About this course


Effective risk management supports the achievement of organization’s overall objective and plays a vital role in ensuring that an entity is well governed. Historically, risk management was managed in silos and as a separate activity without proper integration and embedding across the organization’s operations; this approach is no longer sustainable in the 21st century of increased VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity). Events over the years have established that the lack of a proactive risk management program can have a serious knock-on effect on organization’s sustainability. This has therefore necessitated the adoption of an enterprise-wide risk management approach which considers an integrated and cross-functional method to managing organization’s risk.

This course provides a robust insight to the subject of ERM from the perspective of ISO 31000, COSO ERM Framework and other leading practice. It explores key features of each standard/framework to provide participants with improved knowledge and practical skills to adopt key elements of these standards in implementing a comprehensive framework for organizations.
