Course Description


All organizations face increasing demands for better corporate governance. An essential element of any framework for corporate governance is an effective approach to risk management.


All institutions undertake many kinds of risk management as part of their general management.  Nearly all have programmes covering health and safety issues, such as fire precautions and public liability insurance; some have gone much further. A useful stage in developing the risk management process is to evaluate the scope and strength of existing procedures (such as insurance assessments, disaster planning, and health and safety) and try to improve their effectiveness.


In this course we will discuss different drives for risk in all institutions, causes, effects and mitigations measures. These risk resulted from commercial and legal relationships, economic circumstances, human behavior, natural and human caused disasters, government activities, technology and management.


Commercial and legal relationships are the relationships between the business and other people or entities that are defined by the terms of written or oral contracts, course of business dealings, or law. Economic circumstances are the characteristics and condition of the general business environment within which commerce is

Conducted. Human behavior includes a broad range of positive and negative human activity that may affect a business' ability to reach its goals. Natural and human caused disasters are the major events that cause significant damage, destruction, and/or human casualties, arising either from natural hazards (such as floods, wildfires, earthquakes, hurricanes, thunderstorms, tornadoes, or snowstorms) or human caused events (such as acts of terrorism and major industrial accidents). Government activities include all of the functions undertaken to operate a political unit, including adopting and enforcing laws and regulations, supplying public goods and services, and contracting for goods and services from private businesses. The reliance on computer, Internet, and telecommunications resources to conduct a business' operations and achieve its goals could cause risks for institutions.


In this course we will discuss in a step by step the risk assessment and management process starting with establishing the risk as priority for every employee and ending by  implementing and monitoring action plan for risk management through institutions.
