First, you need to concentrate more on understanding the psychology of risk instead of the mathematics involved.

From IRM, we give you 5 golden tips in risk management practice. Enjoy.

  • Identify and assess risks:

Risk is everywhere and success in business boils down to identifying and managing potential risks associated with the objectives being pursued.

  • Create a risk aware culture:

Everyone in the organisation must know about risk and the potential impact and consequences of risk. Risk managers must then approach risky issues with a respect not contempt of risk. This is a positive risk culture.

  • Continually reassess risks:

A common phrase goes, ‘The only constant thing is change’. Everything changes, including risks. Effective risk managers should therefore constantly reassess their risks to know what if any, has changed. Mitigation measures should also appropriately evolve with identified changes.

  • Reduce your risk exposure:

All risk arises from exposure. Organisation and operational risk exposure situations must be well understood, reduced and where possible eliminated.

  • Review the cost of risk mitigation:

Effective risk management should be a cost-effective undertaking. Risk managers must therefore review the cost of risk mitigation and ensure that it does not outweigh the benefits.
