The graph below was created using Google’s charting tools.
The graph shows what is considered to be the most important risks that a company faces. This conclusion is based on a survey conducted by the accounting firm KPMG, in 2011, of audit committee members serving at least at one US public company. 240 committee members responded.
Surveyed members were asked to choose the top three risks that their company faced. The graph shows risks selected as a percentage of all selections made.
The data in the graph was taken from the KPMG publication “2011 Public Company Audit Committee Member Survey – Highlights”. Click here to gain access to the publication (PDF file). The graph shows only one result of many about company risks and their management that came from the survey.
