  Article Summary  
Corporate governance has been a subject of increasing interest and concern over the past decade as a result of financial bubbles and scandals that rocked the corporate world, and most recently resulted in a global financial and economic crisis.

These market forces have translated into increasing risk for corporate executives and boards of directors, as well as for individuals and institutions investing in these companies.

This CFO Edge article draws on recent corporate governance and risk management material to review types of risks that companies encounter, how they have moved from reactive to proactive stances, and how they see risk management needing to be a board-level activity.

Also reviewed are six key areas of focus where boards need to take action to manage risks. Going forward, corporate executives and boards will need to give these risk concerns a high priority on their governance agendas, or else risk deterioration in their growth, profitability and market share.
