Risk and controls self assessment. How to maximise value from your risk assessments.

"Risk Management is a Culture, not a Cult. It only works if everyone lives it, not if its practiced by a few high priests." - Tom Wilson

Carrying out a periodic health check on your business, through the conduct of Risk and Controls Self Assessments (RCSA) is one of the fundamental elements of good risk management. There is however, a big difference between a strong and a weak  assessment.

Join us for a practical look at the keys to great assessments and equally the pitfalls to look out for.
