Governance Institute of Australia Risk Management Survey 2020

The Risk Management Survey is now closed.

We asked you to rank some of the key risks that Australian organisations are facing in an increasingly uncertain world  from cyber-attacks to climate change.

This research aims to identify what the key pressure points are for governance and risk professionals in the Australian market, both now, and into the future.

Results from 2019

One of the key issues Governance Institute members continue to raise with us is how to tackle the emerging risks facing their organisations, especially those unique to Australia. This has been reflected in strong demand for our webinars, round-tables and training events focused on regulatory reform, artificial intelligence, climate change reporting and foreign interference.

The Governance Institute’s Risk Management Survey 2019 is a new research project  to attempt to identify these key pressure points. The survey saw 499 Australian risk managers and governance leaders provide their insights into the unique challenges facing their organisations, both now and into the future.

One answer was unanimously across all respondents, regardless of industry, organisation size and job title — find out which answer that was below.
