Survey: companies have deplored a lack of candidates with the required profile

According to a survey undertaken by Accenture, over one half of companies questioned (54%) declared that they were in difficulty in seeking adequate risk management profiles. This represents a major challenge for companies who are placing increased importance on risk management than two years ago (98%). 
To properly manage the company reputation, only 1 in 4 respondents (28%) stated that they relied in the risk post for assistance. The three forms of risk most feared within companies in the coming two years are: (1) legal risks (62%); (2) market risks for 52% of respondents (fluctuation in volumes, margins or demand); (3) regulatory risks (49%). The interviewees did however indicate that they are faced with a lack of talent. This is notably the case in the domains of data and risk analysis (61%), risk technology (60%) and management of regulatory adaptation programmes (58%).
