Risk analysis and risk management strategies are critical to building and ensuring sustainable activity. Operating risks are among the primary risks to address because they are internal, and are to a large part within the realm of management’s direct influence and control.  This course presents an overview of the issues that pose risks to organizations in their operations. A strong internal control system is one of the best mitigation strategies for managing internal operational risks in an organization.
