What is ISO 31000 risk management?

ISO 31000 is a framework and process for managing risk in organisations. ISO 31000 risk management framework works alongside other standards, such as ISO 27001. ISO 31000 Risk Management - Guidelines help organisations identify risks, assess their likelihood and impact, and define mitigation strategies. The guidelines assist organisations to integrate risk management into significant business activities and functions.

Organisations that use ISO 31000 as the basis for their risk management start with appropriate leadership and a commitment to ensure risk management practices are integrated and adopted across the entire organisation. The risk management framework needs to take into account an organisation’s internal culture and external context with appropriate roles defined with appropriate resources, responsibility and authority to manage identified risks.

Communication is a key element to the successful implementation of ISO 31000 in New Zealand. This involves sharing information with targeted audiences and allowing participants to provide feedback. Communication and consultation should be timely and ensure that relevant information is collected, acknowledged and shared with feedback provided with a goal to continually improve the organisation's risk posture.

Why does ISO 31000 matter to your organisation?

No organisation operates in a vacuum. Understanding internal and external risks is critical to the ongoing survival and success. An ISO31000 risk management process should be an integral part of management and decision-making. Risk management is not a discrete activity that is undertaken in isolation. It should be integrated into an organisation’s structure, operations and processes and applied at strategic, operational, program and project levels.

ISO 31000 risk management framework

Armed with an effective ISO 31000 risk management framework and process, compliance with regulatory obligations can be simplified. At their heart, regulatory regimes are focussed on reducing risks for specific stakeholders. When your organisation has a well considered and thoughtfully deployed risk management system, compliance with regulatory obligations is streamlined. And because you have a well documented and implemented risk management plan, your internal and external stakeholders, including customers and partners, can be assured that their interactions with you are well protected.

Using an established and proven framework improves your organisation's resilience. As you have already considered risks and consequences, and put mitigation plans in place, you can be assured that should an adverse event occur, you have appropriate response plans to reduce their impact so your organisation can continue operating.
