AFERM Summit Training Event

Guidehouse helps Federal government leaders gather and analyze ERM survey data

Guidehouse is a platinum sponsor of the AFERM (Association for Federal Risk Management) Summit Training Event.

The AFERM Summit Training Event is an annual gathering for Federal Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) practitioners to learn the latest governmental risk management policies and best practices. Advancing the practice of Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) in the Federal government through thought leadership and education ultimately ensures accountability for management of risk in achieving organizational objectives.

For the ninth consecutive year Guidehouse, a leading global provider of consulting and managed services to public sector and commercial clients, and AFERM have collaborated to survey Federal government professionals for their insights into the current state of ERM in their organizations.

Results of the 2023 survey, which is designed to provide federal leaders with perspective on the current state and trends of ERM in the U.S. Federal Government, show Federal government leaders have continued to focus on navigating the unknowns that matter, with cybersecurity/privacy, operational/programmatic, and compliance risks topping the list of risk types that capture the most attention and allocation of resources from management.
