Risk Maturity

The concept of risk maturity is one that has largely developed outside of the academic realm. It has come to be understood as the measure adopted by organizations to help them better understand their overall risk position including the value created from risk management initiatives. Despite lacking a clear or universal definition, risk maturity is a concept that is becoming better understood (and ultimately finding favor) amongst senior management.[1]
