The reason for this update is the new book we will publish.

Indeed, the book deals with a number of ongoing issues such as climate change, cyber attacks, ethics, and sustainability. These require us to define a series of new key terms.

Why is updating the Risk Management glossary so important?

We think that if we want to move forward and create value while reducing exposures, we need to properly identify and quantify probabilities of occurrence and consequences of mishaps in our complex, interdependent systems.

Indeed, we have seen more than our share of misunderstanding and squandering of resources because decision makers did not really understand each other.

Risk communication has to be crystal clear and honest and that is only possible if we minimize linguistic difficulties.

We have built our practice and reputation by supporting industries decision making in presence of uncertainty. This is particularly important if events can diverge. Divergence happens with climate change, geopolitical issues, cyber attacks, social platforms evolution.

In the future we will see more and more divergent exposures and it will be paramount to have risk management approaches that can cope with divergence. That is only possible if key terms and general glossary are clearly defined.
