Chapter 1 - Basics
Gone are the days where the CFO simply manages the preparation of financial statements for the organization. Now, more than ever, CFO’s are responsible for other operational parts of the organization, including risk management. This course is a how to guide for CFO’s that are being asked to take on the role of risk manager for their companies. We will explore how to measure and score risks in an organization. We will also talk about the Entity-Wide risk management approach and both the importance and difficulties of implementing an on-going risk assessment program.
