Join us on Wednesday 27 October 2021 for a webinar presentation titled Critical Risk Management made simple

  • The Critical Risk Management (CRM) road map
  • Obtain management commitment
  • Establishing a framework
  • Preparing CRM workshops
  • Facilitating workshops
  • Identifying critical risks
  • Critical control selection
  • Critical control design
