Global Risk Landscape 2023

The Age of Risk Multiplier


The Age of Risk Multiplier

It is time for businesses to embrace a paradigm shift in risk management, that is the central theme of this year’s Global Risk Landscape Report. Global leaders in risk are trying to understand and manage risk multipliers rather than individual risk factors. The risk multiplier effect refers to individual risks overlapping and amplifying each other with devastating and unexpected consequences. The challenge for global businesses is understand how the possible risk multipliers can affect their risk profile and operations. They need to prioritise the individual risks that have the greatest potential to amplify other risks. The Global Risk Landscape Report also examines the attitudes of risk leaders to a range of emerging and evolving risks such as fraud, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and digital transformation, Cyber attacks and climate change. We examine whether risk leaders view these issues as a significant risk to their business and what actions they are taking to mitigate risks.

  • How well global businesses are identifying with the risk multiplier effect
  • How important the role of risk leaders is becoming worldwide
  • Why AI and digital transformation is at the top of the agenda for global businesses
  • How organisations are dealing with challenges such as human capital risk, fraud risk and the threat of climate change


The report and survey cover a range of issues and deliver a huge amount of useful data. You can use the report to gain insights that can help inform your risk management processes and to understand why leading businesses around the world are moving toward a more risk-welcoming approach.


Regional Risk Whitepapers

We have prepared four regional risk whitepapers that explore the differing business risks and attitudes to risk for Europe, Middle East and Africa, America and APAC regions. The Global Risk Landscape Report is based on a survey of 500 C-suite executives across Europe, MEA, APAC and the Americas. The survey tries to understand their approach to risk management and how they are responding to global events that threaten their businesses. This is the eighth edition of the Global Risk Landscape Report.
