Risk assessment workshops are an effective way for compliance departments to identify emerging risks and uncover blind spots in mitigation plans. Unlike surveys, a workshop allows participants to respond to detailed scenarios and follow-up questions. It also helps compliance teams hear from many people at once without a heavy investment of time in one-on-one interviews.
Conducting these workshops can give organizations a more thorough understanding of risks in a changing environment, which is especially critical as COVID-19 continues to affect the risk profile and posture of global organizations.
