ISACA has launched a Risk Starter Kit that includes a plethora of tools and templates to help with risk assessment, risk appetite, risk maturity assessment, risk policy creation, and other related tasks. Risk management is critical to minimizing disruption and ensuring business continuity in the face of challenges, as businesses have learned all too well in recent years. To assist businesses in developing their own customized risk management program ISACA will offer tailored risk management templates and policies.
Paul Phillips, Director of Event Content Development and Risk Professional Practice Lead at ISACA commented, “Risk professionals know that a strong risk management program requires a coordinated spectrum of activities that are integrated into the business and involve support and buy-in from across all levels of the enterprise. It takes time and reflection for enterprises to perform risk management functions and having a trusted foundation from which to design these risk activities adds significant value. These tools will help enterprises meet their unique goals and needs within their industry and region.”
The Risk Starter Kit is developed by a group of global risk experts and includes guidance and templates that provide enterprises with a solid foundation for developing their own customized risk management tasks tailored to their specific needs. Instead of creating each tool to perform standard risk management tasks on their own, enterprises can save time by downloading the components and editing and customizing them based on their own needs and key risk management functions. ISACA members can get the Risk Starter Kit for free. ISACA also provides risk resources such as the Risk IT Framework and the Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) certification.
The offered resources include a Risk appetite statement, a Template for risk assessment, Risk reporting, and Risk governance tools, such as an IT risk management policy and a risk committee charter, Risk maturity analysis, Job descriptions for IT risk management, Template for risk scenarios, the risk and control library, and Register of Risks.
