Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) is a new concept of managing risks holistically and in Malaysia, such a concept is still relatively new among Malaysian companies.  On a positive note however, the ERM concept appear to be receiving much attention over the recent years from various businesses and industries in Malaysia. This particular study aims to determine the level of ERM adoption among the Government-Linked Companies (GLCs) and to examine the influence of Chief Risk Officers (CROs) and Board of Directors (BODSs) on the ERM implementation itself. Findings of the study showed that the more established GLCs were more receptive to the adoption of ERM as compared to the less established ones. Also, companies that adopt ERM were found to have appointed the Chief Risk Officers (CROs). In addition, the quality of Board of Directors (BODSs) was also found to play a significant role in respect of ERM implementation.
