Add a risk
To add a new risk, click the “Add a Risk” button in the webapp menu.
Please Note: Your Risk Management Team has the ability to switch off the ability for users to capture new risks. In this case, if you wish to report a risk or raise awareness about a control, you should contact your Risk Management team directly.
If you have access to record new risks:
An input form will open when you click the “Add a Risk” button in the webapp menu
If you're not sure how to define Impact, click the blue question mark above that field for guidance.
Add details into each of the input fields presented, noting the following:
If the risk function you're looking for is not listed, contact the webapp administrators and ask them to add it. Contact details for the administrators are available in the HELP menu.
If the category you're looking for is not listed, contact the webapp administrators and ask them to add it.
If you're recording the risk on behalf of somebody else but cannot find their name in the Risk Owner field, click the link provided and follow the instructions presented.
Most users will not see the radio buttons titled “Risk has been validated by risk management” and “This is a strategic risk” as these are reserved for the risk management team to help manage the risk register. However, if you have administrator privileges, you can set those fields as well.
