ISO31000 Risk Management Explained
Understanding risk is central to achieving business goals. ISO31000 provides guidelines and principles to ensure that risk is managed effectively and efficiently, and can be iused in any organisational setting.
What is ISO31000?
ISO31000 is the international standard for risk management. Developed by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO), it offers a systematic and structured approach to identify, assess, and manage risk in any organisational context.
Why ISO31000 Matters
– Consistency: ISO 31000 establishes a universal framework for risk management.
– Relevance: ISO 31000 is applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, industry, or sector.
– Confidence: ISO 31000 equips organisations with tools to face uncertainties with assurance.
Key Requirements of ISO31000
1. Framework Design & Implementation: Organisations must establish a framework tailored to their needs, aligned with their external and internal context.
2. Risk Assessment & Identification: Recognise, categorise, and comprehend the risks that might affect the achievement of objectives.
3. Risk Evaluation: Determine the significance of risks in relation to the organisational context and risk criteria.
4. Risk Treatment: Develop and implement measures to modify risk. This can include avoiding, optimising, transferring, or retaining the risk.
5. Monitoring & Review: Regularly review and monitor the risk management framework and process to ensure it remains effective.
6. Communication & Consultation: Engage with relevant stakeholders throughout the risk management process. This ensures shared understanding and commitment.
The Benefits of ISO31000 Implementation
