Risk Management Framework

“Risk Management is the term applied to a logical systematic method of establishing context, identifying, analysing, evaluating, treating, monitoring and communicating risks associated with any activity, function or process in a way that will enable organisations to minimise losses and maximise opportunities. Risk Management is as much about identifying opportunities as avoiding or mitigating losses.”
