Risk Governance

Service People Further reading

Our Risk Governance services range from risk management training for boards and management teams to working with the board and management to design a risk management policy, process and framework, including guidelines, that are appropriate to the specific organisational environment. The process/framework we use is based on AS ISO 31000:2018 and customised to meet our clients’ specific requirements (e.g. APRA-regulated; ASX-listed).

We can assist your organisation with:

  • Assessing the fundamentals of enterprise risk management (ERM).
  • Establishing a preliminary high-level enterprise risk register.
  • Developing a risk heat map to define the risk appetite.
  • Implementing an easy to use risk management and reporting framework.
  • Agreeing a risk appetite statement for the organisation.
  • Developing policies and procedures for risk, compliance and business continuity management.
  • Professional development on risk and risk management.

We can assist organisations with established risk management systems by:

  • Performing an enterprise risk assessment.
  • Building a detailed enterprise risk register.
  • Embedding risk oversight into governance processes.
  • Enabling the organisation to supervise, monitor, and report against risk.
  • Advising on how to implement a culture of continual improvement in risk management.
