What do cyber insurance buyers really want

Evolution of Cyber Risk Management Products and Buyers Of Cyber Insurance Buyers

Cyber towers have historically been purchased by large data holders such as FIs Healthcare Retailers and the Hospitality Industry. Today the threat landscape has changed as has our global reliance on technology.

2017 saw large BI losses emanating from cyber events in non traditional cyber classes such as manufacturing transportation and logistics. We have also witnessed the impact of physical losses stemming from cyber and tech. Thus there has been a marked shift in the demographics of cyber purchasers no longer is this a niche product rather a more holistic product designed for a digitally integrated world.

UK Economy Weak Start To 2018 Due To Weather Not Economic Climate

Latest Economic News For UK

UK economic growth 2018 started more slowly than end of 2017. The UK economy news is normally weaker at the beginning of the calendar year. Most of the UKs economic growth comes as the calendar year progresses.

UK economy news
Latest economic news for UK and global economy

Governor of the Bank of England Mr Carney

Mr Mark Carney the head of the Bank of England says poor UK economic activity at the beginning of the calendar year 2018 was due to the weather and not UK economic climate.

In addition Mr Carney reports that all slack in the UK economy has been taken up and this is likely to push up UK prices and UK inflation.

With very high levels of employment low levels of unemployment and a million plus job vacancies unfilled it is more likely that wages will increase faster. UK employers will need to pay more to attract candidates and to keep existing staff.

Jobs Trending Now

Mr Carney paints a rosier future for the UK economy in 2018 with downside risks including global international trade war. UK interest rates more likely to rise later this year and this should boost value of the UK pound.

Executives Behaving Badly

Corporate Misbehaviour Is A Misnomer

Corporate or enterprise entities do not make mistakes or create a bad business culture, executives do.   Illegal, unethical or bad business practices arise because that’s the way executives want a company to achieve corporate objectives.   Executives may or may not consider their business practices as bad or unethical, but the result is the same – corporate misbehaviour.

iso 31000 Enterprise Risk Management Framework Principles Best Practices

Understanding corporate misbehaviour

It may be a pointless waste of money undertaking a business health check if the executives are going to be unreceptive to the final risk management report, or simple pay lip-service to the outcomes.

Many CEOs know what game needs to be played with enterprise risk management ERM before they can return to their own agenda for the business.   Internal or external risk management audits can just play into the CEO’s attitude to risk management.   Such executives short-term philosophy seems to rely on the hope that the shit doesn’t hit the fan during their time as CEO and whatever happens after they move on is not a concern for some incumbent CEOs.

Much of executive misbehaviour, and therefore corporate misbehaviour, is a direct result of executive pay and associated benefits.   Misdirecting executive pay and rewards drives most if not all catastrophic corporate collapses.   Before the collapse poor executive pay and rewards strategies poison business innovation and employee motivation.

To anticipate which companies will survive sustainably you could look at how executives are rewarded.   It is the single biggest driver of corporate culture and long-term success, or not as the case maybe.

Executive managers cause corporate scandals, corporate scandals are not externally driven.   The proximate cause of the corporate scandal or collapse doesn’t start further down the organisation nor does it start from outside the company.   CEO bad behaviour is normally the proximate cost or the catalyst for corporate collapse.

Corporate Scandals

Corporate scandals aren’t a surprise to most executives, never mind the CEO.   They take the level of risk they think is required to achieve their business objectives.   They roll the dice and sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn’t.

For example, many in the banking and finance industry look upon the financial crisis as an external risk that impacted on their business strategy.   No, or little, blame can be placed at the bankers door!   It was all the other bankers and financers who were at fault for their share price collapse, mass redundancies and lost business opportunities – not their fault as their business was doing just fine until the financial crisis tsunami hit their business.

Such egotistical responses stem from either self preservation, or lack of care for their part in the near global systemic financial collapse of the banking and financial sector and the very near global anarchy which would have ensued.   Politicians, who were part of the problem, became part of the solution – make money as cheap as possible via low interest rates and massive almost unremitting quantitative easing QE.

Mothers forget how bad childbirth was

More than a decade after the start of the financial crisis there is still mass unemployment in the developed world and the developing world lost a decade of opportunity to crawl out of poverty.   However, the key decision-makers in the business world have either forgiven themselves or reinvented themselves in position of power.   In addition, a new raft of politicians are in place, or about to find positions of power, to facilitate the next financial crisis.

At its least useful, enterprise risk management ERM is a tool to spread the blame should the shit hit the fan, so one would have thought that ERM could be more popular than it is.   At its most useful it helps business leaders make business decisions that are more likely to be good ones for the long-term sustainability of the business for the benefit of all stakeholders in the business – including the CEO.

What makes your business stand out?

Our showcasing of your products or services will demonstrate why your competitors customers should buy from you. Pull in new customers to your business more profitably. Land more notice of what your business has to offer.

Do this differently

Formula 1 teams with smaller budgets have to fight for every last point by thinking and acting differently from their bigger competitors. You need to grab the attention of new customers in a different way from competitors unless you have unlimited advertising and marketing budget.

It is a challenge to capture more bang for your buck. BusinessRiskTV can help you attain more from every pound you spend.

What makes your business unique?

If your business is unique then great, but for many businesses this simply isn’t true. However if potential buyers don’t know what you’re offering then they will buy from your competitors instead. You’ve lost the sales not because your inferior but because you weren’t even in the running.

The most successful businesses are not necessarily the ones offering the best product or service, never mind a unique service. However there are innovative ways to make your business stand out from the crowd and gain a competitive advantage.

We can direct new customers towards your business products or services more profitably more sustainably for longer business growth with less uncertainty.

We fail and then we fail to learn!

The long list of failures to manage enterprise risks is too depressing to list here.   Such a waste of time, money and life!What an opportunity cost to corporate entities and society.

The only long lasting positive thing to come out of each major risk event or negative aggregation risk outcome is legislation

Our present crop of senior managers executives fund managers and politicians are not any worse or better than previous ones. Talking a good game about risk governance or compliance GRC is often followed by another failure to manage risks with all stakeholders in mind.

Eventually the general public start looking for heads to lop off and new legislation is written that can often be more risk-averse than it needed to be but The People got sick of the incompetence at the top and something had to be done.

Business leaders and politicians often moan about statutory legislation but if managers could manage risks better we wouldn’t need more legislation. Recent examples of major risk events or aggregation of regular failure to manage smaller risk events are more examples of our key risk decision makers failing and more legislation is required to fill the gap in risk management knowledge and/or failing corporate risk management culture.

22nd February 2018 Members of UK’s Parliament MPs Question Pensions Regulator In Public

The Pensions Regulator head with responsibility for monitoring pensions and protecting pensioners in UK admitted to MPs that the Pensions Regulator needed to be clearer quicker and tougher in using its powers to force companies to pay more into their pension schemes.

As an example of the Pensions Regulator’s failure one could highlight Carillion where many thousands of pensioners face reduced pensions. Carillions pension Trustees asked the Pension Regulator in 2010 and 2013 to force Carillion to put more money into it’s pension scheme. The Pension Regulator twice refused and the Pension Regulator CEO since 2015 admitted that it should have done more to extract higher pension contributions from Carillions executive management team.

Carillions executives have claimed that a failing Qatar contract was one of the main causes of Carillions collapse, but auditors KPMG say that was not a cause of Carillion’s collapse.

KPMG tried to defend their auditing of Carillion’s accounts in 2016 and 2017, but the business select committee chairperson said she would not hire you KPMG to audit the contents of my fridge.

Much criticism has been expressed about the system of corporate governance in UK’s biggest companies. Who is responsible for the loss of pension benefits for Carillion pensioners is not clear but what is clear that the current system of corporate governance and risk management is not working  for stakeholders like pensioners majority of employees contractors shareholders and corporate customers. The winners are winning big and the losers are losing big!

20th February 2018 UKs Pension Regulator Ignored Trustees Of Collapsed Outsourcing Firm Carillion

The pensions regulator twice ignored requests from trustees of Carillion to force the company to fill Carillion’s pension black hole.

The pensions regulator has come under fire from UK’s members of parliament for failing to take steps to protect Carillion’s pension scheme members, especially as they were asked twice by the trustees of the pension before Carillion collapsed. When Carillion collapsed, the firm had pension liabilities of around £3 billion.

With characteristic alacrity, the Pensions Regulator started its arduous process of chasing money down from Carillion a few days after it was formally announced there was no money left Frank Field chair of parliaments Work and Pensions Committee.

The Pension Regulator didn’t comment on the continued significant bonuses consistently awarded to Carillion executives or the dividends issued to shareholders with between £2-3 billion in underfunded pensions.

Carillion’s pension scheme now has to be transferred to the Pension Protection Fund which is likely to mean the loss of benefits for the majority of the 27,500 pension scheme members.

If the Pensions Regulator had conducted an Enterprise Risk Management Audit of Carillion they would clearly have identified that the black hole was not an unfortunate coincidence but a systemic failure of Carillion’s corporate governance and risk management culture.

How confident are you that you are managing enterprise risks cost effectively?

What are the hidden costs of your failure to manage risk properly

  • Missed opportunities cost
  • Over protection of business wasting resources and increasing your costs
  • Under protection leaving you exposed threatening your survival or prosperity and stopping you getting a quiet night’s sleep

Can you demonstrate to your business stakeholders that significant enterprise-wide risks are being effectively managed? Have you a balanced risk -reward risk management plan that prioritises the allocation of resources for best potential effect on business objectives? When was the last time you reviewed your enterprise risk management plan?

Controlling the risks in the workplace is not just about safety and business insurance. Your business must control enterprise wide risks. What is the aggregate effect of risk on your business objectives? Do you understand the threats to objectives and the opportunities you have in front of you?

Find out how enterprise risk management can help you monitor your overall business’s performance

Identify and manage both external risk drivers and internal risk drivers impacting on your business success.

Do you have confidence your business is ready for emerging risks?

We are only at the beginning of the 4th Industrial Revolution. Many jobs are going to disappear. Many jobs are going to change. Businesses that don’t change to reflect emerging risks will not survive the rapid changes that have started but will accelerate over next few years.

Maximising business opportunities for growth 

There is a yin and yang to all threats and opportunities.  

  • Every threat comes with an opportunity to change for the better.  
  • Every opportunity comes with a threat that the new will destroy existing value.

Business decision makers have tougher choices now than many recent business leaders have faced and many choices may threaten survival if you choose badly.   Making good choices could also drive your business forward much faster than recently possible due to the financial crisis of 2008 and recovery therefrom.

Have you identified and assessed your enterprise-wide risks?

What have you done about the more significant risks to your business objectives? Managing risk is increasingly central to the art of business management. It is not a science. What is right for one business may not work for another in the same industry. Much will depend on the leaders of each business within the same industry.

Give your managers more confidence in your company to prperly assessing all the signiciant business risks to your organisation.

There is a risk to every business decision you make. Systematically look at all the risks across your business to enable you to focus your limited resources on the options most likely to boost your business performance, productivity and profitability.

Armed with the right risk management tools and techniques, risk knowledge and business intelligence you can manage risk more cost effectively more successsfully.

Mindfulness

Mindfulness For Business Leaders

Leaders in business may benefit from learning more about mindfulness

Your not working alone!

Lloyds plc CEO is recently reported in Financial Times to have advocated the use of mindfulness for himself and his executives.

Prosperity Health Wisdom

 

 

 

The Job Can Kill You

Antonion Horta-Osorio was interviewed by Financial Times and he said the stress of the job nearly broke him within months of becoming the chief executive of Lloyds bank at perhaps one of the banks most risky times.   The bank had narrowly avoided total collapse and nearly half of it was taken into public ownership by the UK government.

The CEO had to seek psychological support and advice to prevent a possible nervous breakdown.   He realised he was not Superman and sought the guidance of a psychiatrist.   Prior to his near breakdown he hadn’t looked after his mental health enough.   He was speaking out to raise awareness of mental health problems at work.

From the CEO’s own experience he is now introducing a programme for his senior leadership team of 200 executives to make them aware of the measures the CEO learnt including mindfulness and psychological testing.   From these executives, it is hoped that the culture within Lloyds will change to prevent people further down the organisation quitting especially at a time where there is a skills shortage.

Not only could this improve the lives of all Lloyds staff, it could boost individual performance, retain staff and boost corporate performance.

Mindfulness Business Training For Executives

There is a business value for mindfulness.   Practicing mindfulness can help prepare you to become a more effective business leader for your own benefit and for the benefit of the enterprise.

  • Become more personally resilient so the business is more resilient
  • Reduce your own stress and the potential stress on the business should you not work productively, or at all
  • Increase your emotional involvement in life and the life of your business

Work with mindfulness techniques and tools to improve teamwork and business results from more coordinated risk management practices.   Develop your own mindfulness knowledge and increase the corporate mindfulness for a more resilient enterprise.   You might even become a better leader with mindfulness training and development.

Current global economy news articles and video content. Stress test the global economy with latest forecasts reports and global economic analysis.


13th November 2018 Global Growth Is Slowing

According to the International Monetary Fund IMF a number of the bigger economies are slowing and they could suddenly contract should there be a major risk event.

Key global growth risk factors include

  • USA China trade war could increase costs globally.
  • Higher energy costs. Oil prices have increased by more than 60 percent in two years.
  • Certain higher USA interest rates are on their way but how will this impact on global consumption?
  • Higher USA interest rates will strengthen the dollar the worlds currency of choice. How will a significant strengthening impact on global growth.
  • Parts of the world are still trying to recover from the global financial crisis including Italys banks and sovereign debt. A collapse of the banking system in Italy would reverberate around the world. Greece can be bailed out Italy can not.

The IMF forecasts global growth for 2018 to 2019 to remain at its 2017 level of 3.7 percent but the growth outlook for a number of major economies has been marked down.

17th April 2018 Global Economic Growth 3.5 Percent

Institute of International Finance IIF forecasting faster global economic growth. IIF increased global economic growth for 2018 to 3.5 percent. Much of the increase in growth down to USA tax cuts. These will not only power USA growth but global growth.

16th March 2018 Global Growth Strongest In 7 Years

According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD global economic growth is growing faster than at any other time in last 7 years. It is forecasting economic growth at 3.9 percent for 2018.

Threats to global economic growth include growing trade war between most other countries and USA as well as other geopolitical issues like Russia v EU / UK, North Korea and the ever present tensions in Middle East.

14th March 2018 A Credit Rating Agency Fitch Has Suggested Global Economic Growth Is Strong and Accelerating

Global economic growth is rising faster now than it has for around a decade.

Unemployment is falling, money is still cheap in most parts of the world and corporate investment is strong.

Fitch is forecasting global economic growth of 3.3 percent in 2018 and 3.2 percent in 2019. Last year it was 3.2 percent according to Fitch.

27th February 2018 You Should Be Optimistic About Your Future

Global growth prospects for 2018-19 are improving and accelerating. Most parts of the world are looking to a better 2018 than 2017 in terms of economic growth and 2017 was one of the best year’s for growth in close to a decade.

Not every business will take advantage of increasing global economic growth, just like not all businesses went bust during the financial crisis starting in 2007 to 2008. The rising tide of business opportunities creates the environment for your business to grow much faster in 2018.

Corporate business leaders in UK who look for new business development opportunities will find them.

If you do not think you have time to explore business growth opportunities, you may get the opportunity to reflect at your leisure after your business collapses.   Those companies that fail to grow may find they contract or even fail to survive.

7th February 2018 International Monetary Fund Chief Economist Says Global Economy Growing Faster

The IMF’s chief economist is reported as saying that world economic fundamentals are strong. There is increased trading and more business investment. As a result major economies are the world are growing faster than expected. He sees very broad-based global growth.

2nd February 2018 BusinessRiskTV Forecasts The Economic Forecasts Will Get Global Growth Wrong For 2018

Many economists are forecasting around the 4 percent mark for global economic growth in 2018. BusinessRiskTV forecasts this will underplay the global economic boom that is set to happen in 2018.

If a major global event occurs like World War 111 then growth will be slower but if World War 3 happens we will not care about economic forecasts any longer! Such geopolitical risk events aside we can look around the world and see great news unfolding:

  • America is feeding in huge corporate and personal tax cuts into its economy.   When America grows so does the rest of the world.   In addition, low unemployment and faster wage increases in USA will turbo-charge the USA economy in 2018.
  • Eurozone is experiencing is fastest growth period in around a decade and this will continue, but accelerate in 2018, as people find jobs and property values start to rise making people in the Eurozone feel wealthier.   Manufacturing is returning to countries in Eurozone that may have once have forgotten how to make things.
  • Africa is a sleeping giant that will fail to get its act together in 2018 but will improve on recent economic performance.
  • Asia Pacific is set to expand faster with the likes of India in particular racing ahead.   China will continue to find more and more people jobs in 2018 and will lift more people out of poverty further increasing demand for domestic and international consumption.   Japan will finally put decades of deflation behind it and new technology will begin to overcome demographic time-bomb to the benefit of Japanese economy.
  • The Americas, and Brazil in particular, was once a fast growing area of the globe. South American expenditure will be healthier in 2018 and help develop continental and global growth faster than 2017.
  • The UK is constantly put down by people in the UK but the UK economy will continue to surprise most UK economists trying to subvert Brexit and grow faster than 2 percent in 2018.   Low unemployment, faster wage growth due to skills shortages and rising housing prices will encourage UK consumers to spend more and manufacturing and services sectors will push UK growth faster supported by a return of the construction sector.
  • Middle Eastern countries will benefit from rising oil prices and rebuilding of some physically damaged countries.

We’ll look back on 2018 as the real start of the 4th Industrial Revolution as many new developments will turn into fast growing businesses and global productivity will start to increase overcoming the bad old days of doing business.
