All activities of an organization involve risk. Organizations manage risk by identifying it, analyzing it and then evaluating whether the risk should be treated in order for the organization to achieve its stated objectives. Throughout this process, they communicate and consult with stakeholders and monitor and review the risk and the controls that are modifying the risk in order to ensure that no further risk treatment is required.
