Maintenance and Monitoring of a Risk Action Plan

Prioritise and plan the control activities at all levels to implement the risk responses identified as necessary, including identification of costs, benefits and responsibility for execution. Obtain approval for recommended actions and acceptance of any residual risks, and ensure that committed actions are owned by the affected process owner(s). Monitor execution of the plans, and report on any deviations to senior management.

Hide Control Practices  help

  1. Develop the risk action plan containing prioritised risk responses. Identify priorities, responsibilities, schedules, expected outcome of risk mitigation, costs, benefits, performance measures and the review process to be established.
  2. Obtain approval for recommended risk response actions from appropriate authorities. Define and document ownership for approved plan activities, and inform affected parties.
  3. Ensure that accepted risks are formally recognised, approved by senior management and recorded.
  4. Monitor execution of the action plan, report progress and deviations to senior management, and adjust the plan accordingly.
  5. Periodically review the action plan:
    • To ensure that it continues to efficiently and effectively address the IT risks identified
    • In light of any changes to business objectives or relevant IT systems
    • To identify improvement opportunities to the risk assessment and management process
