ISO 31000 Risk Management - Principles and Guidelines

ISO 31000 Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines is a risk management standard designed to help large and small public and private organizations to effectively manage the risks associated with their operations. Effective risk management strategies can be applied to risks with both potentially positive and negative impacts on your business.

By understanding the opportunities and challenges presented by risks, you can improve your bottom line and avoid negative financial and legal impact on your business. ISO 31000 Risk Management verification and training by SGS assesses the degree of performance against these principles and guidelines.
