Risk Evaluation

 The objective of risk management is to understand what and how to prevent in relation to possible cases of damage, but also what and how to mitigate in terms of consequences and what to possibly transfer to other entities by means of, for example, appropriate insurance coverage. Identify, analyze, evaluate, communicate, monitor and eliminate the risks associated with any activity, or process in order to make the organization able to minimize losses and maximize opportunities. All this in a perspective of business continuity, that continuity of the production process or service delivery. Elements of the process considered are: setting the context of the risk assessment (identification, analysis, increase) of the risk treatment across which we highlight the following activities: communication and consultation, monitoring and review. Establish the context and politics (external context: social, cultural, political, cogent, financial, technology, internal context: governance, organizational structure, responsibilities, policies, information systems and flows; for risk management policy). Risk Identification (sources of risk, impact areas, events, circumstances, consequences, goal and full list of events that may affect the achievement of objectives). Analysis and risk weight; the analysis (determination of the consequences and attributes as the verisimilitude) provides inputs to the phase weighting, as the level of risk. Increase: comparison between the level of risk and risk criteria. Risk Treatment: deciding not to start or continue activities that result in the onset of risk; hiring or increase the risk in order to pursue an opportunity; remove the source of risk; to change the probability; edit their consequences; share the risk with other / and part / s (including financial control) and to consider the risk by informed decision.

Risk assessment plans to identify, analyze, evaluate, communicate, monitor and eliminate the risks associated with any activity, or process in order to make the organization able to minimize losses and maximize opportunities. It must necessarily be an ongoing process aimed at improving since, over time, external factors or internal risk may change and should include an estimate of the costs of risk management, in terms of economic resources, capacity and means. The next step in setting the objectives will be to detect processes, responsibilities by assigning specific tasks and responsibilities. In this phase it will be crucial the involvement of both the function Officers that their collaborators, coordinated by a consultant, to obtain maximum involvement and dissemination of the Quality System. In order to verify the correct and full implementation of the quality system set up during the last month of the project, before by the inspection of the chosen certification, it will be carried out thorough auditing activities on all subjects to the certification process.
