Key Risk Indicators (KRIs)

Course Description

Key Risk Indicators (KRIs) are observable and measurable information that can be used to

identify the symptoms and “red flags” created by risks. This course explores how to identify KRIs in your organisation, linking them to both the risks and the

controls necessary to contain them. It examines how to collect, score and find patterns in KRIs across different units in your organisation. And it looks at the steps employees can take to report and escalate issues about KRIs to the appropriate management or committees within the organisation.

Who is this training for?
