risk management

Strengthening risk management processes in higher education

While the need to manage risk is widely recognised within businesses, it is also just as important and a growing priority in the academic world, with many colleges and Universities rethinking how they look at risk.

Even before the challenges posed by COVID-19, the education sector was managing a multitude of operational and compliance risks, from health and safety, data breaches to ethical issues, all of which have an impact on financial health and reputation.

Due to the broad structure of colleges and Universities, autonomy can separate departments, faculty and staff from a centralised approach to risk, making it more difficult to implement a traditional risk management approach and overcome risk management barriers.
