A risk exists when there is exposure to a hazard.

Risk in business exists in every task, in every operational unit. Successful risk management involves creative and proactive thinking, and is a critical part of business success through the achievement of goals and objectives. Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, and prioritising risks of different kinds. Once the risks are identified, the risk manager can create a plan to minimise or eliminate the impact of negative events.
