The evolving risk landscape necessitates an evolved response.
Risk Management is the process of identifying, analyzing, assessing, and communicating risk and accepting, avoiding, transferring, or controlling it to an acceptable level considering associated costs and benefits of any actions taken. Effective risk management improves the quality of decision making. While risk often cannot be eliminated, actions can usually be taken to control risk.
