ERM Glossary: Residual risk

[this page | pdf | references | back links]

Residual risk is any risk that remains with an organisation following the application of its risk management process. It may result from a positive decision to retain the risk or an inability to mitigate or transfer it to someone else. It may also arise as a secondary risk arising from some other response to risk.
