Risk Identification

Risk Identification

Definition

The qualitative determination of risks that are material—that is, that potentially can impact the organization's achievement of its financial and/or strategic objectives. This is often done through structured interviews of key personnel by internal (e.g., internal audit) or external experts. In some cases, the organization's business process maps are used to guide the risk assessment. See alsoRisk map.
