Take smarter risks to drive business growth

In times of uncertainty, it’s understandable that legal teams resort to offering risk-averse guidance. However, this is often too conservative, leading to companies being more than twice as likely to see delays when pursuing growth opportunities — or avoiding them entirely. Developed from a survey of over 200 organizations, our insight shows that the best legal teams develop “risk-advising know-how” — a transferable set of knowledge and skills that enables them to offer guidance that’s aligned to risks and business objectives. 

Manage third-party risks: Why thinking small is the solution

Third-party risk has been identified as a top threat by twice as many compliance leaders this year. As these relationships become increasingly complex, the need for the wider business to play a greater role is critical — however, 40% of companies lack any clear responsibilities for functional partners. Although most companies focus on large-scale governance or technology solutions to tackle the problem, our latest research reveals that smaller changes in ownership and cross-functional strategies are significantly more effective at identifying and remediating risks. Identify the five key process changes that can help your team to maximize third-party risk outcomes.
