The major global events that took place in 2020 reminded us of the need to correct the angle of analysis of conventional risk matrix and to constantly question certain approaches that have become obsolete. CBE conducts research and development to provide its customers in the process of international audits with reliable reporting tools and constantly review the approach of the risk analysis matrices.
According to the 2020 risk barometer produced by Allianz, the top 3 risks in the concerns of Risk Managers are as follows:
Top 1 : the risks related to cybercrime, cyber-extortion
Top 2 : the impacts to the supply chain and operating losses
Top 3: political risks & political instability
The consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic will most likely raise the financial impact of the supply chain and operating losses as well as the global health risk to a break-even pole position 2021.
We face greater risks of abrupt change.
In a riskier and unstable environment, auditing security risks and internal procedures is the business of specialists. CBE, in close collaboration with a specialized partner, recognized internationally, is able to offer you an audit of your methods, procedures and your security systems.

According to the study conducted by the magazine Usine Nouvelle, in partnership with Orange, over a panel of 210 French firms (steel industry, food processing, research, automotive … ) 43.8% of the firms surveyed have already been confronted with security breaches over the past 12 months, and 13% do not even know if they have been affected by a cyber attack.
At a time when some European countries are slowly recovering from the recession, other European countries are back on a growth path. European based firms are looking for stronger growth opportunities in areas where the economic rates are higher than those of Europe. These new markets are also synonym of new risk exposures.
Entering these new markets should imply a thorough analysis of risks related to the economic, political, cultural situation of the host country and special attention should be given to the study of CAT risks.
Sending an employee overseas on mission must also be considered in terms of risk in case of bodily injury and need for urgent repatriation (not excluding the greater risk factors related to terrorism and kidnap). These recommendations apply regardless of the industry.
