Technological advancements. Disruptive innovations threatening core business models. Recurring natural disasters with catastrophic impact. Soaring equity markets. Turnover of leadership in key political positions. Potential changes in interest rates. Cyber breaches on a massive scale. Terrorism. Elections in Europe. Threats of nuclear engagement. The world is changing before our eyes, say board members and C-suite executives around the globe. Not long ago, regulatory scrutiny and economic conditions topped their list of risk issues. Today their chief issues include disruptive innovation, digitalization, organizational resistance to change, cyber threats and corporate culture.

Critical concerns abound for board members and C-suite executives, according to the annual Executive Perspectives on Top Risks Survey from North Carolina State University’s ERM Initiative and Protiviti. Expectations of key stakeholders regarding the need for greater transparency about the nature and magnitude of risks undertaken in executing an organization’s corporate strategy continue to be high.

Among the many highlights in this year’s results:.

  • Organizations have a greater focus on the risks associated with the rapid speed of disruptive innovations and dramatic changes that new technologies may have.
