This masterclass provides shipping executives and senior leaders a high-level examination of tools and best practices in risk governance and risk mitigation strategies. Through the use of various risk assessment tools, the programme highlights major risk areas with varying degrees of severity. Upon attending, you will have analysed the impacts of various risk factors on business continuity, how they shall be mitigated, documented and monitored.
