The importance of risk management has increased in recent years as numerous accounting scandals, financial crises, and billion-dollar frauds have caused investors and organizations to lose large amounts of wealth. While practitioners, academia, and regulators have sought to define risk and develop a framework for analyzing it, an understandable, transparent approach has largely eluded directors and executives. Enterprise Risk Management and COSO introduces a holistic risk assessment methodology, building upon the original COSO framework and COSO's subsequent enterprise risk management publication. This methodology allows managers and risk assessment practitioners to accurately measure the levels of enterprise risk.
