for harm that may interfere with an organization's ability to achieve its objectives. Panelists will share how they successfully leverage ERM mitigation and tools to address operational, financial, programmatic, compliance, and many other types of risks. These tools and strategies enable them to increase the likelihood of meeting organizational objectives by helping leadership make risk-informed decisions.

T102: The Rise of Supply Chain Risk Management and Importance of Integration with ERM

Due to increasing vulnerabilities and an evolving risk landscape, Supply Chain Risk Management (SCRM) has emerged as a focal point for risk functions. Agencies are faced with a diverse set of vulnerabilities such as risks related to vendor/supplier management, digital supply chain, supplier access security, product security, and software. This session will provide perspectives on recent trends and emerging third-party risks, define elements of a successful SCRM Program and identify ways to successfully integrate SCRM with Enterprise Risk Management.

T103: Value of ERM: Balancing Results, Resources, Risks
No organization exists simply to manage risk. To fully achieve the potential of ERM, it must be integrated into the delivery of overall stakeholder value through the balancing with objectives sought and resources available. We will discuss how this broader organizational value conversation will increase relevance of ERM to members of the enterprise.
