Risk management is well and truly in the spotlight in 2021. A never ending, unrelenting list of risks keep coming at boards including, inter alia, COVID-related business risks, third party vendor and supply chain risks, information security and cyber security – to name a few.

How do directors, executives, company secretaries and risk managers respond to these challenges and ensure that the risk management governance and oversight is fit for purpose?
