As described more fully in the “Risk Factors” section to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, the Company’s management and Board of Directors manage a variety of internal and external risks. The Board of Directors plays a vital role in managing the risks facing our Company.
- Through the Audit Committee, the Board of Directors manages potential accounting risk through oversight of accounting and financial reporting and disclosure processes and systems of internal accounting and financial controls as well as other Company risks, including cybersecurity matters. Senior financial executives report to the Audit Committee at each committee meeting on significant financial and accounting matters. The Audit Committee evaluates operational and cyber-security and data risks via quarterly reporting (or more frequent as may be required for cyber-security and data risks) from various departments and disciplines within Company.
- Through the Compensation Committee, the Board of Directors manages potential risks associated with our compensation programs, ensuring the program does not encourage executives to take unacceptable risks. The Board of Directors confers with our general counsel and outside legal counsel, when necessary, in overseeing legal and regulatory risks.
- Through the Nominating and Governance Committee, the Board of Directors manages risks associated with board and committee succession and establishing and effecting corporate governance principles.
