Key risks (operational, financial, reputational..) which could potentially impact the success of the event and ways to mitigate these risks

The IGF risk register (provided in electronic version, as an attachment to the Venue Operations Plan), is structured as a matrix, defining for each risk the following information:

  • Risk ID
  • Risk name
  • Impact (description)

  • Risk rating:  the Overall Risk rating is the product of the Probability of Occurring and the Severity of Impact ratings. The following guide provides an overview of the rating scales


[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text 0=""]

Value Probability of Occurring Severity of Impact Existing Controls
1 Very Unlikely Minimal Non-existent
2 Unlikely Minor Weak
3 Possible Significant Adequate
4 Likely Major Robust
5 Almost Certain Massive Excessive


  • Existing Controls and Risk Mitigation Measures
  • Control rating
  • Risk Tolerance / Acceptance. Four options are available:
    • A: Cannot live with this risk; need to develop new operating plans to avoid it altogether; do not do the action which would trigger this risk.
      • M: Risk is tolerable; existing controls are adequate or better; risk tolerance is high – only monitoring of this risk is required
      • R: reduce. Risk is tolerable but existing controls are insufficient; additional treatment (mitigation) of the risk is required.
      • T: Transfer. Risk is tolerable but threat is transferred by shifting the risk to another party (eg. Via contracts or insurance);
  • Additional Risk Mitigation Recommendations
  • Future Risk Rating (Out of 25)
  • Target Completion Date
