Welcome to RIMScast. Your host is Justin Smulison, Business Content Manager at RIMS, the Risk and Insurance Management Society.


Today’s guest is François Beaume, Vice President of the Association for the Management of Risk and Insurance of Enterprise (AMRAE) and Vice President of Risks and Insurance at Sonepar.


In this episode, François will be sharing his many great insights around the new RMIS Panorama report that was recently released by AMRAE and EY. This report provides an in-depth look at the organizations and professionals who are using risk management information systems, how well they’ve adapted, and guidance for those seeking their first or newest framework. The Panorama also explores the most requested RMIS modules, which range from risk mapping and incidents management to audit. It also provides expert advice on best practices around the lifecycle system, from the original requirement design phase to the change management program following implementation. Tune in to hear all of François’s insights!
