Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is the process of identifying, quantifying and managing the risks that an organization faces while applying it to the overall Bank Strategy. While it is impossible to remove all risk from the organization effective risk management requires a strong risk culture and risk governance. Risk culture is the system of values and behaviors within the organization that shapes the day-to-day decisions that we all make. Developing a risk culture is a continuous process # it is consistent with, and builds upon, our Core Values, Leadership Competencies, and Code of Business Conduct and Ethics in that it is based on a common understanding that managing risk is everyone's responsibility and creates an environment that encourages the open exchange of ideas, willingness to elevate concerns, and a commitment to "doing the right thing." As such, risk culture is a critical element of the Bank's risk management efforts.
