Looking up at buildings in a city

What internal and external risks could impact your public sector organization, and what approach should you use to uncover and alleviate such risks?

A risk assessment is a great option for governmental entities to evaluate areas with the greatest needs and highest risks – and mitigate those risks through strengthening internal control, improving cybersecurity, focusing of resources and other planning.

Various organizational functions can perform risk assessments for different purposes such as internal audit plan development, systems/technology evaluation, fraud assessment and enterprise risk management. In general, similar tools and processes are used.

Baker Tilly’s on-demand webinar covers an overview of risk assessments and best practices for conducting a risk assessment. It also discusses right sizing the risk assessment process for your government entity, how to identify risks, how to assess risk likelihood and impact, and how to develop an action plan from your risk assessment results.
