“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.” ~ Vincent van Gogh
Risk is the basis for business growth. Without taking risks there is no growth and there is no progress.
The aim of risk management is to accept risks that are within the organization’s objectives, risk appetite and risk tolerance limits. How do you decide which risks are acceptable and which are not?
Risk treatment ensures an organization’s approach to the treatment of risk is aligned with its risk appetite and strategy and integrates business continuity strategies and crisis management within the organization’s risk management strategies and plans.
Selecting the most appropriate risk treatment option(s) involves balancing the potential benefits derived in relation to the achievement of the objectives against costs, effort or disadvantages of implementation.
Justification for risk treatment is broader than solely economic considerations and should consider all the organization’s obligations, commitments and stakeholder views.
This course is based on international standards like ISO 31000 and Federation of European Risk Management Associations and will explain practical risk appetite and tolerance and its role in the effective treatment of risk. It shall also introduce participants to business impact analysis (BIA), business continuity planning and crisis management.
The course shall walk participants through the process and methodology of treating risk and examine in depth the risk treatment options and the criteria for accepting, avoiding, mitigating or transferring risk.
