Complexity, globalization and digitalization are just some of the elements at play in the risk landscape—and data is becoming a core part of understanding and navigating risk.
How do modern finance leaders view, navigate and manage enterprise risk with data? Dun & Bradstreet surveyed global finance leaders across industries and business types. Here are the top trends that emerged from the study:

3. Risky Relationships—Only 20% of finance leaders say the data they use to manage risk is fully integrated and shared.
