Risk management

All organisations are exposed to internal and external factors that create uncertainty as to whether they will be able to achieve their objectives. Risk management helps organisations identify potential threats and opportunities, determine appropriate strategies or controls and make informed decisions. Risk management is essential to an organisation’s governance at all levels and activities.

Enterprise risk management based on ISO 31000

ISO 31000 defines the principles and guides establishing a risk management framework and process. IEC 31010 describes some possible techniques that can be used in risk management processes.

For risk management to be effective, organisations should adopt ISO 31000 principles at all three levels – strategic, programme and project, and operational. Organisations should also implement a risk management framework that helps in effective risk management through the risk management process. The risk management process then primarily addresses identifying, analysing, evaluating, and treating risks.
