Read time: 3 minutes

Risk management is activity directed towards the assessing, mitigating (to an acceptable level) and monitoring of risks. In some cases the acceptable risk may be near zero. Risks can come from accidents, natural causes and disasters as well as deliberate attacks from an adversary. In businesses, risk management entails organised activity to manage uncertainty and threats and involves people following procedures and using tools which provide for conformance with risk-management policies.
