The risk of not adopting some form of artificial intelligence (AI) can be much greater than the potential risks of implementation according to a new RIMS Professional Report, ‘Making Sense of Artificial Intelligence and Its Impact on Risk Management’.

Authored by RIMS Strategic and Enterprise Council member and director, Microsoft Enterprise Risk Management Tom Easthope, the report explores forms of AI available to organizations, common implementations scenarios for risk professionals to consider, as well as opportunities for those professionals to advance their careers in light of the emergence of AI technologies.

“While the discussions about the long-term impacts of artificial intelligence on society are important to understand and track, the more pressing issue is to understand the impacts on your industry, your organization and, ultimately, your career,” said Mr. Easthope. “Risk professionals should find ways to participate in strategic discussions around AI and educate themselves on the world of possibilities it offers them and their organizations.”

The report is currently available exclusively to RIMS members. To download the report, visit RIMS Risk Knowledge library at www.RIMS.org/RiskKnowledge
