Risk Awareness is an assessment of the Risk Maturity of the Board, its grasp and understanding of corporate risk, reputational risk, and its attitude, appetite, and approach towards unseen or unknown risks.
Once evaluated, and the gaps determined, the Board is supported to workshop creative solutions and, with facilitation, address the risk issues pertinent to the organisation and the face it projects to its stakeholders.
A subset of this area is focusing on dealing with a crisis management and embedding the response processes. This includes handling the media and understanding the way social media will impact the reception of the information presented. Training is provided to address risk maturity, risk gaps and determination of the risk landscape and how it can impact the future of the business.
This exercise is not typically focused on the operational risks of the business.
Crises will happen, it is when and how well the organisation responds that defines sustainability in the long term.
