RIMS International Resources and Programs

RIMS’ vision is to be the global leader in all aspects of risk management. In support of that vision, our organization is working hard to better understand the needs and interests of risk managers around the world, and to develop more relevant resources and programs to address those needs on an international level. Here are some of our current initiatives for members worldwide.

Online Resources

Virtual engagement: Opis, the RIMS Information Network, is a new way for RIMS members to access content, exchange information, collaborate and strengthen skills. This smart technology delivers customized content recommendations directly to you, based on your personal competencies, skills and interests. You can seek out engagements and groups relevant to your professional, geographical or industry needs, or form your own group and get the discussion started! Visit our website for more information. 

RIMS’ International Center for Risk Management provides risk professionals with tools and resources to support their global risk management efforts. This section contains our searchable Risk Knowledge library, a repository of useful materials such as RIMS’ Executive Reports, survey findings, contributed articles, industry research, benchmarking data and more.
