Risk Never Sleeps
Most have heard the expression “rust never sleeps”. That expression highlights the fact that the oxidation of metal, the process which ultimately creates rust, continues to take place day after day, day or night, whether we are there watching it happen or not. Risk within an organization is much the same way in that it is dynamic and continuously changing. It doesn’t wait for us to “finish this project” or “return from vacation”. In most companies risk is all around us, taking many shapes and forms, and emanating from a multitude of sources.
