Welcome to RIMScast. Your host is Justin Smulison, Business Content Manager at RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society.
Today, RIMScast is celebrating their 50th episode! And joining the podcast is Kasper Nielsen, the Chief Strategy Officer and co-founder of the Reputation Institute. Kasper is responsible for designing, developing, and implementing the products and services that guide companies on their reputation journey. He has studied reputational issues over the last 20 years and has consulted companies from across 20-plus industries in 30-plus countries on how to mine, measure, and manage their reputation.
Today’s topic is all about reputation risk, with a focus on how to measure it. One of the challenges of reputation risk management is defining what it is and getting solid data to work with. As an expert on the topic, Kasper explains what reputation is, how to measure it, the challenges that come along with it and how to mitigate them, trends he is seeing, what risk management professionals should be doing to focus attention on intangible assets (such as reputation), and some of the key factors companies fail to consider when they try to assess reputational risks.
