Financial crises, war, cybercrime … the challenges to your business today are greater than ever. That's why it's crucial to manage your risks. How do you do that? With ISO 31000, the international standard for risk management.
Are you part of your company's top management, or are you a risk analyst, line manager, project manager or auditor? Then this standard is an absolute must-have. Because ISO 31000 gives you guidelines to integrate risk-aware decision-making into your company at policy level, in your daily operations and even for projects.
What advantages does risk management offer? We list the top seven benefits for you below:
ISO 31000 makes you sharper. You gain access to international best practices around risk management. The result? You focus on your objectives and increase your chances of achieving them.
Thanks to a thorough risk analysis, you increase your chances of making good decisions right away. Unnecessary long-term costs are a thing of the past.
With ISO 31000 you create a risk-aware culture at every level of your organisation. This means well-considered decisions, for example in the allocation of resources.
Do you apply ISO 31000? Then you show the outside world that you not only identify risks, but also analyse and manage them. That boosts your reputation.
Did you know that risks are not necessarily negative, but can also have a positive impact? On achieving your objectives, for example. After all, with ISO 31000 you learn to spot opportunities like a pro.
Is your organisation growing ? Don't worry, you won't have to introduce a new risk assessment process. Even for a scaling organisation, ISO 31000 provides you with all the tools you need.
ISO 31000 fits seamlessly with other standards such as ISO 9001 for quality management and ISO/IEC 27001 for information management. So you can continue to professionalise smoothly.
Risk managers still too often operate on the sidelines of business operations. ISO 31000 helps them to make risk management an integral link. Operationally and strategically.
