A risk management process consists of making and implementing decisions to minimise the adverse effects of risk. All successful organisations, regardless of their size, nature or industry, should have effect financial risk management processes in place. When embedded throughout all levels of an organisation, risk management helps both to protect the business and improve efficiency.
Risks to any organisation can take many forms, including workplace theft, data breaches, poor security controls, poor governance or inefficient business processes. Effective risk management provides a measure of quality assurance and helps to keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.
The role of a business risk consultant is to identify the risks to an organisation, assess their potential impact and take measures to reduce them. A customised risk management framework is usually developed and integrated into the organisation. The process can include advisement on accountability and controls, and ongoing assessment and reviews to ensure its overall success.
