Course Description :

Global Risk Study surfaced a growing imperative for better collaboration between risk functions (risk management, compliance, internal audit and other risk functions). As organizations embrace the fourth industrial revolution (4IR), risk functions need to be active participants, helping to achieve and protect the value envisioned. Risks are becoming increasingly complex—and interconnected—and without close risk function collaboration, blind spots to risk will inevitably result for key stakeholders throughout an enterprise, and impact strategic, financial and operational initiatives.

Evaluating the range of available risk management techniques and choosing the most appropriate action in each case are increasingly significant elements of managerial responsibility in today’s business environment.  We cannot eliminate risk entirely, but our challenge is to identify the right risk to take and to minimize its potential negative impact. 

This training seminar will highlight:

  • The knowledge to identify, analyse, evaluate, treat, monitor and control risks
  • An overview of leading-edge tools and techniques used in risk management
  • Insights into the fundamentals and role of risk management
  • Effective risk management procedures based on ISO 31000:2009
  • Increasing confidence in managing risk and exercising internal control


At the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the need for risk functions (risk management, compliance and internal audit) to collaborate to produce more comprehensive risk visibility and greater understanding of risk inter-relationships
  • Understand risk management and its application within an organization
  • Identify, evaluate and control risk in strategy and operations of your organization
  • Design and implement an effective risk management process
  • Ensure that your organization can meet the rising standards of corporate governance
  • Communicate the characteristics of effective risk management to your teams

End of the Workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
