Risk Assessment Obstacles

Here are some common obstacles we face when conducting our risk assessments. We are all naturally bad at risk. We have a tendency to catastrophize, or over-think some of our risks. That leads into looking too far into things or spending too much time on risks that might not really matter. Or we can do the exact opposite. We can glance over some vital risks in our environment, or not spend enough time on considering their impact. Another obstacle that companies may face is the inability to communicate. Having open communication during a risk assessment is key to getting a look at what’s truly happening in your organization. It’s important to divorce your gut and have open conversations about what’s going on within your company.
