What is the CRO Pathway? This is a program designed to connect and support risk professionals that are striving to advance their careers in governance, risk, and compliance, as well as to elevate risk management at their organization. The CRO Pathway is:

  • Education: A growing and evolving curriculum of executive content, including videos, interviews, analyst studies, and more that risk professionals can consume at their own pace.
  • Connection: Interacting with risk executives, Executive Forum members, Archer experts, analysts, influencers, industry user groups and other advisors that want to connect with each other on the Archer Community and elsewhere.
  • Events: Archer-sponsored events, like webinars, user groups, and Archer Summit, where risk professionals learn, interact, and build their knowledge and networks.

Why explore the CRO Pathway? Practitioner knowledge is vital, but today’s risk professionals need opportunities to learn from and interact with risk leaders and GRC experts to learn the “soft skills” of being a successful risk leader.

Who is the CRO Pathway available to? Archer customers, partners, and employees.
