One Day Seminar: Robust Risk Culture & Risk Assessment Process

CPE Hours: 8

In addition to an effective governance, risk management and compliance framework and process, a robust risk culture can help encourage value creation instead of mere compliance in an organisation.

While building an effective organisational culture is a topic for human resources, developing a strong risk culture should be the focus of risk management and business functions. It is crucial that management knows how to build a risk culture that is aligned with the organisation’s business strategy and ensures that all staff perceive and manage risk in the manner which the board and management expect.

It is also of utmost importance that management is able to put in place a strong risk assessment process to identify, analyse and evaluate the nature and impact of risks and opportunities in order to effectively allocate limited resources and achieve the organisation’s goals. Thus, equipping the risk management and internal audit functions with the necessary knowledge and skills will also be essential to support management in doing so.
