Board Risk Assessment

By: 3xcd  09-12-2011

Board Risk Assessment

Board scrutiny has increased significantly and has developed the area of Board Risk Assessment and Board Risk Management.

In working with both Boards and institutional delivery of risk management and risk transfer, 3XCD has utilized its assessment vehicle to link the development of Board liability and Board risk management into assessment of risk developed by the Board of Directors.

This assessment is critical for Board members and extremely important to shareholders.

3 X CD now offers this service through its product line "Board Shield". This helps assess inherent risk and risk transfer with the Board of Directors.
