No one can accurately describe what will happen in the future. That doesn’t mean we can’t reasonably anticipate negative events and their outcomes and provide for practical approaches to responding or preventing damage caused by them.
That’s what risk management is, a proactive planning process for anticipating negative events and providing plans for managing those possibilities. Enterprises need a framework for analyzing risk and developing sound treatment plans in response to their realization.
This presentation will guide the listener through the basic understanding of a risk framework and how they are constructed.
