Risk for National Security Practitioners: likelihood and consequence in a complex environment

National Security College | Professional course

Summary

Risk judgements are vital in informing effective policies and decisions in the national security community. This is amplified in an era of rapid change and a shifting threat environment. This program will equip participants with tools and strategies to think critically about risk in the national security context. You will learn how to identify risks, consider risk tolerances, and apply risk mitigation measures in relation to the national security environment. The course will also explore the evolving global risk landscape, and will challenge participants to consider how options often must be weighed against competing national policy priorities.

Past presenters for this program include: Professor Admiral (RET) Chris Barrie, Ms Michele Price, Dr Paul Barnes, Mr Brendan Sargeant and others.

“This course was a breath of fresh air in the world of risk management. I have regained a level of appreciation for the strategic risk process and look at it in a different light.”
