CPD: 4 hours


It is difficult, these days, to pick up a newspaper or magazine and not find stories involving serious problems which have suddenly struck particular enterprises. The cause may have been external to the enterprise (such as a natural disaster like earthquakes or floods) or internal (such as a failure to comply with regulations, or issues with quality control).

Whatever the cause you are left to wonder why top management were not aware of the possibility so that they could take evasive action – or at least be in a position to react quickly and positively when the problem arose.

Risk Management looks at the context in which the concept of risk management has developed, the sort of infrastructure and processes it requires, and the impact it has on traditional control systems. It also looks at some of the problems which have made national and international news.

  • Understand the concept of risk management
  • Identify the impact risk management has on a company
  • Understand the processes required for risk management to be put in place
  • Develop an understanding of the Bribery Act and its implications
