New KPMG Report: Calibrating strategy and risk: A board’s-eye view

 

Corporate boards are deepening their involvement in company strategy and refining their oversight of the critical risks facing the company, according to a recent global survey conducted by KPMG Audit Committee Institute amongst 1,000 respondents from 28 countries.

 

The survey responses from directors and senior executives suggest that while many boards are deepening their involvement in strategy and risk, significant challenges remain, including linking strategy and risk, and addressing growing cyber security risks.

 

We also conducted in-depth interviews with a number of seasoned audit committee chairs and business leaders on these issues for KPMG’s Global Boardroom Insights - Calibrating risk oversight, providing additional perspectives and insights.

 

We thank all participants who joined the Global Pulse ACI Survey 2015.

Drawing on insights from surveys and interactions with audit committees and business leaders over the past 12 months, the Audit Committee Institute has highlighted six items for audit committees to keep in mind as they consider and carry out their 2016 agendas.
