ISO 31000:2018 - Master Class Risk Management

English course.

Risk management is a priority for any organisation or business. It’s easy to see why: the better you manage risks, the higher your performance. You’re better equipped to deal with change, gain the confidence of stakeholders and grow. Since its launch in 2009, helping organisations achieve those goals has been the objective of the ISO 31000 standard, which was recently revised.

Updated in February 2018, the ISO 31000 standard has a major impact on organisations everywhere. It does not only provide best practices, structure and guidance for risk management professionals; it is also important for a wide range of other business roles. After all, risk management now is a key component of all management system standards that apply the High-Level Structure (HLS).
