Managing Risk by Anticipating Multiple Risk Scenarios

July 14, 2009

Ridge Global CEO Tom Ridge spoke recently with the Journal of Accountancy to discuss how businesses can identify multi-layered risks in today’s highly risk-centric environment.

In the interview, Ridge, the first Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and former Governor of Pennsylvania, addressed the need to look for hidden risks that can be discovered through careful scrutiny and crisis planning scenarios.

Said Ridge: “...I think in this environment, [in addition to] prioritizing existing risks and existing threats to your corporate profitability, your customer base, your brand, it’s probably not a bad idea to bring in some of your folks to help “red cell” what might be underneath the surface, what you really haven’t spent too much time thinking about and probably should.”
