Compliance and Risk Management Fundamentals (online)

Learn how to identify the variety of compliance and enterprise risks, undertake a risk assessment and develop strategies for reducing risk, monitoring risks and implementing risk control. This program examines the context in which risk exists and provides participants with techniques for treating and mitigating risks.

About this course

Considering both positive and negative risks, the program includes taking advantage of opportunities to support organisations in developing mature and strategic approach to risk management and compliance. 

Ideal for Corporate Counsel or other business leaders who need to contribute to the enterprise’s strategic direction, possess relevant knowledge and a full understanding of “risk”, and be the “authority” for assessment: separating the compliance function from this strategic assessment and mitigation process. 

Through this program, participants will be provided with a comprehensive overview of compliance and enterprise risk management. The program demonstrates the practical application of the ISO:31000 risk management process and the ISO:19600 standard for compliance.


Seven CPD units (one unit per hour)


This course offers a virtual learning experience for participants through interactive webinar workshops. Zoom capability enables our highly trained facilitators to divide participants into breakout rooms for role plays, group activities and discussions.

The facilitator will move in and out these breakout rooms to observe and provide personalised feedback. Our facilitators are accredited to deliver training via webinar and skilled in using screen sharing and white board functionality to ensure participants remain engaged and involved.

To ensure high levels of interaction and personalisation, we strongly encourage participants to ensure they enable both video and audio on Zoom when participating in a workshop.
