In today's world, managing risk has become a necessity, not an option. From global financial shocks to an increased awareness of sustainability issues, the demands made on businesses are changing rapidly, both externally and from within their organizations.
Risk management is crucial to all businesses, regardless of the sector in which they operate. For those businesses working in more than one sector, managing risk takes on even greater significance.
BSI British Standards, developers of the first national standard on risk management, are now taking bookings for their conference to introduce the new standard.
