"Enterprise Risk Management: Identifying Risks in B2B E-commerce Relationships".
Arnold, Vicky 2005. Published by Inst of Internal Auditors Inc. ISBN 0894135546

This book contains the results of a research survey conducted in the US on supply chain and business partnering risk and on risk assessment in order to document these B2B (business to business) related risks.

Review: the most value to be gained from the book are the guidelines on likely B2B e-commerce risks. The risk assessment methodology applied is much the same as that already applied by many organizations in performing ERM risk assessments. The process and methodology explained and applied by the author can be applied to the South African context especially where the business environment is technologically advanced, ie where organizations no longer function individually but are now functioning as a critical cog in the integrated macine of the e-commerce value chain. Attached as an appendix to the book is the questionnaire used in the survey ; these questions could be useful when compiling your own questionnaire for risk assessment. Prepared by Dorothy Knoetze, IIASA.
