Here at Intelect Solutions we understand just how difficult it can be to assess and categorise risk in the compliance arena. Risk management has been our business for many years. We understand how consistency and objectivity are part of the process. So we’ve put together a tool that we hope will assist. It involves answering some pertinent questions and using some online sources and it’s FREE! There are refinements to be made but initial feedback suggests it’s a worthwhile tool.
