When setting up your Risk Assessment, you can answer seven simple questions to automatically populate your risk register, eliminating the need to manually add each risk into the register. A risk register is used to identify, assess, and manage risks associated with an organization. It serves as a log or database that tracks all identified risks, their severity, and the action steps to mitigate them. This automation enhances efficiency and streamlines risk management.

Note: It is crucial to answer the survey questions accurately to ensure all potential risks are covered. This accuracy helps in building a robust risk management framework that enhances your organization's compliance and operational resilience.

Get your Risk Assessment started

When accessing Risk Assessment, if you do not have any risk added to your risk register, you can answer seven questions to automatically populate your risk register instead of manually adding risks into your risk registry.

By the end of the survey, you can either retake the survey, automatically build your risk register, or exit the onboarding process.

  • If you exit onboarding, you will not have the risk automatically populated in your risk register.

  • If you do build your register, your risk register is automatically populated. You can always customize your risk register, by removing or adding risks.

  • If none of these questions apply to you, you can retake the survey, learn more about risks, or exit the survey without affecting your risk register.

Start the survey

To start the survey to automatically populate your risk register, follow these instructions. At the end of the survey, you will have the option to automatically populate your risk register or not.
