Explore the guide

The risk committee resource guide for boards is designed to help organizations develop and strengthen their risk committees, and can also help boards improve risk governance and oversight even if a formal risk committee is not being established in the near future.

The guide includes tools and resources that allow readers to explore topics such as key considerations in forming a risk committee; the risk committee’s charter, composition, and responsibilities; and risk committee education and evaluation.

The risk expert role is somewhat analogous to the role of the financial expert required on the audit committee by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
