Topic Background:

Risk is present in all businesses. The ability to identify the potential cause of a risk event occurring and take corrective action is critical to the risk management of a business or any operating entity. The cause of risk is typically the result of the presence of a risk condition which is a weakness in the conduct or management of a business activity that can precipitate the occurrence of a risk event. For each operating unit and business activity of an organization, as part of its risk management oversight, there should be a set of indicators that will help identify risk conditions in the organization. These indicators are called risk metrics.

There are a number of generic risk metrics that typically apply to any business activity and then there are others that apply to a specific business activity. Risk metrics should consider all types of risk which would include: market risk, credit risk, operating risk, technology risk, fiduciary risk, client relationship risk, legal/regulatory risk, and guideline observance risk. Once a risk metric identifies a risk condition, it is then the responsibility of business management, together with its risk management unit, to undertake corrective action to address the condition. This risk identification and corrective action process will eliminate or reduce the potential occurrence of a risk event.
