Risk management deals with the identification, assessment and various strategies that help mitigate the adverse effects of risk on the organization. Management uses risk management as a strategic tool to mitigate the loss of property and increase the success chance of the organization.
It is caused by internal and external sources. The external risks are those that are not in direct control of the management. These include political issues, exchange rates, interest rates, and so on whereas, internal risks include non-compliance and operational risk among others.
The critical risks have an adverse impact on the business and thus they should be prioritized.

It is important in an organisation because without it, a firm cannot possibly define its objectives for the future.
