Event Details


This programme will provide participants the opportunity to understand how risk management and oversight is achieved through intentional and methodical planning and preparation, underpinned by an enabling risk culture exemplified by the Board of Directors and Senior Management.


With reference to law, regulations, guidelines and best practice, participants will gain theoretical and practical insight into this critical component of an organisations activity that can make the difference between success and failure. Learning will be reinforced by the use of a real-life case study.


When implementing risk management and oversight, it is essential for organisations to meet legal and regulatory requirements in a practical way. By attending this course, participants will become familiar with an internationally recognised risk framework and discuss enablers and blockers to its implementation, including an enabling risk culture.

  • The universal applicability of good governance and its application to risk
  • The major components of risk governance
  • The legal and regulatory environment and the resulting obligations on the directors
  • The role and responsibilities of the Board in ensuring a robust risk framework
  • The difference between risk appetite, risk tolerance and risk capacity and how to use them
  • The use and value of a risk register and risk matrix
  • How the Risk Committee supports the Board and works with the Risk Function
  • The three lines of defence and their use, boundaries and interaction
