Communicating and Developing the Business Case
The key task behind planning and conducting a risk assessment program is developing an understanding of the organization to be assessed.
Risk Management Process
Before starting the design and implementation of the risk assessment program, it is important to understand the objectives of the risk management program and to evaluate both the extent and efficacy of existing risk control measures and system. Learn how to do this efficiently.
Analyzing the Risk
What is the scope of the risk assessment program? Is it meeting the organization's risk assessment objectives? Does it consider the context of the organization, its needs, and requirements? The scope should define the processes, functions, activities, physical boundaries (facilities and locations), and stakeholders within the boundaries of the risk assessment program. Learn how to match the scope to the resources available.
Treatment of the Risks/Mitigation
Risk rating scales are defined in relation to an organizations' objectives and scope. Risks are typically measured in terms of impact and likelihood of occurrence. Impact scales of risk should mirror the units of measure used for organizational objectives, which may reflect different types of impact such as financial, personnel, and/or reputation.
Organizational Resilience and Risk
Building a resilient organization is a cross-disciplinary and cross-functional endeavor. An organizational resilience approach to managing risk encourages critical infrastructure businesses to develop a more natural capability to deal with unexpected disruptions to business-as-usual activity. Discover the most effective ways to approach resilience that allow organizations to adapt to changes in their operating environment over time.
Test, Measure, Review, Document Control and Assurance
Understand the various tools and techniques that can be utilized to determine risk assessment. Identify how the organization can now bring its individual residual risk ratings together into a portfolio view to identify interdependencies and interconnections. Management can then determine any actions necessary to revise its risk responses or address design or effectiveness of controls.
