There is no opportunity in life or business that does not come with risk – the question, therefore, is how much risk are you willing to bear? How can you predict and describe the transformation of your organization’s complex risk habitat? What strategies can you use to steer your company towards sustainable development? What institutional and organizational preconditions need to be in place for effective implementation of these strategies?

Risk is the effect of uncertainty on the achievement of objectives, and Risk Management is for those who want to understand the uncertainty involved in achieving their objectives and who want to manage their risks so as to ensure a successful outcome.


If Risk is defined as the “probability or threat of a damage, injury, liability, loss, or other negative occurrence that may be neutralized through pre-mediated action,” then Risk Management according to ISO 31000 is exactly that pre-mediated action that reduces risk to an acceptable minimum. It regulates the requirements of the risk management process and introduces the methodology of risk analysis. It also facilitates the application of many sector-specific standards, especially in the financial sector but also for IT, medical devices, or the automotive industry.

Risk Management covers risks both operational and strategic in nature, with a special focus on their interaction and development over time.

Risk Management is a tool for companies of any business sector that would like to use their management system to identify and analyze risks at an early stage, in order to make them controllable. The implementation of Risk Management increases both the awareness of risk and of opportunity, and their pro-active approach helps to ensure positive business development in the future. Thus the management of risk is woven into the organizational fabric and culture across the organization.

Mastering risk assessment and optimal risk management based on ISO 31000.

ISO 31000:2018, Risk management – Principles and guidelines, provides principles, framework and a process for managing risk. It can be used by any organization regardless of its size, activity or sector. Using ISO 31000 can help organizations increase the likelihood of achieving objectives, improve the identification of opportunities and threats and effectively allocate and use resources for risk treatment.

However, ISO 31000 cannot be used for certification purposes but does provide guidance for internal or external audit programmes. Organizations using it can compare their risk management practices with an internationally recognized benchmark, providing sound principles for effective management and corporate governance.
