Things to consider when developing a risk management plan for your businessJanuary 9, 2019
Preparing a risk management plan is a foundational part of securing your business. There are many kinds of risks that businesses are vulnerable to, and it’s important to have a plan in place to help mitigate damage and keep your business secure.
Here are some of the steps to take to get your risk management plan in a good place.
- Understand your risk categories: Most businesses face risk in several categories, meaning their risk management plan needs to address multiple areas of business. Areas like business strategy, compliance issues, operations, financial, and risk to reputation all need to be considered in creating a risk management platform. You must understand what policies need to be in place and what trainings should happen to prevent risk in key areas.
- Ask questions: Brainstorm about some of the situations that would disrupt your business. What would happen if there was a natural disaster that prevented access to your building? What happens if someone is injured on your premises? What if that person is a customer? What happens if access to the internet goes down or your business suffers a cyberattack? What’s the plan if the power goes out? What happens if your staff strikes or members of your team quit? Having a plan in place for some of the worst-case scenarios is one of the important parts of risk management.
- Invest in expertise: It’s not your job to predict the future, just plan for it.
