While some 59% of respondents said they believe that involving risk management experts is beneficial, more than half of those surveyed think that leaders in the field are very rarely active participants in such initiatives.

Respondents think that it is worthwhile integrating all risk functions, such as internal checkups, law, health, and security. The underlying reason is the spread of up-and-coming technologies such as AI and advanced analytics, which allow the risk functions to supply valuable information to decision-makers.

"Risk management cannot operate in an isolated fashion; experts in the field have all the tools, such as data-based simulations, to provide notable help to leaders in forecasting the consequences of their decisions," says Judit Bindics, EYʼs executive director of risk and public sector advisory. "Organizations will become capable of radical growth only after accepting that the new era brings such uncertainties that companies may only prepare for with the help of external resources."
