Reputational Risks


Companies need more and more to determine the reputational consequences of a possible risk event or group of events. When assessing the damage caused to the reputation by an event, the organization must consider to what extent this event may reduce the public confidence on the organization’s performance in every dimension.


Outdated methods and resources

Outdated press clipping service tools must be supplemented with strategic media intelligence.

Since a company’s reputation depends directly on the reputation of others in the industry as well as of the relative reputation of the industry. It's essential to have a full context to assess the scope and significance of the coverage, the issues of interest and whether the opinion is positive or negative.

Response = Crisis management

Most companies perform an inadequate job when managing their reputation. They tend to concentrate their energies on countering already existing threats to their reputation. This is not risk management; it is rather crisis management, a reactive approach aimed at limiting the damage caused.

Technological limitations

Traditional methods of analysis are no longer able to manage large amounts of data. Instead, the capacities prompted by enhanced intelligence based on big-data and artificial intelligence are replacing the traditional analysis, by operating against massive amounts of data to assist in searching for known and unknown risk indicators.

The right reputational risk management

In a reputation assessment, the more contextualized, objective and quantitative the approach to assess it, the better.

Integrating the detection of reputational risks into the risk management program of an organization allows companies identifying the emerging threats on a continuous basis.
