Our mission

The world is changing and so does risk management. The importance of risk management is increasing. Within various businesses, governments and organizations, but also within various organization managements; from supervisors and directors to managers and employees. Some sectors have taken an early interest in the development of risk management, other sectors only at a later point in time or not at all. The CRO Institute offers a platform where risk professionals from various business sectors can exchange knowledge, experience and good practices. This is how we strengthen and increase the strategic effectiveness, the legitimacy of the participating organizations and the relevance of risk management.

Our vision

Remain Relevant! In this changing world, we believe in cross-sectoral inspiration. We connect today’s risk professionals through a relevant risk management platform where they can exchange knowledge and experience.

Our goal

We want to further develop the field of holistic, strategic risk management. To this end, we make cross-sectoral connections and we encourage mutual exchange of knowledge.

Our strategic vision

Organizational legitimacy for businesses; that’s where risk management should lead to.
This legitimacy can be achieved by promoting the continuity and credibility of the profession.

  • We create a strategic vision

  • We create profound experiences
  • We are thought leaders
