Business Analytics & Information Systems Toolkit

Advisory Services / Risk Management / Auditing / Governance

Risk analysts review all potential risk factors involved in running a business. Such risk factors may include problems with the physical location of the organization, potential for robberies, and the likelihood of employees being injured on the job. After reviewing these factors, analysts make suggestions on how to safeguard an organization against risks, such as purchasing additional insurance plans or implementing employee safety protocols.  The majority of risk analysts work in offices as they examine statistical reports and other documents. Sometimes analysts must go into the field to gather data, which could involve walking through businesses, talking with employees, and taking accurate measurements of the work environment.
