I have worked as a driving force at Newton Information Technology since its start in London in 1998 and established its business basis in Europe. And in 2006, I have come back to Japan to establish Newton Information Limited as a cutting-edge risk management consulting firm.
Through my 10 years of business experience in UK and 10 years in Japan, I was fortunate to experience and compare the complexity of risk management in European countries where the culture and people are heterogeneous, which leads to a very different environment from a monogeneous country like Japan. Management of the organization is more complex, and people naturally tend to possess higer sense of crisis. The risk management philosophy and methods are more sophisticated and well practised.
As my years in London went by, there was a growing urge in myself to export this knowledge to Japan -- to bring about higher level risk management concept and make Japanese enterprises and society tougher and more ready.
"Risk management" is a process of "ensuring that the enterprise is able to push forward its business stably and safely".
Enterprises are established, and they flourish. As their businesses expand, their influences increase, and they begin to withhold various risks at all levels of the organization. The deals become bigger and in turn possibility of financial risks increase. Business accelerates, then it will be exposed to quality risks and environmental risks. As social responsibility broaden, enterprise will need to consider business continuity risks. So on and so forth...
Enterprises are bound to face all kinds of risks when contributing to the society, and avoiding risk will mean avoiding growth. Only by realizing the impossible of maintaining the balance of its business and risks, would you be able to succeed as healthy, trustworthy enterprizes.
All enterprises have speciality in which they utilize to contribute to the society and economy, but you may not necessary have the knowledge and expertise to manage their risks. This is where we come in.

The difficult point about risk management is that there is no right answer. There is only "how far you want to go" and "how you want to realize it". Yet, there is no point in establishing one if it does not work when needed.
When considering business continuity, enterprises need to assess all risks at all levels of the organization. It will also be important to integrate and possibly tidy up its existing management systems for better future operation.
