There are a wide range of good practice reports and authoritative standards both nationally and internationally which emphasise the role that risk management can play in helping organisations address the many challenges they face. Risk management should be a regular senior management team agenda item as well as a frequently discussed issue for Audit committees, boards and governing bodies
