Do you know the risks to which your company is exposed? Do you monitor and control the use of resources in risk management so that the exposure meets the current risk appetite?
Knowing how to deal with risks can be a competitive advantage for companies.

This is such an important subject that in some sectors the elements of risk appetite and tolerance are determined by regulatory agents, as is the case with the financial system.
