Course Description

What internal and external risks could impact the government organization, and what approach can be used to uncover and alleviate such risks?

A risk assessment is a great option for governmental entities to evaluate areas with the greatest needs and highest risks – and mitigate those risks through strengthening internal control, improving cybersecurity, focusing on resources, and other planning.

This online CPE course is designed for individuals who would like to obtain a basic understanding of the risks government entities face. One question that every government organization has to answer is “What can go wrong”.

Risks can come from employee errors, fraud, natural disasters, or other sources.  How does a government organization identify risk and determine its risk appetite?  Not all risks can be eliminated so how do we mitigate the negative effects of those risks? How do we manage risks to reduce the consequences the government entity may face from those risks?

Robert Minniti's CPE webinar covers an overview of risk assessments and best practices for conducting a risk assessment. It also discusses right-sizing the risk assessment process for your government entity, how to identify risks, how to assess risk likelihood and impact, and how to develop an action plan from your risk assessment results.
