This session, which is part of CFNI's Accelerator Programme, was designed specifically to help organisations identify and manage the pertinent risks at this challenging time. The webinar was jointly delivered by Denise Copeland, NICVA and Nicola O'Neill, Risk Management Consultant at Marsh Ltd.  

Denise outlined the key risks that organisations are facing at the moment, including disruption of activities, working from home, returning to premises, financial, governance and compliance.  She has included links to further related resources below. 

Nicola outlined the function of the risk register, including what makes a good risk register as well as the importance of using a risk management framework.  She highlighted that: 

"strong risk management and oversight of principal risks creates resilient organisations that can respond and adapt in the face of disruption and changing environments."
