Risk Assessment Methods

A RIMS Fellow Workshop

Risk assessment lies at the heart of every risk management process. The information generated by risk assessment informs or validates decisions your organization makes.

This workshop will describe a broad range of risk assessment techniques from the ISO 31010 Risk Assessment Standard.

Learn to determine the best risk assessment methods suitable for your organization and apply them accordingly within your organization's risk management framework.
