Was Silicon Valley Bank a failure of risk management?
I have seen some unfortunate postings on social media and in the news. Self-appointed experts telling us what happened, why, and whose fault it was. There’s a political battle going on as well, with people blaming federal government administrations, regulators, and so on. I’m not going to get into that. But I think it is important for governance, risk, and audit practitioners to understand the situation and its implications.
