Enterprise Risk management at King's
The Senior Executive Team has responsibility for overseeing risk management within the university as a whole.
- implementing policies on risk management and internal control
- assessing strategic risks (top-down)
- receiving risk reports from Deans of Faculties and Heads of Departments (bottom up) and
- considering the potential aggregate impact of the university's high likelihood, high impact risks.
At a practical level the university has established a risk register and control assessment and has sought to incorporate the management of risk into the corporate planning and decision making processes of the university, notably within the business planning process.

The Audit, Risk and Compliance Committee on behalf of King's College Council plays a key role in reviewing the process.
