The RIMS Risk Maturity Model

What is the RMM?

The RIMS Risk Maturity Model (RMM) is a best-practice framework for enterprise risk management. Developed as an umbrella framework of the international, cross-industry standards, the RMM allows organizations to measure how well their risk management efforts align with these best practices. As a result, organizations are provided a maturity score and an actionable set of guidelines to improve their programs and gain the many benefits associated with maturity.

What are People Saying about the RMM?

Great survey tool, will be very helpful as we begin to define, benchmark and improve our Risk Management department.
The survey was easy to take and was very helpful in providing a qualitative measure of progress.
This is a very helpful exercise that just by ‘asking the right questions’ leads the participant to important insights.
