This course is an introduction to risk management. It looks at broad enterprise-wide risk management, encompassing four major categories of risk: hazard (insurable), operational, financial and strategic, and contrasts this with the traditional risk management process which focusses on hazard risk only.
You will learn about global risk management standards and guidelines, such as ISO 31000 and the COSO ERM – Integrated Framework, and the basic concepts involved in the risk management process. Various methods of risk identification and analysis tools and techniques, such as risk registers and risk mapping will be examined. An overview of financial risk is also discussed including financial leverage, liquidity risk, and capital investment risk. Risk oversight, monitoring and reporting are discussed from the perspective of governance and control.
