Reputation Risk Is Top Of Mind

Two-thirds of directors on company boards say reputation risk is their biggest nonfinancial concern.

Two-thirds (66%) of directors on the boards of more than 190 public and privately held companies surveyed by the accounting firm EisnerAmper say reputational risk remains their biggest nonfinancial concern, down slightly from the 69% who said the same thing last year.

EisnerAmper partner Steven Kreit, one of the study’s authors, says he wasn't surprised. “Particularly with all the news relating to reputational risk we’ve seen—the BP well blowout, the security breaches of customer credit data, and so on—it’s understandable.”
