Risk Management

What is risk? It means different things to different people, but one thing is sure; it confronts us in every aspect of our daily life; be it when doing our personal online banking to safety in the workplace.


We’ve done a lot of international research on the perception of risk over the last year, as to the primary concerns of businesses, and their perception of risk. The results make interesting reading. It is clear that each country has its own concerns and issues; therefore a single ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach is not the solution.

Our research has enabled us to identify the seven principle areas seen as presenting risk to businesses, and to offer relevant certification and training to address these challenges.


Risk is relative – we all have different concerns and different priorities. What is keeping you awake at night? By identifying and focusing on your own areas of risk and vulnerability, you can increase your organisation’s resilience.

Read on to map your risk and find the most appropriate solution for your organisation. It may be that one of the standards associated with specific risks is more appropriate: PAS 555, ISO 27001, ISO 20000-1, ISO 22301, ISO 37001, ISO 19600. Alternatively, you may find that the solution to your concerns lies in adopting a risk-based approach to the ’classic’ standards (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001).
