Course Description

A successful business strategy depends on the ability to perform an astute risk assessment. That’s hard enough to deliver under the best of circumstances — and COVID-19 leaves companies performing risk assessments under some of the worst. Clearly fresh risk assessments are necessary.

COVID-19 has transformed a host of business operations, and that means a host of business risks have changed, too. At the same time, however, your ability to assess those risks has come under strain, often in very practical ways. The purpose of the business assessment is to identify core functions and key people in your business to understand:

  • Parts of the business most under strain, so you know what to protect.
  • Opportunities to boost certain products or services to meet changing customer demand.
  • New ways of working that can benefit both employees and customers

The question becomes, what specific factors should professionals take into account to perform a business risk assessment in this COVID-19 environment. It is easy to say “everything” has changed but what does that really mean to your business and your strategies?

This CPE webinar will be interesting for Accountants, Finance professionals, Internal auditors/Professionals considering the role of internal audit, and Legal and Compliance professionals as it covers the following subjects:

This Online CPE Webinar covers following Key Topics:

  • The concept of business risks assessments
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic had changed the way organizations should approach and execute their assessments
  • Risk factors embedded in the new business environment
  • Discuss the reality of taking this opportunity to pause and take a critical look at your current business so you know what to protect and where to focus your efforts.
