Setting Limits and Keeping within the Limits.

This is a FREE to attend event

Places are limited.  Early booking is advisable.

In its capacity as the national standards body, NSAI is the convenor of a meeting of the International Organization for Standardization,  ISO 262 Project Committee : Risk Management in Dublin from 13th – 17th February.  NSAI invite you to attend a planned "open session" to be held in the National College of Ireland on the evening of Wednesday, 15th February.  This is a unique opportunity for risk practitioners to meet and engage with the members of the International Committee contributing to the development of international risk management standards.

Defining Risk Appetite is both difficult and unreliable.  There is no single definition that is universally agreed on, there is no single unit of measure that works in all situations and peoples’ perception of risk varies with their own experience and knowledge.  Yet the term is widely used by organisations like COSO, IRM and the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.  Many organisations, in their desire to comply with the recommendations, struggle to articulate what their Risk Appetite is.  In this forum we will discuss how to fundamentally address these difficulties and we will hear from one organisation how they have successfully implemented a risk strategy that keeps risks within their “appetite”.
