 Risk Response Planning

Risk Transfer

Transferring risk involves finding some other party who is willing to accept responsibility for          its management, and who will bear the liability of the risk should it occur. Transferring risk can be an effective way to deal with financial risk exposure. The aim is to ensure that the risk is owned and managed by the party best able to deal with it effectively.

Risk Mitigation/Reduction

Risk mitigation reduces the probability and or impact of an adverse risk event to an acceptable threshold. Taking early action to reduce the probability and/or impact of a risk is often more effective than attempting to repair the damage after the risk has passed.

Risk Exploit

Eliminate the uncertainty associated with a particular upside risk.

Risk Share

Transferring threats and sharing opportunities are similar in that a third party is used, those to whom the threats are transferred take on the liability and those to whom opportunities are allocated should also be allowed to share in the potential benefits

Risk Enhance

This response aims to alter the “size” of the positive risk. Seeking to facilitate or strengthen the cause of the opportunity, and proactively targeting and reinforcing its trigger conditions.

Risk Acceptance

Ultimately it is not possible to eliminate all threats or take advantage of all opportunities – we can document them and at least provide awareness that these exist and have been identified, some term this „passive acceptance.
