Risk Management: Why and How


This course focuses on the risk management of potential accidental losses. Potential accidental losses-loss exposures-are the primary focus of risk management and the risk management process discussed in this course.

The risk management process is not really difficult to understand. As this course will demonstrate, it is simply a common-sense approach to using a number of readily available tools to handle an organization's risks in the most cost-efficient manner possible. The course uses a hypothetical example to illustrate key risk management principles.
