Programme Overview

The global pandemic has highlighted the need for robust risk identification and management and worldwide regulators and investors are demanding that organisations identify and manage their ESG responsibilities.

Whether it be planning for strategic shocks such as changing trade relationships and regional regulators imposing new compliance requirements, or local initiatives to respond to data protection or the day-to-day management of operational risks, organizations need be proactive in identifying the risks they face and respond to them appropriately.

Across all sectors, private, public and others, organizations are putting in place enterprise risk management frameworks to derive benefits from a more systematic approach and respond to these challenges. In all cases, the risk culture needs to be supported with an effective control framework and a strong internal audit team is essential to the success.

This course addresses the interlocking areas of enterprise risk management, mitigation and internal control drawing upon international best practices, Standards and best practices. It examines, contrasts and compares risk management approaches as formulated by COSO and ISO 31000. We will discuss the identification and management of strategic risk, maximising benefits from the ESG agenda and integration of risk management with internal control.

Topics covered include the COSO ERM Framework and ISO 31000; why use enterprise risk management; key approaches to enterprise risk management; identifying and managing strategic risk; developments in ESG reporting and management; creating a risk management function; risk assessment and evaluation of internal controls design and testing their operating effectiveness.

The course will review the authoritative guidance  and look at its practical application. We will draw on real life case studies and participants’ experiences to examine and discuss the issues and show how to apply the guidance.
