management of risk
Risk management-
Financial risk management is the practice
creating economic value in a firm by using

financial instruments to manage exposure to

risk, particularly credit risk and market risk.

financial risk management requires identifying

its sources, measuring it, and plans to address


Credit risk-

Credit risk is an investor's risk of loss arising

from a borrower who does not make payments

as promised. Such an event is called a default.

Another term for credit risk is default risk.

Market risk-

Market risk is the risk that the value of a

portfolio, either an investment portfolio or a

trading portfolio, will decrease due to the

change in value of the market risk factors. The

four standard market risk factors are stock

prices, interest rates, foreign exchange rates,

and commodity prices.

Liquidity risk-

liquidity risk is the risk that a given security

asset cannot be traded quickly enough in the

market to prevent a loss (or make the


Risk management process-
 Identification
 Create a risk management plan
 Implementation
 Review and evaluation of the plan

the first step in the process of managing risk is to
identify potential risks. Risks are about events

that, when triggered, cause problems. Hence, risk

identification can start with the source of

problems, or with the problem itself.

Source analysis-Risk sources may be internal or
external to the system that is the target of risk


Problem analysis-Risks are related to identified

threats. For example: the threat of losing money, the threat of

abuse of privacy information or the threat of accidents and


Create a risk management
The risk management plan should propose
applicable and effective security controls for

managing the risks. For example, an observed

high risk of computer viruses could be

mitigated by acquiring and implementing

antivirus software. A good risk management

plan should contain a schedule for control

implementation and responsible persons for

those actions.

Implementation follows all of the planned
methods for mitigating the effect of the risks.

Purchase insurance policies for the risks that

have been decided to be transferred to an

insurer, avoid all risks that can be avoided

without sacrificing the entity's goals, reduce

others, and retain the rest.

Review and evaluation of plan-
Initial risk management plans will never be
perfect. Practice, experience, and actual loss

results will necessitate changes in the plan

and contribute information to allow possible

different decisions to be made in dealing with

the risks being faced.

Potential risk treatments-
Once risks have been identified and assessed,
all techniques to manage the risk fall into one

or more of these four major categories:

 Avoidance (eliminate, withdraw from or not

become involved)
 Reduction (optimize - mitigate)
 Sharing (transfer - outsource or insure)
 Retention (accept and budget)

Risk avoidance
This includes not performing an activity that
could carry risk. An example would be not

buying a property or business in order to not

take on the legal liability that comes with it.

Another would be not flying in order not to

take the risk that the airplane were to be

Risk reduction-
Risk reduction or "optimization" involves
reducing the severity of the loss or the

likelihood of the loss from occurring. For

example, sprinklers are designed to put out a

fire to reduce the risk of loss by fire.

Risk sharing -
"sharing with another party the burden of loss
or the benefit of gain, from a risk, and the

measures to reduce a risk."

The insurance policy simply provides that if an

accident (the event) occurs involving the

holder then some compensation may be

payable to the policy holder that is

commensurate to the suffering/damage.

Risk retention -
All risks that are not avoided or transferred
retained by default. This includes risks that

are so large or catastrophic that they either

cannot be insured against or the premiums

would be infeasible. war is an example since

most property and risks are not insured

against war, so the loss attributed by war is

retained by the insured.

conclusion -
Risk management is simply a practice of
systematically selecting cost effective

approaches for minimising the effect of threat

realization to the organization. All risks can

never be fully avoided or mitigated simply

because of financial and practical limitations.

Therefore all organizations have to accept

some level of residual risks.
