Corporate governance and risk management are critical topics that are attracting more attention in business schools and among legislatures, with this trend only increasing. While there are different models for corporate governance and risk management, all of them aim at controlling risks effectively and organizing the relationship between a company and its stakeholders.

Unfortunately, not all companies have this avant-garde look towards this system.
