Compliance & Risk


Compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a specification, policy, standard or law. In the context of organisations, compliance describes the goal that corporations or public bodies aspire to in their efforts to ensure that personnel are aware of, and take steps to comply with, relevant laws and regulations.

Risk refers to the effect of uncertainty on objectives, whether positive or negative. Risk management is the identification, assessment and prioritisation of risks followed by coordinated and economical application of resources to minimise, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events or to maximise the realisation of opportunities.

Compliance & Risk Journal, published in six editions per year, serves the needs of Compliance Officers, Risk Managers and Legal Advisers by providing timely and relevant practical advice and guidance.
