2Risk Management experience, broadly defined, is occupational experience that includes the competent application of frameworks, tools, and solutions that support risk-informed decision-making to achieve an organization’s goals. Occupational experience spans from early-stage program design, to risk financing and executive risk advising. This includes discovering, analyzing, implementing, or leading the risk management practices for or on behalf of organizations. This experience may also include the development, selection or offering of risk transfer or financing solutions. Irrespective of any job specific focus, the core element of the risk management experience is the alignment of risk-informed decisions with the organization's strategy to create and protect enterprise value.
