Identify, manage and collaborate on risks in your organisation using a highly digitised and fresh approach to Risk Management
The use of spreadsheet software has almost become ubiquitous in organisations around the globe. In fact, the convenience and flexibility of spreadsheet software often makes it the go-to approach for capturing the results of risk assessments.
Whilst this approach leads to a quick and easily manageable process in many smaller organisations, it does have its drawbacks.
The limitations of spreadsheet programs can increase the cost, time and resources needed to complete risk assessments. These limitations include:
- Sharing and use of unprotected documents
- Formula errors, human error and cell linking
- Challenges with reuse and repeatability
- Multiple worksheets and workbooks leading to version conflicts
What’s more is that the process tends to be performed “behind closed doors” and often is performed in a once-off effort. This has no real impact on changing the risk culture of an organisation and certainly makes it far more challenging to drive accountability and ownership of risks and controls. Even more challenging, is the task of keeping track of actions which have been designed to enhance controls in order to mitigate the identified risks.
Risk Manager seeks to address these challenges.
